Helpful Hints - Marketing Your Miniature Horse

By Karen Rudolph – www.minihorsesales.com 

  • Be a cheerleader! Does your horse have a winning show record? An awesome temperament? Is he a PROVEN producer? Does he/she have a CHAMPION pedigree (close-up, as in champion SIRE, DAM, grand sire, grand dam or champion siblings) – those are all worth bragging rights. Just be sure you have proof to back it up (If you are selling, OR buying a lot, subscriptions to AMHA & AMHR Studbooks are extremely valuable. Even if the horse won the aforementioned awards before you owned him, his winning show record belongs to the HORSE and you can use it to promote his sale.
  • Be realistic. You can’t be “barn blind” when selling horses. Pedigree is important, but it is not the “end all” – your horse needs to stand on their own merits. A “great great grandson” of some famous stallion is NOT enough to justify a huge price tag.
  • Be Professional.  Always.  Selling can be frustrating – people can be frustrating. Don’t be offended by offers, A lower offer from someone who will show and promote your horse/breeding may be worth considering (and remember you can always counter offer) and don’t get frustrated by emails from “kids” – they are the future & CAN be prospective buyers.
  • Be thorough - PHOTOS are what FIRST attract buyers – ONLY post ones that flatter your horse. I’m a big fan of nice pro photos. They will draw the potential buyers in and get them interested in finding out more about your horse – BUT also have available OTHER non-pro photos ready.  Foreign buyers, especially, want to see GOOD photos of your horse - left & right side, front and back, and bite. When you take these photos, be sure you are level with your horse, NOT looking down, as that distorts the horse’s proportions. MOST people cannot see through 2 inches of hair (myself included) so if you cannot provide photos of your horse clipped, consider holding off on selling until you can – OR be prepared to take LESS money for your horse. A VIDEO is also extremely important for any horse – ESPECIALLY one that is selling as a driving horse.
  • Be patient. Some horses sell fast and others may not, but don’t sound desperate or you may scare off potential buyers.  Then refer to #1 – are you being realistic on your selling price?
  • Be honest. This should probably be #1 on the list. Don’t make outrageous claims that are false (“unbeatable in the show ring” for a horse that has never been shown; “perfect conformation” for a horse that has many visual flaws) If your horse has issues that may affect the sale, don’t “forget” to disclose them (locking stifles, retained testicle etc.)
  • Be responsive. REPLY to requests and questions! Sounds simple – but it’s hard to keep up sometimes. Check your “spam” folder (or “other” mailbox if you are posting on Facebook) I run an active sales site for Miniature Horses and get messages EVERY day from people – telling me they messaged the owner of horses for sale on the site with no response. Hard to sell a horse that way.
  • Be prepared. HAVE those good “pasture” photos & bite photos handy! Want to really be on top of the game? – how about a VIDEO of the horse being measured, so buyers know your facts are accurate. Be prepared to answer lots of questions – the higher the selling price, the more questions the buyer is apt to have. There are LOTS of nice horses on the market today. If you want to sell YOURS, be prepared to work for the sale.
  • Be grammatically correct. Use spell-check to check spelling before you post your ad AND then DOUBLE CHECK spelling. Your horse should have correct CONFORMATION, not conFIRMation.  You need to SELL your horse, not SALE your horse. It’s a good idea to let someone proofread your work before it is posted. YOU know what it is supposed to say, so you may be skimming over errors in the text (I’m REALLY good at that!)
  • Be positive. If you horse is priced right, sound, sane & as advertised, with flattering photos and a clear, factual description, he/she WILL sell.

I highly recommend Karen Rudolph's website www.minihorsesales.com and her Facebook page as well.  What a great service to the miniature horse industry; such quality horses listed on this site.  I purchased 2B Patsy's Tribute To Gina after seeing her on the website, and couldn't be happier!  A great place to connect buyers and sellers!

   Terri Rogers, Riverview Stable, TN

We couldn't be happier with our gelding, Dom!!!! Thank you Karen, we wouldn't have known about him if it hadn't been for Mini Horse Sales.  (via Facebook)

        Linda Cameron-Davis, Pippin Hill Farm, Maine

I highly recommend Minihorsesales.com and Karen Rudolph. I sent her my horses to list and they were up and viewable on her website quickly. Karen has many contacts and ways to advertise, so your horse will be marketed in every possible way. Karen is very easy to work with and she takes the time to cover every detail about your horse, and will bend over backward to accommodate you and your listing. We have been connected with many perspective buyers through Minihorsesales.com. Anyone who is looking to get exposure for their sale horses NEEDS to contact Karen...... You won't be disappointed!

Karen is a wonderful, enthusiastic horsewoman who brings her energy and dedication to promoting the miniature horse. She not only lists horses for sale, she promotes them and works very hard to connect folks with the right horse for them. She was invaluable in the sale of my colt, Brookhavens Knight Dreams, and because of that I will continue to support her and rely on her to help me connect with future potential buyers.

Merry Black - Brookhaven Miniatures, Summerfield, NC 

 A very special thank you to Karen Rudolph for her help in selling my colt Aloha Acres A Silent Partnership. I am amazed how fast her response was to me when I asked for her help. Not only did he sell within a very short time but Karen's professional help with dealing with prospective buyers was simply amazing. Can't say enough good things about her.

Connie B Heath - NC  

If you are looking for someone professional and genuine to help you sell some horses, Karen is it! My dad and I have done a lot of local advertising as well as on Lil Beginnings with no luck. Karen offered to help us, and help us she did! We have recently just sold a yearling filly with Karen's help. Not only does she write up a really well written ad, but she helps find a good match for your horse! I will continue to use Karen to help me sell horses in the future.

Megan Herrick - South Frontage Miniatures - CT

I am thrilled that I was able to purchase a beautiful Show Halter and absolutely flipped out when I found such a stunning little filly for sale; exactly what I was looking for. Startling to find out that the seller was located only 20 miles from where I live. (We both live in FL). I hope others will be as lucky as I was when they utilize your website. Regards,

Carolyn Dunaway - Auburndale, Florida

~ A Little More Info ~

I'm Karen Rudolph, and I've been selling horses on my farm website (frosthillfarmminiatures.com) for quite some time. Since it had become so successful for me I decided to branch out and have a website exclusively for marketing nice quality miniature horses.

The cost to list is $50.00 for the first horse and $45.00 for each additional horse LISTED AT THE SAME TIME.

If you would like your horse listed on additional pages (for instance, if you have a driving gelding, he could be listed on the Geldings 3 & Over page AND the Driving Geldings page - and if he was also a Shetland, he could be on that page as well) the cost is an additional $15.00 per page.

Listing will remain on site for 6 months, unless the horse is sold sooner.

CORPORATE SPONSOR LISTING SPACE IS $475.00 for 12 months. (CS are the ads you see on the right side of every page) A 175px x 300px needs to be provided or we can have one designed for $75.00.


If you would like to become a sponsor in 2021, please email karen@minihorsesales.com

Page Sponsorships are available on any page except the home page.

Your farm name/business will be listed on the right side column of the ad, including a link to your site. Take advantage of our high volume traffic to promote YOUR farm! 12 month sponsorships are $275.00, and professional designed ad can be created for $75.00.

Hampstead NH 03841

Your sale horse will not only be promoted on this website, but also on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter! Save YOURSELF the work of creating all these social media links and posts! We do the work!
MOST IMPORTANT - nice, quality photographs! I Only need a few (2-3 would be ideal) but can't sell without good pics! The horse would have to be clipped and prepped in the photos as if he/she was heading to a horse show.

There is NO additional fees unless you would like me to handle all the inquiries as the contact person.

If so, I can do all the correspondence with the potential buyers or put your name/number/email/website as the contact. Just let me know! There is a 15% commission charge for this service.
