$50 - $125 depending on the hauler (number of horses traveling together).

for border crossing is also provided at our expense. Additional
vaccinations or vet checks can be provided at cost for the buyer

- Shipping and export

contacts and will work with you to find the most convenient and
affordable shipping we can.

the horse we will hold your horse until appropriate shipping arrangements
can be made (within reason). We expect that if reasonable shipping
is available you will take your horse on the first available shipping
date. (i.e. If Keyhole (or other reasonably priced hauler) is able
to deliver your horse, we expect you to take delivery, if you choose
not to or are unable to pay for hauling, we will charge board per
day until the the date of departure. Board must be paid in full
prior to departure.

To use Pay Pal you must have your own Pay Pal account - you can

and reliable, however, if you choose to use this service it is by
your own choice and risk. The email address you used to send us
funds is firstname.lastname@example.org.

is a $25.00 fee - please contact us for additional details.

buyer - also at no extra cost (transfer fees will apply)

4-way vaccinations annually in the spring, however, if you would
like your horse vaccinated prior to shipping or would like additional

examination. All foals are scheduled for vaccinations in the spring
and will be vaccinated prior to shipping - buyers may need to administer
- All horses sold to the
US are inspected by a vet for basic health and soundness, however
a detailed, thorough examination can be provided at the request
and expense of the purchaser.

At the time of purchase, we will sign your bill of sale with a statement
that claims to the best of our knowledge the horse that we are selling
you is sound and in good health as inspected by ourselves and, if the
sale is to the US, our vet. We pride ourselves in always disclosing
the smallest imperfection to our buyers. However, inherent in the purchase
of any animal, there comes the risk that something could happen. This
is the risk that is assumed by any purchaser, including ourselves should
we purchase an outside horse. Given the international nature of our
sales and the complexities of shipping and border crossing, we are unable
to offer compensation of any kind if something unforeseen should happen
following arrival. We can only provide you with what information we
have and promise what is within our control. What happens to a horse
after it leaves our farm is beyond that control. The shipping agreement
is between the buyer and the shipper and the liability lies with the
shipping company. Following arrival at the final destination, any sickness,
disease or injuries that arise are beyond our knowledge and control.
Although, in our experience, these instances are rare, we need to define
upfront that all purchases are final. We will work with you every step
of the way to ensure you have the most detailed and accurate information
on your horse as possible and will provide advice and support should
anything happen, however we are under no obligation to provide financial
