After Purchase Information

You placed the successful final bid, the auction lot is CLOSED, and now you are the proud owner of a new horse.

Here are some suggestions to help you through the process:

  1. You will receive confirmation of your purchase after the close of the sale
  2. Our Sale Admin will send you an invoice and methods of payment within 24 hours of sale close *please confirm your name and address are correct in your bidder registration*
  3. Payment method will be arranged and funds wired or electronically transferred between you and the sale administrator
  4. Bill of sale, along with Seller information will be forwarded by the Sale Administrator for signing by both you and the seller
  5. Your horse will be released to you by the seller ONLY AFTER our office has confirmed receipt of payment.
  6. It generally takes 24-48 hours after sending them for your funds to clear our bank if they are sent via Wire or Electronic Transfer or Direct Deposited Certified Cheque. If you Direct Deposit a regular cheque it will take minimum of 5 days to clear and you will not be permitted to pick up your horse before this happens.
  7. Please remain aware of this as you plan for post sale shipping/pick up of your new horse.
  8. Your horse will be insured for their purchase price and boarded at the seller’s facility, free of charge, for (up to) 10 days following the close of the sale. After this time you will need to make arrangements for boarding your horse.
    *If you are boarding your horse with the seller longer than 10 days you are assuming all risks and the sale recommends you extend their insurance coverage for that duration of time.
