       At Windchase, we always have an excellent selection of Event horses for sale, ranging from talented young prospects to successful experienced competition horses.  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 Event horses of all types, including Irish Sport Horses, American Thoroughbreds, Warmblood crosses, and imported Eventers. We also provide horses for dressage, hunter/jumper, foxhunting and pleasure riding. We generally have horses suitable for a wide range 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 usually 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, and quite a few have gone on to compete well at the three- and four-star levels. But just as much of a success story are the hundreds of former Windchase horses who have been excellent mounts for lower level competitors, amateurs and pleasure riders.
     If you have a horse you need to sell, we can help with that too; read about our Consignment program.
     I am a firm believer in giving young horses the right basics and correct training before pushing them in competition. All of our youngsters are carefully trained; they are never over-faced or pushed beyond what they are ready for.  We bring each horse along at the rate that is best for the individual. Even if they are green, 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.  Tell me what you are looking for in  a horse regarding age, size, type and experience level, and let me know your level of riding and price range; I will send you info on the horses that would be suitable. I will be happy to answer any questions about the horses you are interested in, and provide prices. I assure you that my horses are of top quality and honestly represented, and if you come see them you will not be disappointed.

      Please, serious inquiries only. We are happy to show horses to serious buyers, but we have a very busy schedule and cannot afford the time to accommodate people who are just checking out the market, those who have not yet figured out what they want, or those who need to sell their own horse before buying one. But if you are ready to find your new partner, make an appointment to come to Windchase and see our horses.
