    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!

    Deciding whether or not to clip your horse will depend on what you are planning to do with your horse during the winter months. If you have a youngster or an older horse that is unlikely to be worked during this time, then leave him with his natural coat.
