What you need to sell your horse:

1. Make Horse Showroom Ready –

Clean him up so that the potential buyers see him at his best.

2. Take Great Photos –

Getting a standout photo is top priority when marketing a horse. You have a moment to capture someone’s attention. Do it with photos that show that horse’s ‘spark.’

Photos need to show your horse’s conformation and build.  Three photos you need: An attractive and expressive headshot, with the horse’s ears up and looking alert; side body conformation shot and a movement photo – working, loping, troting.

3. Get an Impressive Video –

A photo can capture a potential buyer’s attention. But a video can show off the horse’s gaits and training. A video frequently will help you seal the deal.

4. Write a Concise and Accurate Description of the Horse –

A great photo WILL catch a buyer’s attention. The video takes the interest a step further.  Complete the picture with an honest assessment of the horse.   Make sure to include, his breeding, personality, training, show record and potential.
