Selling in the UK...Really need help!

Most of you know I'm selling Duffy.

HOWEVER.

I have had minimal luck out here. Seems no one wants a horse thats 18.1hh ;)

So, the thought struck me to advertise in the UK. But I need websites, and preferable free ones, to advertise her on.

I know a few breeders out here that have sold to the UK, so it may be worth it, or nothing may come of it.

All and any help appreciated in the matter!

Not sure that they're free but quite a posh magazine/website is Horse & Hound, other magazines Horsemart, Preloved, Your Horse, Horse.  Perhaps you can search them on the internet and see what you think.

Try Kate Bunten at Turlood stables, she will often either buy from you or advertise for you on her website.  She has dealt a lot in foreign horses although she has a lot of Irish ones at the moment.  Her website is www.horsesforsalescotland.com.

Preloved, horse and rider and horse exchange are free, a basic ad on horsemart is £15 and another £10 to put a video on. Horse and Hound is £20 to advertise on the internet, if you want an ad in their mag it is £55.

Be warned though that horses aren't selling in the UK either. Even when you think you have sold them the buyers pull out of the sale at the last minute, which is what has happened with me with my buyer for Charlie .

Thanks guys :D I found preloved after you'd mentioned it before Micki.. I've had two of those. I was devestated.

So I'm not keeping my hopes up till the money is in hand and she's on the trailer. No way now.

But, we will see. its just another option thats all. She's a fab mare.. just too big :S

 Was going to say how come you're selling Duffy??  Duffy's sounded amazing and I've loved reading about Duffy's progress.

Well. I bought Blair from them and they couldn't have been more helpful, Kate spent a lot of time with us and let us try him and get him 5 stage vetted too.  I would use them again definitely.  My friend also used them, the first horse she got from them proved unsuitable after they got him home and they exchanged him with no quibbles and they have a fantastic horse now.  There's a certain person not too far from here that I wouldn't buy so much as a plastic horse from - and that's fact with research!
