I don’t know about you, but I bought most my horses from online ads, almost all my tack online, I’ve bought supplements online, sold horses online, etc. So, where are the best places to buy or sell? Here are my favorites. Feel free to add your own!
To buy/sell horses:
To buy supplements/tack:
http://www.smartpakequine.com/ They are the place that will sell you supplements in great little packets, all separated out in the right amount for your horse. SO awesome. Perfect for owners that board, when you go on vacation, or if you just want to have the ease of use. They ALSO have a flat rate of $7.95 shipping no matter what you order. Saddles, supplements, everything is included in that flat rate. They are great to work with; great customer service, return service, etc.
http://www.ebay.com/ You can sometimes find a bargain here. You need to know what you’re looking for and make sure you read the ad well and know what your options are if you don’t get what you thought you were buying. I’ve had some great experiences buying there, and some not as great ones. Make sure you pick a buyer with very high feedback percentage and you’re most likely to be okay.
http://www.doversaddlery.com/ I always shop for sales here,
http://www.statelinetack.com/ And here.
http://www.horse.com/ Usually the cheapest on stuff, whether it’s supplements or equipment. They are good about returns if you don’t get what you were expecting. I love them! And they are very wallet-friendly. I buy my de-wormer through them.
