We take horses from the track because we enjoy working with them. It is our fun to ride and train these beautiful animals.
The horses at Bits & Bytes Farm are ALL for sale – to the right match. We did not bring these horses in to flip them quickly to any buyer with money. Please do not insult us by asking why a horse has been at the farm so long . . . because you will be asking about one of our favorites! We don’t HAVE to sell any of them. We take great pleasure placing them with the right match and watching their Success Stories.
If you can’t buy a horse without sitting on him, then purchasing a horse that is here at our farm is your best option. These horses have various levels of training and will only be sold if we think that you are a good match for what the horse likes to do and you can give him a good home. We will not sell a horse if we think that the horse is too green for your ability or he does not want to do your discipline. Please do not be offended when we ask you about your goals and desires in your future horse. We can help match you with a horse if you will be open and honest with us about your needs and limitations.
There is a list of horses as a sub menu to this page. Each horse’s page describes the horse; age, sex, size, likes and dislikes and training. Use the Search feature to find more information on this site about the horse of your dreams. Our plan is to update their training as posts to the Newz pages. Not all of our horses are listed here.

So Romeo is a 2002, 16 hand, dark bay (almost black) Thoroughbred gelding. He is by Peaks and Valleys who was the Canadian Champion three year old colt and Horse of the Year in 1995. So Romeo was starving in the pasture when we found him again after he left the track. He is fat and happy now but looking for a new partner to take him to the show ring.
With Wings is a 2005, 16.1+ hand, bay gelding. He is kind and sweet and a gorgeous mover with dressage and eventing potential. He won a stakes race at two but he has not lived up to the talent of his sire – Marquetry, or his 1982 Horse of the Year grand sire, Conquistador Cielo. With Wings is the brother of Reign Day.
Saint Lawrence is our baby. He was born on May 5, 2010. His brother is Running Tall who was sold as a Prospect Horse from the track and his mom is Great Game who was also sold as a Prospect Horse directly from her breeder. Saint Lawrence is currently in training and not available for sale at this time.
