I market quite a lot of hunter/jumpers/eventers/dressage horses and use Equine.com, Dreamhorse and Horsetopia primarily. But I find I sell just as many off my own website as any online advertising sites. I jsut tryed putting some free ads on Horseclicks yesterday, will see if I get anything from them, since it's free for photo ads, nothing lost if not. I seem to get the most REAL buyers from Dreamhorse. I have also used warmbloods-for-sale.com (not restricted to WB's BTW!) and sold a few thru that site. Horsetopia I like because for the cost you get a video for like $15.95, which is I think for 6 months so a great deal, BUT the video is just 1 minutes. MAKE SURE to put a video on your ads! It makes ALL the difference. Alsobe ready for the idiots and tire-kickers! That is why SO many people send horses to me to sell, it can be a nightmare dealing with people!

And consider the usea3.org site, since we assume it would be mostly eventers looking there

I have had lots of luck on Dreamhorse. I have always gotten lots of feedback. Good luck!

When I was looking for a horse, I looked at equine.com and dreamhorse. But I also:
1. Looked at USEA classifieds
2. Looked at every Area's web classified
3. Looked at COTH classified, and
4. Looked at every professional eventing barn's website I could find/think of.
I actually found the horse of my dreams on equine.com, but he was cross-listed on one of the USEA web classifieds.

I recently sent two event horses to Courtney Cooper at C Square Farm to sell. She had them both sold in less than 2 weeks. She handled everything including the vettings and I had my money is less than a week. It was a very good experience.
I usually sell my horses from one of the sales web sites like equine.com. But these two I wanted to get sold quickly as I no longer had a rider for them. Courtney has tons of contacts and folks looking for quality, so it was no problem to find buyers for them.

I've had luck buying and selling through the Area 3 website. I don't know where you are located but I also LOVE Florida Sport Horse.
Check to see if you have similar local resources.!
