What is Horsezone?
The HORSEZONE concept was conceived during the infamous fire and flood auction in 2009 where over $140,000 was raised for victims of the disaster. The site was officially launched by Inglis in April 2010.
The virtual equine sales ring provides the opportunity to sell horses through online classified listings while other related products such as saddlery, tack and horse vehicles can be listed as classifieds or auctions. The site also features the latest equine News, Business Directory, Event Calendar, Stallion Profiles and Gallery. With a growing audience of over 160,000 visits per month HORSEZONE is well on its way to fulfilling its goal of becoming the number one horse sales site in Australasia.
HORSE ZONE is the most cost effective, convenient place to search, buy and sell a horse or product.
BUY & SELL
If you are looking to buy or sell, HORSEZONE is the leading online sales platform, with easy to search features for buyers and a cost-effective method to promote your horse or product to our large unique equine audience.

- Set up email alerts with your selected criteria and be the first to know when new listings become available.
I would like to thank you for your amazing website. We were struggling to sell our truck and had booked advertising in a print magazine, but it wouldn’t be out for weeks, so we decided to give Horsezone a try. We sold the truck within 2 days of posting the ad! The only problem now is when the print advertising finally comes out the truck will already be sold, which is why instant advertising online is so much better. We will definitely be advertising with Horsezone in the future. Thank you again!

At HORSEZONE it costs $5 to list an item for auction. If the item sells there is a 3% commission on the final sale price. An auction can run for up to one month, list an item for auction.
In the past we have run successful auctions for stallion services to help raise money for clubs and associations. This year we ran the NPHA stallion service auction in May raising $22,380 and just recently for the third year ran the AWHA Qld Branch stallion service auction raising $8,495.
On behalf of the AWHA QLD Branch committee and members I would like to thank Horsezone, for your support of our 2013 online stallion service auction. It is greatly appreciated. Without your support such an auction could not take place. The auction has raised considerable funds for our Branch, selling six of the nine stallion services on offer. This goes a long way in supporting our colt classification days, mare assessments in Far North Queensland, QLD FOD stand, advertising materials, etc. Flying classifiers in from interstate can be expensive, along with accommodation costs, meals, etc. Thank you.

HORSEZONE recently acted as agent for the Thai Government and sourced 40 horses with a very specific detail. When inspection took place the Police General inspected 42 horses to purchase 40. His comment was “I have never inspected such high quality horses that met our requirements perfectly”.

HORSE ZONE understands that one of the most significant challenges is attracting sponsorship… so how can HORSEZONE help?
We have set up a club contribution scheme for not-for-profit equine clubs or associations. All you need to do is ensure yourclub or association is registered. Then when a member lists a horse for sale on HORSE ZONE they will be presented at the checkout with the option to have HORSEZONE contribute 10% of their total listing fee to a club or association of their choice. If they select your club, you will receive the sponsorship money from HORSE ZONE once the balance reaches $200. You can start raising funds for your club today and it’s FREE.
What do you need to do?
- Register your club on HORSEZONE; and
- Inform your Members about HORSEZONE in your newsletter/website (we have the advertising creative ready for insertion).
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

What is it?
Integration enables horses that are relevant to your club and to your region, that are listed for sale on HORSEZONE, to feed straight into your website.
Why do it?
- To encourage your members to list their horses for sale on HORSEZONE and donate 10% of their listing fees to your club for sponsorship.
So that you are offering your members a chance to buy and sell their horses to other club members on your website and you don’t need to spend time administering it.
Who else has done it?
Many clubs, associations and breed societies throughout Australia eg: ACT Showjumping Club,Berrima Pony Club,Central Coast Dressage Club,Equestrian Queensland,Dressage NSW and the Sydney Quarter Horse Association to name a few.
How do we get started?

TIM DREVERMAN – BUSINESS MANAGER
Tim grew up on the Monaro in the Snowy Mountains of NSW and has ridden horses all his life. He followed his mum and sister to shows around the country for many years, where he won and placed in countless rider and open classes. When Tim finally finished school he followed his dream and had a week of showjumping lessons with Grant Hughes. 12 years later Tim still spends countless hours riding under the watchful eye of Grant. Grant has helped Tim produce horses to A&B grade level and continues to be an amazing mentor.
Along the way Tim also built up and ran his own business, Snowy Mountains Performance Horses, based in his home town of Berridale. Tim soon became known as the team coach of Snowy Mountains Grammar School Equestrian Team, teaching the students and other locals in the region the art of riding, while also breaking in horses, selling feed and running events. Tim and his crew run the annual Snowy Mountains Showjumping Festival held in the Snowy Mountains each January. He is also a well known announcer at many events, including the Brisbane Ekka, Melbourne and Canberra Royals, just to name a few.
As the Horsezone's Business Manager Tim looks after the day to day running of Horsezone and the developments moving into the future. He has been with the team since January 2012 and loves being part of the ever growing Horsezone team.
When not talking about or working with horses, which isn't often, Tim loves to hang out with his partner Rhi Ellis.
