We are a boutique sales barn. When you are shopping for your next partner, whether that be your next upper-level prospect, or just simply your next best friend, know that when you come here you are getting a different approach and a thoughtful process in which I choose horses for my barn.
We have a lengthy process in which we choose our horses. These are all horses I have personally gone and hand-picked. I will not purchase a horse off of a video, I don’t purchase horses off of online adds, and unless I go personally see the horse, and unless it checks off all my boxes, I don’t purchase it for re-sale. I don’t vet everything, however if I question anything, or see that the horse has more than a few starts, I vet before I purchase- longevity is what I am aiming for. Horses that will have a nice long life and a good long career for their next person.
WHAT DO WE LOOK FOR?
First and foremost, temperament. I look for horses with a nice kind eye, and a genuine disposition.
Second thing we look for is soundness and conformation. I look for horses that are correct. A good mover with 3 nice gaits. Often times before purchasing I will see them work under tack, which also helps me make good decisions and gives me a further evaluation of what I may be purchasing.
Third and most importantly, I am looking for a horse that I like to look at, and a horse that makes me smile. Something that makes him/her unique in its own way. Maybe is a bit of a goof or just a love bug, but something that makes them special. For me this is personal. I have spent my life with horses, and I really love when I walk in the barn and see uniqueness in beautiful ways. A horse that strums on my heart strings a bit, and a horse that is happy to see their human. I think that goes a long way, and if you have a horse that just doesn’t give a damn, then you’re basically setting yourself up for failure.
Since we run on a much smaller and more personal scale, we believe in having new horses here for at least 30 days before listing them for sale. That time allows me to assess the quality of the horse and helps us match our horses with the right people for long term success.
We operate on a first come, first serve basis. Prices of horses are subject to change at any time.

Absolutely stunning 6 year old 16.2 TB gelding. This one is the real deal. Nice enough for a professional. Could go in any direction - dressage, hunter/jumper, or would make a nice event horse. Lovely temperament, nice uphill build, and 3 quality gaits. This guy is a true athlete and extremely professional. Shows up for work everyday. Someone will be lucky to own this one. Clean recent vetting on file and ready to go!

“Roy” is an 8 yo TB gelding. He is a big boy at 16.2 and is a very easy keeper. He only raced twice and showed no promise as a race horse. Roy went to a few local shows over the summer and is quiet and well mannered at new places. He is the same horse no matter how much or how little you ride him. WTC auto lead changes and is jumping around small courses. He is easy and very suitable for an AA or a kid looking for their next mount. Super easy to ride and deal with.

Nona is a 3 yo (coming 4) unraced TB filly, by Micromanage or of Classic Profile, who is by English Channel. Showed no promise at the track in training so they decided it was time for a new career! This filly is lovely. We’ve had her almost 2 months now and she really hasn’t put a foot wrong. Starting to learn about carrying herself and accepting contact well. She also really enjoys her hacks! Lovely filly for someone to finish off. How far this filly has come and improved in such a short amount of time is remarkable. Nice kind disposition and has a very in your pocket personality. Lovely manners in the barn.
