    Default Current Horse-for-sale lists?

    I am shopping for my next event partner. Of course I have examined all the normal classified sites. It seems that many barns have information about sale horses but often the information is very old. Can anyone suggest barns that keep their sites updated? Midwest/east preferred.

    The updated JMP Farm list will be fully compiled quite soon. There are about a dozen eventer/field hunter types available. Send me your email address, I will keep you updated.

    teamwindchase keeps their list updated online. Boyd and Silva Martin's, Woodstockeventing, and Blue Hill Farm PA all have sales horses and stay current. Also threeplainbays (jbrp), tebogo sport horses, cady o'daly, csquare farm (courtney cooper). Don't miss Virginia Equestrian (classified ads). I am sure there are many others, but I too see the trend toward facebook (which I don't really love).

    Sporthorsenation is always posting new ones, though they don't always take down older sales horses (and I find it can be hard to search their site). In addition to the ones noted (which give you a bunch of good options), in Middleburg, allforitfarm.com updates its sales horse list regularly.

    I am in the same predicament.... Sellers do us a favor, post ur prices on ur website and link ur videos to youtube for convenience for all of us who are searching. It is frustrating beyond belief when a seller refuses to respond to a text, an email, but finds time to accept ur facebook friend request...then proceed to ignore ur instant MSG a second later. The seller I am referring to had another prospective buyer ask for a return call on her business Facebook page and guess what... The seller erased her post! Mind boggling.... At least I know I am not the only one being ignored....

    I have a Webb Master I pay to keep my site Current, but find updating my FaceBook myself is quicker same w/ adding You-Tube links.

    I will often delete inappropriate comments, Messaging I often fail to check.
    My phone number is on my Business site and is there to be used. I prefer to discuss price off-facebook but all would be listed that are current on Webbsite.
    For some of us OTTB re-sellers the newbies fresh off track of size n conformation go so quick they never make it to Webb-site.
    FaceBook gets a horse seen by so many people so much faster in todays Tech Savy fast passed social media network.
    But I prefer to discuss pricing off board

    Why do you prefer to discuss pricing off board? You're selling something--why keep the price a secret?

    Well that is just bizarre. :/ I will admit that I'm not always as on top of something as I want to be, but do try and reply quickly. If you aren't going to reply or correspond with someone why are you trying to sell or breed? LOL

    Re prices: I pay a web designer, and we update as frequently as possible but really my website is for the info on bloodlines, show experience, etc and a few good (hopefully) photos/video on each horse. We are revamping as I type actually.. But I don't put the prices on my website - I can't update it as easily or as quickly as I can on FB and since most of my horses for sale are young and the price will change based on age, experience, etc. Prices are on my FB page(s).

    I can tell you, as someone who's looking, that videos are VITAL. I have to travel from BFE, and it's very expensive.....but I will travel if I find something that I think is worth it, mostly from video, past record, and talking to the owner. I need to see flat, over jumps, and hopefully XC, too. I also need for the owner to be frank--if I'm doing most of my work at home, without "eyes on the ground", how "forgiving" will the horse be? etc.

    I really hate horse shopping.
