About Us and Terms of Use



What Do We Do?

Dream Horse Classifieds is an online horse marketplace catering to horse buyers, sellers, and breeders. DreamHorse features a fully-automated, searchable database system. From our DreamHorse Classifieds Search Center, you can use our flexible advanced search or search for a horse by name, bloodline, or ID number, or you can simply browse by state and/or breed. These flexible search options help you narrow the list so you can find the horse of your dreams! Photo Ads will have a small preview version (thumbnail) of the horse's photo near them so they are easy to spot. We also invite you to visit our special site for tack, horse trailers, horse property, horse-related services, pickups and tow vehicles, dogs, and equipment called TackTrader.com.

Who Are We?

DreamHorse was created in 1998 out of our own passion for horses and is still owned and operated by the original founding (horse-crazy) family.

While DreamHorse cannot give legal advice, we do have some general recommendations for buying and selling horses:

DreamHorse strongly recommends that a Vet-Check or Pre-Purchase Exam should ALWAYS be performed on any horse being considered for purchase by the buyer's Equine Veterinarian of choice.

Always be sure to specifically ask the seller if the horse has any soundness issues, vices, or other problems.

You should never complete a transaction without first writing down the terms of the deal and have each party sign it. If you can't afford a lawyer to draft up a contract, you still should write down the terms of the deal in plain English and get it signed. Any buyer or seller that is hesitant or resists is usually a sure sign of a potential problem.

Always PRINT and KEEP a copy of any ad used to buy or sell a horse on our site. WE DO NOT KEEP ANY KIND OF ARCHIVE OF DELETED OR EXPIRED ADS.

Please read our Fraud Alert Warning which is sent out as a link on every ad response that is generated by DreamHorse.com and TackTrader.com.
