Horse Shopping

Services We Offer:
 Don't go shopping for your next horse alone! Regardless if you have taken lessons from us or not, I am able to assist in choosing the right horse for you. We will interview you on what you are wanting in your next horse in terms of skill, size, age, price and what personality you prefer. I can also assist in developing a list of candidates.

I will go with you look at the horses your most serious about. I will evaluate his confirmation, ground manners and will be the first ride the horse. If I think he isn't a good fit for your riding style or if I think he's dangerous to ride, of course I'll let you know, and the evaluation for that particular horse will be over.

I charge a flat rate of $40 for each horse viewed. If you have more than one horse to see in one day, I'll discount each additional horse.

 We highly recommend your final candidate be given a complete exam by an equine vet. I also recommend, especially in the case of retired racehorses, that leg X-rays are done. 


 We strive to serve our customers. We welcome your unique horse and training situation. No matter how unruly you think your horse is, chances are we've seen worse! We also understand rider fear and returning to riding after many years away. We start all of our riders out slowly and let you tell us when your ready to do more.  Feel free to contact us and ask questions! Thank you
