Mission Purpose. Traditional equine auction facilities involve stressful and often dangerous transport, followed by trauma from the environment and exposure to serious life threatening illnesses for the Horses. Kill buyers frequent these auctions and thrive because of them, putting the horse at risk of shipping to slaughter. Horses Of New Holland, LLC (HONH) understands the many reasons behind horses going to auctions. Often it's due to difficult and unforeseen circumstances the owners have faced, which can leave few options for finding their horse a new home. The purpose of this website is to help horses, and in turn, help the Buyers and Sellers. Sellers will be able to find a buyer in under a week, while keeping their horse safely and cost effectively at home. Buyers will be able to see horses all over the country from their own computer or cell phone, prepare for buying and transporting properly without the stressful time crunch, and bring their new horse directly home if they choose. Peace of mind on both ends can be achieved, and the horse wins in the end. HONH recognizes that the traditional method is outdated, counterproductive and high risk for Buyers, Sellers and Horses. We feel the website offers a solution and will make great improvements by offering this service to save time, money and lives. Win. Win. Win.
Once a horse has been sold through the site, it is the responsibility of the Buyer and Seller to make the necessary arrangements for the pick up of the horse.

User understands that HONH is not a party to the sale although HONH has provided a list of Transporters who HONH believes abide by the mission purpose of HONH and who have provided proof of required licenses and permits to transport horses. However, this is not a substitute for Buyers or Sellers to verify for themselves that the selected Transporter has the requisite licenses and permits and HONH recommends that Buyers and Sellers verify the Transporters credentials before hire.
