This blog has been created in an effort to help people sell their horse to a good home.

I will be creating pages (tabs across the top – click on the actual tab first, then any drop-down categories) to things like how to write an ad, the best way to photograph your horse; where and how to advertise – including links; how to find the best home, contracts, etc.  I will link (probably excessively) back to places I have found information.  What I would like is to be a “one stop shop” for people to find all the information they may need… I see it is everywhere but nowhere in particular.  So welcome to my effort.

If you have found this blog while searching for the best way to sell your horse to a good home – kudos to you!  If you came here to help, thank you very much!  If you have suggestions for pages, or content you believe should be included, please email me at rehomeyourhorse(@)hotmail(.)com

You will notice that there is information on the horse slaughter industry.  See why here.

Suggestions on How to Use This Site

Might I suggest you use this site in the following way; find the topic along the top row of the chart, then view each page in order beneath the topic.  This will help you go through the process step-by-step.

You can also go through them via the tabs at the top of the blog.

    What A Great Idea!
    The Photographing your horse for an ad information is so helpful. So Many Tips and Tricks I will have to Try!

    So Much Information that needs to be put in an ad. If people did this it would be easier for my friends to find the horse of Their Dreams

    Great info and I am thrilled to have found you! I even stole one of your quotes for facebook about slaughter:)

    “In reality, every owner is responsible for their OWN horse. I say it over and over again; if you’ve used a horse up, used it for profit or work, or got enjoyment out of it in any way – you are responsible to either find it a new suitable home, or humanely euthanize it. It is time to take responsibility for the animals we bring into our lives as owners, and into the world as breeders.” Anonymous

    LOVE IT!!!

      Please add a link back to here – share the info. Anything that helps a horse find a good home, I’m all for. So many people don’t have a clue about horse slaughter.

      Sorry for the delay. I’ve been away from the computer for a few weeks.
      Thanks for the note. As I’ve said, I created this blog in hopes anyone searching for ways to sell their horse to a good home finds it. Feel free to pass the information along!
