I know H&H is probably the best place, but £145 for 2weeks seems a bit steep!! Has anyone else had good experiences with other sites at all? Or is H&H the way to go?

When looking I always look at the obvious sights ie Horsequest, Horsemart and H&H plus local papers. I would have thought your best bet would be Horsequest as I always think of it as quality horses and you can add loads of photos and wording etc. However, having not sold a horse for a while I'm probably not the best to ask !!

Can I ask what you are thinking of as an asking price for him as my loan horse is going back to his owners soon and they will be selling him - he is a similar type to Goddy in that he is very capable in all phases, especially dressage but probably Pre-Novice/Discovery is his limit (mentally). A cracking all round horse though thats always in the ribbons unaffiliated etc.

When sold one last year I think it was either horsequest or horsedeals that got the most responses. Had one advertised about a month ago on horsemart and horsedeals and it was horsemart that brought in the most responses.

I always look on Horsequest as it has show horses (really useful for you) and Horsemart as I can search by Cleveland Bay (again just what you want

) Buck was found for me on Horsemart.

Personally find Horse and Hound too restrictive in their searches ie can't search by breed!!!! or discipline

Members can put up a horse classified on BD for 2 weeks for £10.....

Agree with those who have suggested HorseQuest, but also think Horsemart would be worth a look. I think it is much improved since the re-vamp of the site.

I find horsemart good for the cheaper horses, not so good for Goddy priced ones.

Personally the main sites I would look on for a horse of his type would be Horsequest and H&H. I haven't sold many but the ones I have sold have always been through H&H, having been on horsequest and horsemart for a fortnight before splashing out on H&H.

Horsequest , when looking for horses I far prefer .. its also has no detailed search facility so people are 'forced' to scroll past your ad ! Which is great for a horse like Goddy who is eyecatching

Thanks!

They have done it again, lovely little show up near Leeds

Have inhand classes for CB's , fine happy that there is not a class for geldings as no one else has gelding classes, then there is a ridden class, again happy however the sash and turnout prize of £50 is only judged on the inhand classes so again geldings excluded from a chance to win - bitter? yes I am!

Depends where you are IMO. I had absolutely no interest at all from Horse Deals but thats probably because Im in NE Scotland which seems to put off a lot of people! I also know of people locally who've advertised in H&H to no avail.

Everyone here always seems to recommend Horse Quest but I just HATE the website!! It looks terrible! Gives me a headache just looking at it, hence why Ive never advertisied there!

When I was selling my old eventer I put him on horsequest and horseselect. I had umpteen calls from horsequest, they seem to be the best other than h&h. Horsequest will put your advert not only under eventing but other categories too.

Best of luck hun.xx

I always look on horseselect and horsequest. I think cheaper horses for Horsemart and horsedeals. tbh never look on h and h website for things for sale it is easier to go through magazine but i think it is quite expensive.
