Purchasing a new horse can feel overwhelming.

  • Do you have a horse you thought was "the one" who now spends its days in the field, riderless?

  • Are you frustrated with the hassle of the purchase process?
     

  • Are you ready for someone to just "get it done" already?

Don't waste your time struggling through the
purchase process alone!

The Matchmaking Process is Simple

 

I will talk with you about your riding style, goals, personality, and what you are looking for in a horse. Next, I will watch your riding videos, talk to your trainer (if you have one), and come up with a profile of what you need in a horse.

 

Using this profile, I will reach out to horse sellers and come up with a shortlist of matches for evaluation.

profile

what you need + what you want = your best options

Once we have your profile and shortlist, I will thoroughly evaluate each horse.  This includes phone calls and background research, medical record review, and in-person visits to evaluate the health and personality of the horse.

 

If the horse matches your profile, I will present it to you as a final candidate.

 

evaluate

research + legwork + intuition

= the best horses

I will go with you to meet the horses and give you feedback on how well you worked together.

 

Once you've found your match, I'll act as an intermediary with the seller. I'll negotiate the buying price and navigate the pre-purchase veterinary exam. You can be confident that the horse you take home is your
best match.

Your best horse is waiting for you!

she found her

I let Alice know just what I was looking for and to my delight, [she] found her...I've been riding for over 50 years, but reached an age where safety needed to be a priority... but I still wanted to have fun! Miss P. is a perfect mix of both and I look forward to many years and miles of trails, shows and everything in between.
