  • About Sale in the Swamp

    The University of Florida Equine Program produces its annual 2 year old performance horse sale each spring.  A capstone project that brings together years of hard work for many of our students, donors, alumni, and staff that demonstrates our programs commitment to education and production.  Many of our graduating seniors have had the opportunity to follow these young horses through the various courses offered as part of the Equine Sciences Program.  Our young horses are handled rountinely through our practicum courses such as...

    • Breeding
    • Foaling
    • Weanling Handling
    • and Psychology and Training

    The program breeds, trains, and sells 16 - 20 head each year in this sale.  Our students are involved each step of the way with the sale proceeds returning to the program helping us achieve an outstanding teaching, research, and extension program.

  • Pre-Show Season / Private Treaty Sales

    Horses produced by the UF Equine Program have a significant presence and success in AQHA shows across the country.  The program recognizes the benefits of getting well-bred horses into the hands of trainers and private individual’s committed to showing our off spring. 

    Potential buyers are welcome to visit us to preview our foals and weanlings throughout the year.  Generally, horses offered for sale prior to Sale in the Swamp are selected based on the popularity of particular sires and mares, whether the sale of that off spring is beneficial to both the buyer and the UF Horse Program, and whether the program can meet its teaching/research demands for the upcoming year.

    Buyers contemplating purchasing a younger horse out the program for this purpose can expect an asking price in line with current industry prices.  All horses must be sold according to State of Florida and university rules and guidelines.  Potential offers must be made before September 1 of the yearling year.

    Individuals interested in scheduling a visit may contact Angela Chandler at 334-740-2628.
