Harrington Horses is a personal yet professional business, we are one of the few importers that can find the time to regularly make the trips to our breeders in Holland to view and meet our potential superstars in person! We have a maximum of 10 top quality sports horses for sale at any one time which have all been selected for their breeding, ability, confirmation and temperament. Each horse receives a full clinical vetting before leaving Holland and are open to further vetting here in the UK should it be required. Most UK insurance companies are happy to accept these vettings for insurance purposes.
All clients are welcome to come and view / try the horses using our top facilities at our yard located in Petham near Canterbury just 50 minutes from the M25, where all horses can be seen in a homely environment and nothing is hidden away from the public eye.
After sales services
Following the purchase of your lovely new horse we are able to help you with the following services –
Breaking of young horses – We have many years experience in breaking in horses and believe that these first steps in a horses career are of upmost importance therefore are a very critical time in your horses education. Please see our livery page for more details.

Schooling & training – is available for all clients with their new horse. As we will have had the horse for some weeks getting to know its character, behavior, strengths, weaknesses, likes and dislikes we always like to take the time to share these with the new owner of the horse so you are always that one step ahead.
Whether you require anything from feeding advice to competing of your horse we are always happy to assist and owners are welcome to keep their horse with us for as much or little time is required.
All of the above services come highly recommended by our many happy clients!
“As a rider and competitor of show jumping horses I am happy to say that I could not be happier with the purchase of two exceptionally talented young horses from Harrington Horses. Being in Australia and buying these two incredible horses from footage only is nerve wracking to say the least but Mya from Harringtons was nothing but honest, reliable and professional the whole time. To say the care of my horses is important is an understatement, Mya and her team were incredible with the management and the regular updates and footage of both our special show jumpers. Both horses have now arrived in Australia and both every bit of a performer Mya had told us they would be, they arrived healthy and well groomed. Harrington Horses is definitely a service that we will use again, our horses are every bit of athlete we expected.”
Transporting your horse to it's new home
In the past I have sold horses world wide and worked closely with vets and transporters to do so. Over the years I have built up fantastic relationships with the top transportation companies which means transport can be arranged world wide at a reasonable extra cost, this makes receiving your new horse less stressful and all horses will be delivered to you happily and comfortably within a reasonable time frame.
We can arrange multiple trips per week to UK mainland and we also cover the following countries regularly –
FRANCE, SPAIN, PORTUGAL, ITALY,GREECE, CYPRUS, BELGIUM, HOLLAND, GERMAY, AUSTRIA, DENMARK, SWEDEN, SWITZERLAND, HUNGAYR AND CZECH REPUBLIC.
AIR TRAVEL can also be arranged to USA, MIDDLE EAST, AUSTRALIA and many more countries.
Services can be arranged through our trusted vet and being a registered veterinary nurse myself allows me to keep up to date with the import / export requirements of horses. I work very closely with local vets to provide many different services such as export paper work, castration of colts and Artificial Insemination (AI) services are also available at our yard should you wish to put your new young superstar in foal.
At Harrington Horses we take great pride in the horses we sell and care about where and to whom our horses go. It means a lot to me that I find each horse a suitable new home where they will receive the right education allowing him or her to progress in their career and excel in their suitable sphere of the equestrian world. I like my clients to feel they are welcome to contact me for any help and advice and all feedback is welcome. I have a personal interest with hearing from owners as to how their horse is settling in, I also love to stay in touch and be updated on any future achievements between horse and rider.
