Rivendell Farm occasionally has horses for sale that we have trained. We start our own horses with basic ground work that includes "in hand" training and lunging. Most of our horse are also trained to free jump in a jumping lane.
We can also help with the sale of your horse or the purchase of a horse. Linda's experience with many different types of horses and riders will make it more likely that you will find a horse that suits your needs and ability. Our contacts both here in the Blue Grass region, nationally, and in Europe can help locate a high quality horse at a fair price.
All conditions of a sale are fully disclosed to buyer and seller, and we generally do not receive commisions on the horses we sell or purchase for a client. This keeps costs down for both buyer and seller.
