**** CALL FOR BUY NOW PRICE ****
Hello everyone I would like you to meet “A Classic Hytone” or “Champ” as he’s known around our barn.
I’m not even sure where to begin talking about this horse but here it goes.
He is a beautiful classic champagne registered Tennessee Walking Horse gelding that stands a shade over 15 hands tall on 4 keg shoes. He has been my dedicated trail partner all summer long!
Please don’t let Champ’s young age scare you for he has been ridden more miles than a lot of 10 year old trail horses!
I purchased this horse in January of 2023 and rode him some during the winter and early spring months but I mainly left him turned out.
When warm weather hit, I caught him up and set in on him. In the last few months we’ve consistently ridden no less than 25-30 miles a week across all different kinds of trails, highways and terrain.
Champ is at his best in the woods. I have yet to come up on a hill he couldn’t climb, a log he wouldn’t cross or a river he wouldn’t wade across. Champ does great by himself in the woods or in a group, he has no problem being leader and no problem being a follower at the back of the pack.
This horse has taken the very best care of me. He is sure footed and takes his time in the roughest and slickest of terrain.
Champ has a stylish and flashy 4 beat gait that will be the envy of your friends, but if flat foot walking all day is your forte, no worries. Champ will walk on a relaxed rein all day long as well. Champ is light and responsive in the mouth, will neck rein and back, he will also canter right out of a flatfoot walk.
Champ is eager to please in all aspects, when it’s time to go riding simply go to his stall, open the door and tell him “Come here”, and he will walk straight out of stall and follow you like a well trained dog straight to the cross ties.
He stands quietly in cross ties, he doesn’t mind a hair cut with clippers, he enjoys a good bath, he also stands well to be tacked up. When it’s time to go riding, he stands the very best to mount, he will stand as still as a statue with no tension in the reins until you have mounted and asked him to walk off.
Champ stands well for the farrier, he loads and unloads well on any kind of trailer.
He will stand quiet on a picket line all night and he’s also comfortable in hobbles.
Champ is solid around traffic, he doesn’t mind gunfire, bicycles, side by sides, 4 wheelers, dogs, trains, deer, or turkeys, if you can think of it, some time in the last ten months I’d say me and him have encountered it.
He’s not only broke the very best on his back, but he works single or double, he has been worked in a wagon team and also worked single in a cart, both of which he does exceptionally well.
Champ has been an eager learner and catches on quickly anytime I have introduced a new “trick” or command. I can literally talk all day long about this horse.
He is a dream to have around the barn, most days you won’t even know he’s on the property, he keeps his stall and himself clean, and when he’s turned out he’s mid to low in the pecking order.
Champ is gonna make some lucky person an unbelievable trail partner for many years to come. He comes clean and sound. He is also up to date on worming, shoeing and teeth work.
Please, if you’re interested in him, watch his whole video and feel free to contact me with any further questions and as always feel free to schedule an appointment to come ride and see him in person. Thank you!

Proxy bidding is an automatic bidding system that is great to use! Entering a proxy amount allows the system to automatically bid on your behalf. This keeps you from having to babysit the auction. It also protects your maximum bid by not displaying that amount until you are bid against. We advise entering your max bid especially if you will be away from your electronic device or in a poor service area at the end of the auction. To place a proxy, or automatic, bid simply enter the amount of your maximum bid into the Custom Bid box. This allows the system to automatically enter your next bid $100 above contending bidders until your maximum bid is met or the auction ends, whichever comes first. You may also increase your maximum bid at any time without it displaying until you are bid against. If your maximum bid is reached and you are outbid, you will receive an email letting you know that you have been outbid.
Buy It Now:
If the bidding process is NOT for you, we offer a Buy It Now (BIN) option. This option allows you to purchase a horse immediately without waiting until the auction closes. The Buy It Now (BIN) option is available at the seller’s discretion. If the seller offers a Buy It Now option, a bidder can purchase that horse immediately at a price set by the seller. When the “Buy It Now” button is selected, the auction will end immediately. At that time, the purchaser is responsible to make payment arrangements with Classic Horse Auction. You may either be invoiced or you may pay via credit card (a 4% processing fee will be added for all credit card transactions). The “Buy It Now” option will be removed prior to the close of the auction.
Please be aware that if a bid is placed within 5 minutes of the close of the auction, an additional 5 minutes will be added to the clock. Time will extend for each new bid placed until 5 minutes has gone by with no new bids.
In the event of technical issues (site crash, server glitch, etc.) within the last 10 minutes of the auction that prevent you from placing your bid, please contact Hope Jenne (615-545-6488) within TEN MINUTES of the close of the auction.
Non Payment Fee:
Buyers are required to make payment by the close of business the following day. Purchasers who do not will be charged a $1,000 fee to the card on file. This also applies to purchasers using the Buy It Now option.
Still Need Help?:
Serving customers, both buyers and sellers, is our top priority. We want this to be a seamless process for everyone involved. Please reach out to us via text or call with any additional questions you might have.
