    Why you should buy a horse from the Colorado Natural Horsemanship Center

    We believe that when we sell a horse that we have an obligation, to the best of our ability, to fairly represent the abilities and temperaments of the horses we sell. If we do not have a horse we believe is suitable for the potential purchaser we'll help find a horse appropriate for the buyers needs. We simply won't knowingly sell them an unsuitable horse. As well, we do not knowingly sell horses where they will be trained with methods using fear and intimidation as opposed to respect, communication and trust.

    Tips for Buying a Horse for Different Ability Levels

    Horses for Beginner Riders
    Horses for Intermediate Riders
    Horses for Advanced Riders

    The foundation of our business in selling horses is in repeat sales and referrals from people who have bought horses from us before. We use the same basics with our customers that we use with horses: respect, trust, communication and integrity. The simple truth is, if you don’t trust the person selling you a horse, you shouldn’t be buying a horse from him or her anyway.

    When you buy a horse from us we will do our best to make sure you have the knowledge to care for and enjoy horses for many years. If you are a first time horse owner we will give you a clinic lasting several hours covering "The Nature of the Beast", how horses evolved, why they do the things they do and the basics of communicating with them in a language they understand. We will also cover safety, first for you, then for your horse. We give you information about their nutritional, health and social needs. You are welcome to contact us regarding any additional information you might need for as long as you own the horse. This is not, however, a lifetime guarantee of the soundness of the horse or an open line for an unlimited number of training questions. It is our commitment to you that we will help you gain the information you needs to successfully care for and ride your new horse. We can also help you find appropriate tack for the kind of riding you intend to pursue.

    It is important to remember that there is no such thing as a perfectly safe horse and anyone who represents a horse as being that way is not to be trusted!

    It is your responsibility to learn to be around horses in a way that is safe for you and safe for your horse and any other horses around you.

    Horses Are Prey Animals - their first concern is their own safety and their primary defense mechanism is to use their feet to run or kick. Some horses are calmer than others. Generally, an older horse with more experience is less likely to shy away from new experiences than a young horse.

    So long as the horse is sound and reasonably suited to the kind of riding you intend to do,
    PERSONALITY IS EVERYTHING!

    Young or green horses will lead, allow their feet to be picked up and will load in a trailer. Depending on their age they may have been ridden and may have varying degrees of experience and will be desensitized to differing levels. Ask about the capabilities of individual horses for sale on our web site.
