What We Do

Pin Hooking

It can seem overwhelming, but Pin Hooking is a no brainer and easier with an experienced team by your side.

Pin Hooking is the practice where we buy a weanling or yearling to sell in the next sales cycle. When we purchase a weanling, we prepare for the yearling sales the following year. For a yearling, we look to sell as a 2-year-old. It’s also possible to pin hook mares who are in foal. This is not as common of a practice but, done carefully, it can yield solid returns.

Even in the toughest economy, buying smart can set you up for success in the next selling season. The most important factors are the selection of horses and patience through the process. Our team is focused on combing through and carefully selecting horses at sales. Maintaining our focus on budget and the quality of the horse are our top priorities. We are part of every step, from acquisition to arranging transportation and prepping for the coming sales and either representing or placing with a consignor in the sales process. While we always look for the diamond in the rough to yield the homerun pin hook, modest consistent returns are important as well.

With Pin Hooking, it’s comforting to know that you can insure your investment. There are not many investments that offer this kind of assurance. If something catastrophic happens, you have the option to carry mortality insurance to cover your capital investment. In an industry with known risk factors, along with the uncertainty of working with a live animal, this provides a sense of security for your investment.

We have successfully Pin Hooked for many years yielding profits well over 20% in 6-month timeframes. It’s a high-risk, high-reward part of the industry but there is nothing like being part of a successful Pin Hook. We look forward to you investing with us at Bella Inizio Farm.

Our matted entry and exit swimming pool allows for an excellent rehabilitative or alternative training tool for your horse. An excellent tool to add to your horses training regimen.

Large Round Pen
