There are so many professionals involved in the selling of horses. The starting point should be to decide what kind of horse you want. Consideration should include whether you can afford to buy and keep a horse. Moreover, whether you have the time and dedication necessary to own a horse. This decision is far more challenging than investing in a dog or cat and will have to take in many considerations.
But let us assume that you have decided to take the plunge and own a horse. You have calculated you have the spare time, dedication and resources necessary for ownership; so where does one start?
At Horse Scout there is a “marketplace” where you can choose your horse. Here you will see horses for sale, where you’ll discover the one you really want; ponies for sale and stallions available to stud.
Within each section, there are a number of details about the horse, pony or stud. These include photos, current location and some passport details. Although the information is not limited to just that.
This is where you can choose the equine you want to share the next phase of your life with. Horse Scout then offers a number of great professionals involved in the industry of equine ownership. Under the banner of “professional services” you can find pros who will keep the ownership of your horse or pony running smoothly:
- Industry Services like vets, farriers, physiotherapists and transporters are all needed during the lifetime of your horse.
- What about professional competition riders? You may have a horse that can show jump or race and you will need a great rider under this banner.
- All horses need to be trained and instructed, otherwise they can simply become wild and uncontrollable. Horse Scout offers a range of professionals to instruct, coach or train your horse at a fairly easily affordable rate.
