How to get the most out of your Horse & Hound account

Welcome to the Horse & Hound Classified Site – the home of quality horses for over 135 years.

Whether you are casually browsing the horse market or have specific requirements for your next horse, we can help you on your journey. Don’t forget we also have adverts for horseboxes, equestrian jobs and equestrian properties too.

Our easy to use site has been optimised to make searching for your new horse as simple as possible.

We have put together the below helpful information about some of the key features of our website to ensure you make the most of your Horse & Hound account;

How to use advanced search

We know that searching for a horse can be challenging so we have made our advanced search function practical and easy to use. Results are based on the adverts that are currently on the site, so if we don’t have something that matches your specific requirements try widening your search.

  2. Click Advanced Search where more search options will appear
  3. Select your criteria. In Advanced Search you can select more than one type, breed, gender and choose your height and price parameters

We may not always have horses that match your requirements but set up a Search Alert Email and we will notify you as soon as a matching advert is added to the site.

Once your search is over you can simply turn off email alerts from within your H&H account or by using the link within the email.
