Horses for Sale: buying, leasing, & selling

Sales Support - Buying or Selling

Buying:  SaddleBack Equestrian can help find your next dream horse whether a seasoned show horse, an up and coming prospect, or pleasure horse. Their expertise and network of trainers, equine facilities, and social media can help help "weed out" the multitude of possibilities on online sites. This saves time and expense of travel and trying horses by narrowing down options to those on the market that best fit the rider's needs. SaddleBack can also arrange the pre-purchase examination, shipping if needed, and more.

Leasing: Sometimes leasing can be a better option than buying for riders' current situation. Leasing has advantages for many riders--especially show riders looking to move up, riders about to graduate and head off to college, and more. SaddleBack Equestrian has a large network of top lease horses and contacts across the nation, as well as expertise in leases--including contracts, PPE, insurance, etc.   

Sales support: If you prefer not to deal with the hassle of advertising, filtering between window shoppers vs serious buyers, spending time answering numerous questions, and meeting with potential buyers, then SaddleBack can handle all that for you! They can provide quality marketing and exposure to a network of other trainers, equine facilities, and potential buyers seeking horses. This includes their professional equine industry network, social media, and other marketing efforts that an individual seller may not be able to provide. 

When you find yourself in the need of assistance in buying or selling your horse, give SaddleBack a call to discuss how they can help.

SOLD "RBR Bunrageous"

10 yr old Auto Lead Change, No-Stop 2' - 3' Hunter or Pony Jumper

FOR SALE -- Sadly Outgrown!  Romeo is a 14.1hh registered POA (Pony of the America) 10 yr old gelding.  Registered RBR Bunrageous with impressive breeding, he was foaled 5/24/2006 with a history of POA showing before turning hunter/jumper in late 2015. Won Champion in 11/2015 showing 2'6 at his 1st hunter show.  Bombproof with no spook or buck & a great babysitter for trails, lounging, etc.  In the show ring:  very nice mover with AUTO LEAD CHANGE (even for very beginner). Jumps anything-- NEVER STOPS. Loves to jump and while currently jumping 2'3-2'9 he's easily jumped 3'3+ and would make an excellent pony jumper.  He is quiet over smaller jumps & crossbars but does tend to build over higher jumps.  Likes to go forward (not a push ride) but also has an excellent whoa!  His ideal job, if not in POA breed shows, would be for a more advanced beginner/intermediate hunter rider or a super-fun higher level pony jumper for a confident (even young) amateur. Super honest--never stops or runs out, auto lead change, can turn on a time and a true gentlemen on the ground. A kind soul with impeccable ground manners. Loads, clips, trims (great feet--barefoot), hauls in to new places, etc. all great! UTD on Coggins, Vacs, Teeth, etc (not due for anything until late 3/2016).  Can live outside or in stall (currently stalled w/daily 8hr turnout) & gets along w/all horses. Priced to sell quickly at $5,000 (somewhat negotiable to an amazing home).  Call: (918) 408-6446 or EM: for more info.

SOLD "Expect Freedom"

8 yr old Auto Lead Change, 15.3 hh Thoroughbred Jumper/Eventer Prospect


Expect Freedom "Josie" is lovely, little TB mare with a huge personality. She craves attention and has quickly become a barn favorite. She is great on the ground, UTD on everything just needs a job. I bought her as a project but unfortunately do not have the time for her. She needs a home where she will be in a program. She is brave to fences, has an AUTO lead change but will definitely need an experience rider. Good home is a must. No health issues or vices.

Bombproof, Crossbar-2' Lesson Horse Mare

Reeses Pieces (aka Reeses) is a sorrel roan Appaloosa, registered "Margarita Scotch" with the Appaloosa Horse Club, 15’3 hh, foaled 5/9/92. She’s been a top lesson horse at SaddleBack Equestrian for past 2 ½ years.  Taught many youngsters & adults how to ride, learn to canter & jump as well as been a favorite at summer camps. Never a spook, buck or bolt. Truly bombproof!! Done everything from breed shows, dressage, hunter jumper shows, parades, drill team & more. Anyone can ride her--kid-safe & “husband-safe.”  Same horse whether ridden daily or lots of time off. No prep, lunging ever!  When we purchased her she’d been in a sweet family’s backyard & hadn’t been ridden in a few months. Came to SaddleBack & started teaching beginner lessons the very next day.  Healthy, sound & up-to-date on everything (Coggins, Annuals Vacs, teeth, etc all done late March; dewormed last 7/1/16). Barefoot & great feet (feet trimmed last 7/21/16). No health issues we know of & none since we’ve owned her.  She’s in shape, so a young 24. Not mare-ish. Only selling so she can work less as she’s getting older, but she’s not ready to retire, has years left and likes to work.  Loads, clips, everything great. A true babysitter both on the ground and on her back.  Approved home only!
