    Horsemart is not just the no.1 marketplace for horses for sale, we also think it's important to share advice from horse experts and top riders. That's why we've created a hub of equine information and useful guides to fill your brain with. We have the most current, fulfilling content to share with you including how to ride, what to wear, how to groom and what to name your horse. Plus our breed guides can tell you everything you need to know about your favourite breed! 

    Everything featured is a collection of expert knowledge and personal experiences, so that we can bring the equine community together in one place. So take a look at what we have to offer, because we don't think you'll find a more complete horse bible anywhere else!

    The yard where I kept my first horse, had a sign hanging up in the tack room, saying “The hardest thing to see is what is in front of your eyes.” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Maybe they were just warning you to look, before yelling out that you couldn’t find your girth, but that quote has always stuck with me.  When you see something every day, you stop seeing it. ...

Flying changes are an important part of both dressage and show jumping, for dressage they come into play at advanced medium level and for jumping they can be used at any level. In the flying change the horse remains in canter but changes the canter lead during the moment of suspension, when all four feet are off the ground. This c...
