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

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
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.
If you have a horse you need to sell, we
can help with that too; read about our Consignment
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
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
