Terms of Business

Description: All of our horses on the team are carefully described by our trained staff who work with them on a daily basis and represent their opinion of their behavior and experience to date.

A member of staff will ride the horse for the potential purchaser and once they are happy that the horse is suited to them we welcome you to ride the horse without obligation to the purchase.

Vetting: You are strongly advised to have an independent veterinary examination before purchase.

Deposit: If you wish to reserve a horse (which means we won’t sell him to anyone else) a deposit of £200 CASH is required. We have been forced to introduce this as a result of the many people who put in “firm” offers but then change their minds a week later, resulting in lost time and money. The reserve deposit is refundable if the horse fails the veterinary inspection.

PLEASE NOTE: A deposit is valid for ONE WEEK ONLY. We have new buyers looking for horses at all times and we cannot hold horses longer than a week.

Part exchanges: We occasionally do part exchanges, but only in cases where the cash portion in 50% or more of the price.

Contracts: Every horse is sold under contract. The horse is sold as seen and once successfully passed a veterinary inspection we have no obligation to take the horse back, however it is not in our interest to have unhappy clients, we therefore always endeavour to advise clients on the horse that matches there requirements from the offset to the final sale.

Once a horse passes its veterinary exam, we regard the horse as sold and we have no legal obligation to take it back. However, we do not want a customer to have a horse that doesn’t suit them, so we will always try to exchange an unsuitable horse for one of the equivalent value. The horse must be returned within one month of the date of sale. No refunds are given.
