Photo tips for sale horses
Selling your horse online requires you to provide high quality photos that showcase the best parts of your horse. The photos you provide will be the first impression people get of your horse, and first impressions matter. Photos are worth the investment to hire a professional if at all possible. If there is not a professional available, you can achieve quality photos with a standard smart phone camera. As experts in online horse sales, we have experienced firsthand the difference in sale prices based off of photos alone. Below are our top 10 tips for getting top dollar for your horse, through photos.
1. Action photos that grab the buyer's attention. They should be clear and again avoid distractions.
2. Getting horses ears up can be a challenge! What works great is having your 3rd helper (the runner) have horse sounds pulled up on their phone. When you play that, your horse will perk his ears!
3. Lowering the head can be done by using a stick, broom or plastic across the ground in front of them.
