Where To Find Horseboxes For Sale - 23rd June 2014

If you’re looking for a horsebox for sale, then you should take a look at the Horse Exchange. The site was originally set up by Emma Higgin to help those who wanted horses to find the right ones. She found that she was spending a lot of her time helping friends of friends to get in touch with other friends of friends, because she knew that they had a suitable horse for sale. Setting up the website seemed a logical extension of that service. And it makes a lot of sense that the site doesn’t just contain ads for horses, but also for horsey equipment such as horseboxes.

Horseboxes, and horse trailers, are essential equipment if you want to transport horses around the country. Horseboxes are generally all-in-one vehicles, with a driving cab, and often accommodation, while horse trailers are towed behind a car or other vehicle. However, the term ‘horsebox’ is generally used for both, especially in casual use. And the Horse Exchange has plenty of ads for horseboxes, with detailed descriptions so that you can see straight away whether each one is suitable for you, and not waste any time on unsuitable equipment.

How To Sell Your Horse - 9th June 2014

Selling your horse is not necessarily easy. With a bit of luck, someone you know will want a horse, and yours will be suitable. Alternatively, there may be a friend of a friend in the market for a good horse. But life doesn’t necessarily work like that. Instead, you may wish to turn to the Horse Exchange.

Emma Higgin set up the Horse Exchange as a way of formalising all the informal ‘putting people in touch with other people’ work that she was doing to help friends and acquaintances to buy and sell horses. When you have a horse to sell, you need to fill in a form, with details about the horse. It’s a bit more detailed than other sites may require, but should take you no more than about ten minutes. Emma suggests that the extra time is worth it to ensure that only people who are really interested get in touch with you about the horse. And it also makes sure that only those who are genuinely interested in finding the right new home for their horse fill in the form. Anyone trying to sell an unreliable horse will have to go elsewhere!

 What is The Horse Exchange? - 26th May 2014

So, you’re asking about The Horse Exchange. You must have heard of it on the grapevine! Which is interesting, because the Horse Exchange is basically a grapevine for buying and selling horses and horsey equipment. Emma Higgin has spent most of her life with horses, riding, training, and of course buying and selling. She found herself spending lots of time being asked for advice about where people could find a good horse, and could often recommend one that she had heard about from ‘a friend of a friend’. She decided to formalise the whole arrangement. Instead of hoping that people would ask her, she set up the Horse Exchange’s website,, with the help of her husband Nick.

People with a horse to sell are asked to spend a bit of time filling in the online form giving information about their horse. Emma believes that more information is much more helpful to buyers, and it also helps weed out those who just want to sell quickly, without worrying about whether the horse is right for the buyer, or the buyer for the horse.

Horse Trailers For Sale - 12th May 2014

If you’ve got a horse or pony, and you’re finding that you need to transport it more and more, perhaps to shows or events, or even just to the vet from time to time, it may be time to invest in a horse box or horse trailer. If you’re not sure of the difference, horse boxes have an integrated cab, and horse trailers hitch onto the back of a car. And when you’re planning to tow a horse trailer, do make sure that your car will be able to do that, as some of the bigger trailers need a 4x4, or even a van to tow them.

Buying a horse trailer, or indeed other horse products, is always going to be easier with a reliable source. Emma Higgin set up the Horse Exchange as a way of matching potential owners with horses for sale: in a way, she’s extended her personal network of friends and acquaintances to the internet. By requiring detailed information from sellers, she’s able to ensure that horses are good quality. The Horse Exchange also includes advertisements for horse products, such as horse boxes and horse trailers.

Buying Horses Online - 9th May 2014

Are you thinking of buying a horse? Emma Higgin has been putting potential buyers of horses in touch with potential sellers for many years. She has long reckoned that using the grapevine is the best way of finding a suitable horse to buy, and has now extended that idea to enable potential buyers and sellers to use the internet. The Horse Exchange is a way of matching potential buyers with suitable horses. Advertising on the website is free, but sellers do have to spend about 10 minutes providing detailed information about the horse. As a potential buyer, that means that you’ll find lots of information about each horse, so you can see whether it’s going to be suitable for you.

Emma is absolutely clear that the site is not designed as a way to shift horses that are difficult to sell, and monitors it to make sure that nobody’s doing this. Instead, she sees it as a way to broaden the grapevine beyond just the people you know. And as a buyer, you’ll need to be prepared for the seller to ask you some searching questions to make sure that you’ll be a suitable owner, and that you’ll benefit from having the horse.

Horses For Sale - 2nd March 2014

Buying a horse is no different to buying any other high value item from someone you don't know. It's always best to follow some standard best practices when dealing with the purchase! It's important that you do a thorough check on the horse before handing over any money so, to help you along, we've produced a few tips for when you go to view any horses for sale. Take a look at our quick tips:
The Horse – Does the horse look tired, low on energy and generally lethargic? If so, it's possible that the owner has sedated the horse before you arrived as a way of hiding any off-putting behaviour.

Environment – Where is the horse kept? If you visit the horse at the owner’s stables (as you should be doing), then what is the general upkeep and cleanliness of the property like? How well the house is kept will give you an idea of how well the horses have been treated too.

Instinct – Last of all, what does your gut tell you? You will have subconsciously picked up on countless little things during the meeting and will have formed an overall feeling about both the horse and its owner – don't ignore it!

Horse Trailers for Sale - 9th February 2014

If you own a horse or are considering buying a horse, you will soon realise that it can quickly become very expensive once you start buying all the equipment you're going to require.

One way to reduce your costs is to buy the equipment you need second hand and by doing this, you could be saving yourself a small fortune over the lifetime of your horse.

Advertise Horse Sales - 12th January 2014

Whether you have a horse you'd like to sell or you're looking for a horse to buy, in order to give yourself the best chance of doing so you'll need to find somewhere which can advertise horse sales to a large enough audience. You might have the best horse in the world but if no-one sees your advertisement, no-one is going to buy it!

The Horse Exchange was set up to cater to all equine-related classifieds including horses, stallions, ponies, equine equipment and horse boxes. By allowing users to place a free advert, The Horse Exchange will ensure that sellers will be able to advertise their horse in a totally risk-free way and with over 60,000 unique visitors a month, you can be sure to find the perfect home for your horse.

If you’re looking for young ponies for sale, whether you want a show-jumper, first pony, pony club pony or a specific breed such as a Shetland, there are a few tips you should follow.

1. First pony? Buy trained

If you are an inexperienced owner then it’s essential to buy a trained pony. You may be tempted to find a young pony, but this could be a mistake. An older trained pony is likely to be calmer and easy to manage.

2. Ask lots of questions

Don’t buy the first pony you come across. Instead view numerous ponies and ask the owners plenty of questions. Ask about the pony’s temperament and background, and ensure you ride the pony or see it being ridden.

3. Never offer money upfront

Never put down a deposit on a pony before seeing it. This could be a costly mistake if you change your mind, and could potentially be a scam.

Viewing numerous horse ads online will help you to find young ponies for sale in your area. The Horse Exchange is an equine website that has countless listings of ponies and horses for sale -
