Cove Stables is located in scenic Shenandoah, Virginia (near
Elkton and Harrisonburg). We specialize in locating and selling
naturally gaited (flat shod), sound, sane, trail savvy gaited
horses with beauty and style. We have horses for sale for all
ages and rider skill levels. If we don't have exactly what you
are looking for, we can find it.
We pride ourselves in our ability to select and
fine tune only
the best candidates. We carefully select a few horses to
complete our trail training program. We make note of each
horse's strengths and weaknesses to better allow us to match
them with their perfect rider and fine tune them to bring out
the best in each horse. All of our horses have been trail ridden
extensively, and some have even been shown successfully, BEFORE
we put them up for sale. They will all cross water, logs, be dog
and traffic safe, and much much more. By doing this, we can
ensure that you are getting exactly what we say you're getting.
We can honestly tell you what the horse will and won't do and
help you best determine if he or she is the horse for you!
Unless otherwise disclosed, our horses are SOUND and DRUG FREE!

the new owner know all about the horse so there are no surprises
when you get it home, and if there are surprises, they will be
We offer consignment and sale services for private individuals
who need to sell their horse, but don't have the ability or time
to market them properly. Selling horses is a time consuming
endeavor which requires the ability to honestly assess each
horse, provide photographs and videos to potential buyers, meet
with potential buyers to show the horse and identify good
matches, meet with the veterinarian for pre-purchase exams, and
We have many references from satisfied customers and will be
glad to share them! Our repeat buyers and referrals are the
backbone of our business.
