One of the best ways to find horses for sale is through a riding instructor, trainer or other trusted equestrian professional. These professionals often know of suitable horses for sale and can help make sure the horse is safe and healthy.
Horses also are often listed for sale through online and newspaper classified advertisements. Websites such as Equine.com are designed specifically for people buying and selling horses. Breeders sell purebred horses and often have multiple horses for sale at the same time.
Horses also are often available through auctions and sales, but these can be a risky place for a beginner to buy a horse. Some horses are sold at auction because they are difficult to sell privately, due to health or behavior issues. Some respected production and dispersal sales may be safer.
