SELLER'S INFO

Making the decision to sell your horse is hard enough. Learning the market, how to advertise, dealing with buyers, scams, Vets, transport, contracts.... It’s a full time job. It’s my full time job. Let me help you.

 

All owners are welcome to bring their horse to the farm personally, meet me, and check out the place. Some owners choose to have their horse shipped to the farm, and that’s fine too. If assistance with horse transport needs to be arranged, not a problem.

FEES

Sales Fee - 10% of sale price, minimum of $650. When the horse arrives at the farm, $200 of the fee is due upfront. The remaining balance plus board is due when your horse sells. For example, if your horse sells for $4000 you will owe a total sales fee of $650 plus board. If your horse sells for $9000 you will owe $900 plus board.

 

Your fee includes their evaluation, pictures, video, advertising, and showing your horse to buyers. All horses are ridden at least once a week while they’re at the farm. I take care of arrangements for Vet, Farrier, transport needs, and sales contracts.

Upon arrival, your horse is put into a quarantine pasture, where they’ll spend a few days before I choose the right herd for them to join. Before advertising, I ride all the horses in both the round pen and out on trail to properly evaluate them. They will be ridden at least once a week until sold. Sales pictures and video will be taken. I advertise on multiple platforms to reach as many buyers as possible. Any Vet or Farrier work needed to get your horse up to date will be taken care of prior to their sale. I also help the buyers with arranging pre-purchase exams, along with transport if needed.

Matching your horse with a suitable buyer that will provide a great future, is important to me. Lifestyle, personality, riding ability, are all factors taken into consideration. I have no issue saying “this horse is not suitable for you” to a potential buyer. Rather than rush a sale, the goal is to find your horse a forever home.

Board- $10 per day until sold. All horses are out on pasture 24/7, with mares and geldings kept separate. Horses are pulled in daily to be fed, brushed, fly sprayed or blanketed as needed.

Other fees- Prior to selling, all horses are required to have a minimum of a current negative coggins, 5-way vaccine, deworming, and maintained feet. If your horse needs to be brought current, this can be done at the farm. All Vet and Farrier expenses are the responsibility of the owner. No service will be performed without prior consent by owner, unless it is an emergency.

  • Will I have contact with the new owner?
    - That is up to both you and the new owner.
  • How do you determine where to price the horses?
    - A lot has to do with the current market. What are people paying for comparable horses. - Age, breed, training, disposition play into this. - Owners often have an idea of what they want, and after I’ve evaluated the horse, that’s when we decide on a price. - Please keep in mind that your horse’s monetary value is not determined by what the horse once was, or what they could be with additional training. It’s not based off what you paid for the horse or how much you have financially or emotionally invested.
  • What happens if it does not work out for my horse and the new owner?
    - Every seller has the option to include a right-of-refusal in the sales contract. - I also offer a discounted rate and deferred payment for buyers to return a horse to be re-listed, should that horse not work out for them. This gives peace of mind to buyers, the owners, and myself.
