       At Windchase, we always have an excellent selection of Event horses for sale, ranging from talented young prospects to successful experienced Eventing horses.  We believe in training all horses correctly and carefully, to maximize their abilities and confidence.  Our horses are always represented honestly; it is very important to us to help the rider find the right horse, and we make every effort to help ensure a suitable match that will result in a successful partnership. 

     Windchase specializes in Irish Sport Horses, American Thoroughbreds, Warmblood crosses, and imported Eventers.  We generally have horses suitable for all different levels of riders, and in a variety of price ranges.  Check out the horses on this page, but if you don't see what you are looking for, contact me anyway;  I always have some new arrivals or promising youngsters that aren't yet listed on the website.  If I don't have the right horse for you, I can also help you locate suitable horses with some of my colleagues.  Located in Virginia in the heart of USEA Area II, we are convenient to the mid-Atlantic region.

     Many highly successful competition horses have come from Windchase.  Some of the horses we have sold who have gone on to have success at Eventing or Showing include Enniskerry Imp, Expedience, Just Fun Stuff, Quinn Himself, Polar Storm, Mizar, Cahir, Viatar, Fantasy Impromptu, Wellfleet, Draco, Sirius, Invictus, Arrow, No Tomorrow, Daybreak, Saxony, Quiet Achiever, Morning Star, Cyrillic, and Play Zone - and that is just to name a few.  But just as much of a success story are the hundreds of former Windchase horses who have been excellent mounts for lower level competitors and pleasure riders.

     I am a firm believer in giving young horses the right basics and correct training before beginning competition. All of our youngsters are carefully trained; they are never overfaced or pushed beyond what they are ready for.  We bring each horse along at the rate that is best for them as an individual.  Some of them may be green, but everything that has been done with them has been done the right way, so that they have not lost confidence or developed bad habits.  I find this makes an enormous difference in helping the horse reach its full potential.

     I have a number of really nice horses in a variety of price ranges, some of which are not yet listed on the website.  Let me know what your riding experience is, what your goals are, what price range you are in, and what you are looking for regarding age, size, and experience level, and I will send you info on the horses that would be suitable.  Sorry, we don't do videos, as I feel they are a poor way to judge a horse.  I assure you that my horses are of top quality and honestly represented, and if you come see them you will not be disappointed.
     Contact me for more information about our horses.  I will be happy to answer any questions about the horses you are interested in, and provide prices, and more photos if available.
