Get Social! Share your Ad!

March 4, 2016

Here at, we're always keeping up with buying and selling trends for quality hunter/jumper sale horses. Right now selling via Facebook groups and sharing via social media is hot, but as anyone who has used these groups and social sites can attest, they can be effective, if a bit chaotic, cluttered and clunky to use. Sometimes shared listings don't have price info, location or other key descriptive items. For sellers, presenting a horse for sale may require a lot of copy/pasting and repetitive action to share across multiple groups, and social media doesn't often allow for showing all of your horse's photos and videos in one place.

That's where we can help! Let us help you promote your horse on social media! Our ads are optimized for sharing on a variety of websites and social media platforms and allow other social media users to learn everything about your horse in one place with just one click to your ad.

Plus, not only are our ads posted automatically to our Facebook group and Twitter, but we also post selected listings on our Instagram account. Us sharing your horse's information on our social media pages is only one avenue of action - and you can take it to the next level!

Each ad is optimized for social media sharing. After you've posted your ad, simply visit its page and scroll to the bottom. There you will see five share buttons:

Clicking the "Like" button will open a popup window and ask you to login to Facebook if you haven't already. Once you're logged in, you'll see your ad photo and/or text for your ad (your primary photo will automatically be posted with the ad - some browsers show this photo during the share process, others don't show it until you've actually shared it to FB). Now you just need to decide where to share it - on your timeline, your business page, or a group:


Once you've posted your ad to Facebook, your friends and other connections will receive a notification and see it. The shared image and link go directly back to your ad. Now with one click, they can see all of your horse's sale information, photos and videos. We're the ultimate and perfect organization tool for your hunter/jumper sales horses and ponies - whether it's your short stirrup pony or a grand prix jumper, working hunter and everything in between.

The other social media buttons work similarly:

Share - allows you to share on other platforms, Facebook and beyond.

Pin - share to a Pinterest board

Tweet - get that ad posted to Twitter

Email - send directly to your email list, sales list or friends


It's straightforward, organized and simple and helps cut through the clutter and chaos of the social media world - and we're here to help you every step of the way. As always if you need assistance, feel free to contact us with questions.

Happy (social) selling!

Sixteen Years!

Feb. 22, 2015

Happy Anniversary to us! Today marks our sixteenth year of bringing you quality hunter/jumper horses and ponies for sale. Did you know that only days after starting the website in February 1999 we posted our first ad - for a horse named "Gratis" submitted by a friend and now-successful hunter/jumper trainer in Massachusetts, Cory Hardy. Imagine that! And the ads kept coming, day after day, month after month, and year after year. Even when we were more focused on our bloggy-style content (old timers, you remember e-interviews, the Pony Zone, and Show Shots?) the horses and ponies for sale pages were always hopping with new ads.

Sixteen years in, we're still always thrilled when we see a new horse or pony listed on the website, whether it's a fancy junior/amateur hunter, a trooper short-stirrup pony, a seasoned equitation horse, a pony hunter champion, or a young prospect with an explosive jump. We love bringing this service to you, and thank you for making this website what it is - we've always had the best, most loyal customers and visitors. We hope you'll continue to make it the best place on the internet to list your quality show horses and ponies for many more years to come.
