Hints for buyers & sellers of ex racehorses & other equines
What am I supposed to do for a horse? How am I supposed to buy a pony? Many ways a purchaser and vendor can arrange to close a deal exist. Purchasers may demand preferential conditions such as a probationary or instalment payment, some vendors will accept, the overwhelming majority will want advance payment in advance. Ideally, the purchaser should personally see the vendor and the vendor and give the vendor money at the moment the vendor takes over the animal.
As a rule, if the purchaser has paid with a cheque, the vendor will not approve the product until the cheque has been released. Prior to sending a stallion, the vendor should contact the local banking institution to confirm that the buyer's cheque has been "cashed", even if it is a bank-certified "cashier's cheque" or payment order. Since the purchaser must make the payment for the product before taking it over and as a rule sell it without warranties of any kind, the purchaser must thoroughly examine the product before making the payment.
Irrespective of whether you give the vendor money or send a cheque, we advise the purchaser to ask the vendor for a sales contract that includes the date and amount of the deal, the bought horses and the name and address of the purchaser and the vendor, signed by both of them.
Keeping it very brief and easy, if the vendor does not know how to draw up or not want a sales contract, the purchaser can issue one and ask the vendor to write it. It is also recommended that the purchaser inform the vendor whether or not the signing of the registry documents should be included with the delivery of the horses.
What can I do to bring the stallion home? Shipment charges differ widely according to the place of departure and place of delivery, and include how far the vehicle must be from the major routes, how many horses are on a particular cargo and how much room the vehicle needs for the animal.
The best thing is to call and ask the vendor for a referral. Our wisdom is that shipments of one equine item to most locations in the USA range from approximately $500 to $1500. Ensure that the vendor has an up-to-date Coggins certification for the product to be sent and ask the sender what Coggins dated information they require and whether a medical certification or other certification is needed.
Where the consignor needs a medical statement, you or the vendor must ensure that a veterinary examines the animal before dispatch. When you perform a veterinary examination prior to purchasing, this veterinary surgeon can probably issue a medical statement for you and send it by mail to the carrier or vendor prior to transportation.
Make sure that you inform the veterinarian before the examination that you need a medical report if the animal "passes" the test and you choose to close a sale. Where can I find and buy a former racing or sportshorse for pleasure? It' probably not a good thing to buy an ex racer without seeing him personally, unnoticed on the basis of photographs or videos, unless it's a genuine good deal and you have the opportunity to keep the bike if it doesn't meet your expectation.
This would be okay for some folks, because a stallion that is not suitable for one individual can be ideal for another, and in many parts of the nation you can even make a gain from reselling it. There are several Ex-Racers for sale or adopted on this website.
When you can make a journey to see some saddle riding and you are not an expert coach yourself, please take your own teacher or coach with you who has previous knowledge of teaching a young or former racehorses. Unless you are an expert coach or do not take periodic instruction from an educator who can help you develop a riding style that is truly organic, it may not be a good thing to buy an ex-racing or organic one.
When you buy a stallion that is not seen due to pictures or videos, a veterinary inspection is definitely fine. Well, if the horse's cheap, you don't have to x-ray it. Let the veterinarian perform a general examination first and then determine whether x-rays or ultrasonography are recommended.
Look at this information with care, but also keep in mind that there is no such thing as a perfectly made product. Although many purchasers only take a trailers with them when they come to see them, travelling commercially can be much less expensive and is usually a good idea. We' ve found that shipments in the United States are typically between $500 and $1500, but they can differ widely based on where you are and which sender you are using.
Please also keep in mind that you will need a current "Coggins", a medical certification and possibly other vaccination certifications to cross the state border. This can be done if you have a veterinarian test done. First ask the vendor if the animal has a current "Coggins" or other certification - most ex-racers do this because they need a vaccination record to be on the racetrack.
While we try to motivate vendors to get a good videotape of their product, it's often just not convenient, so shoppers shouldn't be expecting it from vendors of ex-racers. Frequently these are equines for which the vendor could have initially spent ten or hundred thousand dollar. When the salesman suffers a great deal of damage, there is no incentive to make much effort to do so.
They can have other horse that earn cash and have precedence, so that the "loser" is sent out to graze until someone comes to give him a new home. Sponsorship organisations like Second Stride are doing an excellent job of closing this void and giving pensioned drivers a second opportunity for a prolific racing carrer.
It is up to the purchaser to do the work to find out if the animal is suitable for him. This usually means making a journey to see the horses and being groomed with a turn and a horseman to try them out, or taking a break and wait to see them riding once you have bought them and brought them home.
When you find a salesman who is willing to put a stallion to the test, you are in luck. In order to get something similar that has been raised as a show jump ers, hunters, eventers or trainers, you may have to pay a lot more for it. With a little bit of trouble and adventure, a purchaser can find a show or escort off the racetrack.
Which is the best way to promote a former race or sportsman? When you are the proprietor or coach of a racer who needs to be excluded from the race because of bad performances or injuries, there are some things you can do to speed up the sale of your horses to a good home.
Once the stallion is healthy, try to make a videotape of him with a horseman walking, trotting (jogging) and galloping (galloping/hanging), preferring the stallion to be as laid -back as possible and preferring free running. In case the stallion is too high on the racetrack to make a proper videotape possible, please let the stallion go to the yard for a whole weekend or so.
When it is not possible to put a horseman on the saddle when he is back on the yard, make a videotape of him at all three walks in the willow. When you can get him to put a small hindrance in a round enclosure or even while he's still on the racetrack (in the stable area), this will help a great deal to speed up the sale of your stable, and you could get a great deal more cash than you might have expected if he shows readiness and good shape even at a small leap (bales of hay placed end to end make good jumps).
Sports equestrian purchasers are not only looking for eye-catching looks and sizes, but above all for large corridors with "suspension", loosening in the shoulders, walking over (rear leg falling in front of the front footprint) and generally for the right foundation for the sports the purchaserintends.
A lot of shoppers demand that a potential customer be 16 or larger but some are more agile, especially top class show jumpers and top class pole climbers who are more concerned with the horses' physical performance and posture. When your stallion has a situation, reduce the cost accordingly. When he is not a gelding, go ahead and neuter him as soon as you choose to offer him for sale as a sports animal.
When you have a pony that you think is probably 16 or larger in size, please try to check it before informing the prospective purchaser of its size. It' s simpler to take the effort to test him before the purchaser asks if he really has 16 palms, so you can say: "I tested him and he was exactly 16.
One hand on the stick". Think about it, although it sometimes looks like everyone is looking for a stable with more than 16 pairs of hand, there are shoppers who are size sensitive and some who are specifically looking for a stable with 16 pairs. Playing dressage is always a good idea for 16 hand looking equestrian sports and many love a mare.
If your stallion is hurt, please pass it on to someone who is willing to take it back to health, or make a donation to one of the nonprofit organisations specialising in former race horses.
