The Department of Animal Science is making a change. Due to the vast potential of the Internet and its ability to reach so many potential buyers, we will transition to selling UConn horses online versus an on site auction. With the ability to market our horses to a larger audience beyond New England along with the endless resources to assist with online sales, we know we can do a better job of matching up our horses with an appropriate new owner/rider.
For more information, please contact John Bennett at 860-486-2034 or email Kimberly.Syme@UConn.edu.
*Horses can be viewed by appointment Monday-Friday during normal business hours.*
Please check back frequently! For notifications when horses become available, join the mailing list here.

"Strider" is a thirteen year-old, 15.1 hand registered chestnut Morgan gelding. Strider is the ultimate beginner/novice horse and has been a favorite in our program for several years. He is capable of taking a rider from learning to trot, all the way to 2ft courses with ease. He is a favorite draw in both English and Western intercollegiate shows. He also has had extensive driving training, but has not been driven for several years so he would need a refresher course. In addition to this, he is a member of the UConn Morgan Drill Team and is great on trail rides. Strider is also very comfortable with a good attitude and is very dependable. Strider would be the perfect addition to any program. He has also had extensive driving training but has not been driven for several years so he would need a refresher course.
