Horses are sold on a first come basis. We do not hold horses unless we receive a non-refundable cash deposit on that horse. We also sell many horses to out of state buyers and may be talking with someone from another state or someone that has previously come out and tried the horse, so the horse may sell at any time if we have not received a deposit to hold. Setting an appointment to come see horse, does not guarantee that the horse will not sell before that appointed time. If a horse does sell, we make every attempt to contact anyone who has set an appointment to see that particular horse and let them know, but it is always best to check in before you come and make sure that horse is still available. We try to provide prospective purchasers with all the information good and bad that we know about a horse. Some of the horses we may not have had for long periods of time, may not have much background info on, and/or we may not see certain behaviors, habits or problems in their time here. We do our best to represent our horses openly and honestly, and to spend time riding, handling and evaluating each horse before marketing it, but make no guarantees on fitness, behavior, soundness or suitability. We welcome veterinary prepurchase exams at buyers expense. We will be happy to haul the horse to a vet of your choice in most instances, or depending on distance/circumstances allow the buyer to haul the horse.
We do NOT allow trial periods on our horses. You are welcome to come visit, handle and ride any of horses as many times as you like before making a decision, but we do not allow our horses to go out on trials. We have this policy in the interest of our horses safety. We also generally have several people interested in one horse and like to keep that horse available for all buyers to see and ride. In the case of a trained performance horse, we will haul to local arenas or events, within reason, for you to try in a competition or arena setting.
Buyers are responsible for making their own shipping arrangements and covering all costs/payments to the selected shipper. We do not recommend shippers, but will be happy to work with the shipper of your choice. We have sent horses to California, Pennsylvania and many states in between. Have your shipper contact us and we will set an appointment to have your horse picked up. We will have him ready to go when they arrive with all necessary paperwork.
