    Default On the horse hunt (what websites to look at?)

    So I just sold my horse (very sad about that but it is a good home and he will teach a young rider everything he taught me) and am on the horse hunt. I am looking to do jumpers and was wondering what websites you all use when looking.

    (I hope this is ok to post, it is not a classified)

    Thanks in advance for your help

    dreamhorse.com

    Word of mouth through reliable trainers is probably the best.

    Well, I have very limited experience in horse-hunting, but I do love to window shop (don't we all???).

    I usually peruse Equine.com and Dreamhorse.com. These sites, IMHO, show you a selection from all price points and all skill levels. I've also looked at www.warmbloods-for-sale.com, but this site seems to show strictly high-end horses. That's fine if you have the weight in your wallet, but not everyone does.

    I'm sure others will have a ton more options for you, too.

    Best of luck!

    Word of mouth IMO is the best. I looked and looked for a prospect for my husband. One day, I was grumbling about not finding anything that fit my requirements and wallet. I happened to be talking about it to my farrier and he said, "oh I know this lady that has a 17hh Tb gelding that is WAY too much horse for her."

    Bing Bang Boom, I purchased Charlie for $500 and he's doing training level eventing. You just never know where they are going to pop up!

    Good luck! I do love "window shopping" via equine.com and dreamhorse.com

    I know nothing about this place, but I was browsing, and the horses look lovely. I thought you might be interested:

    I was looking at those horses, they are all gorgeous. I wish I was able to go up to Washington and look at the horses personally, I don't know if I could buy a horse without seeing it in person first.
