Buying A Horse
Commission - 10% of the selling price,
minimum of $500
The Commission doesn’t
My evaluation does not guarantee the soundness or health of the horse. It is strongly recommended to have a thorough veterinarian examination performed. It is also suggested that the buyer be present during the examination. The examinations may take up to three hours. If the potential buyer is not present and Katie Moriarty or Patty Bennett Keeler assist the veterinarian during the examination, then additional fees may apply.
On Course Riding Academy receives a commission when a horse is purchased.
Trial Period- On some occasions, the seller will allow the potential buyer to take the horse on trial. Some sellers require insurance for the trial. During this period of time, the potential buyer will pay for the horse to be shipped to On Course Riding Academy and will pay for the board, lessons, training and veterinarian examination. It is an added expense, but it allows the buyer to really see what they are buying. The time period can range from 1 day to a week
There is a risk about taking a horse on trial. The potential buyer must return the horse in the same condition that it was taken. During this period, any jumping or heavy exercise of the horse must be done during a lesson or under Katie’s supervision. The required insurance binder will only cover mortality and possibly major medical, it does not cover a lameness that occurred during the trial period. If the potential buyer takes a horse on trial and the horse goes lame, then the horse would need to stay boarded at On Course until the horse returned to his original state.
