Our Pre Sale Package

In the current climate, selling your horse can be difficult – not to mention all the hassle of taking quality photos and producing a video to attract the right buyer for your horse. We understand that a full sales package is not suitable for all clients. Our pre sale package prepares your horse, and you, for the selling process.

We can help with our  pre sale package, designed to present your horse, ready for sale, complete with professional sales aids. You then sell the horse yourself, with no sales commission due.

This is how it works:

  • We  book you and your horse in for a 45 minute ridden assessment with Alice. She will observe you together and give pointers where necessary.
  •  Alice will ride your horse for a short while to assess it. We will then complete a short questionnaire with you.
  • We can give you guidance on selling your horse. At AP Equestrian we have bought and sold quality horses for 20 years and have vast experience in effectively marketing your horse to achieve the best possible price and the right new home for your horse.
  • Subject to satisfactory assessment, your horse is then booked in for our Presale Package at Ford Farm Stables

The package includes:

  • 2 weeks training livery to work towards the agreed schooling goals
  • Full trim, clip (as required)  and show quality professional turnout ( including plaiting for photographs and video)
  • A lesson for you and your horse in the last few days of the 2 week package – during this lesson we will take professional quality photographs and make a short video of you riding your horse. Alice will help you show off your horse to its best advantage and provide a ‘tip sheet’ for you to take away
  • A portfolio of photographs to use when marketing your horse – head shot, in hand and ridden shots
  • A fully edited short video of you riding your horse

This package is great value  - a one off charge of £500

A schooled, well prepared horse that is shown off correctly and advertised well will sell more quickly and for a better price. The selection of beautiful photographs provided will attract more buyers to your horse’s advert and may lead to a choice of suitable homes for your horse.
