I love to ride, more than anything. I enjoy training the young horses (once they are far enough along that I trust they won't buck me off), and I love to hack out around the farm, just appreciating being on the back of a good horse riding through the beautiful countryside.  Seeing as how I have too many metal bits in my body and don't bounce as well as I used to, I don't compete any more, but I take great delight in participating in the training of the competition horses. 
     We are very fortunate to have Cindy Anderson-Blank as a trainer and rider to take over the reins in competing the Windchase horses. She is talented and dedicated, and I am happy and proud to have her ride and compete the Windchase horses.

     Windchase Eventing always has 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. We specialize in Event horses and prospects, and 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. If you don't see what you are looking for here, contact me anyway; I often have new arrivals or promising youngsters that aren't yet listed on the website. Contact me to get more info and current prices.    
     If you have a horse you need to sell, we can help with that too; we have clients looking at horses on a daily basis and can help your horse find its next owner. Read about our Horse 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 each horse reach its full potential.
        Please, serious inquiries only. We are happy to show horses to serious buyers; if you are ready to find your new partner, make an appointment to come to Windchase and see our horses.  You will not be disappointed! 

                                  Money can't buy Happiness, but it can buy Horses, which is pretty much the same thing!
