Buyer Etiquette and Responsibility

  Buyers have an obligation to represent honestly their skill level and intentions. Buyers who don’t take the time and trouble to learn good horsemanship ruin good horses quickly.  Remember no horse is ever “finished.” They are sensitive creatures that continue to learn new behaviors throughout their lives and a horse can only be as good as it is maintained through optimal care and training.  A novice horse person or beginner can “undo” professional training and create resistant behavior in just a few days and rides. At Sport Equine, we don't want to sell you an unsuitable horse. Help us help you with accurate representation of your riding limits, experience, and goals. If a horse’s price is more than you want to spend, ask whether it’s negotiable before you make an appointment. If the answer is no, there's no point wasting each other's time. The turnover rate for sales horses at Sport Equine is very rapid due to the pricing structure and dramatic results of good training. Please wait to inquire until you are ready to acquire a horse rather than just beginning to look around. Otherwise inquisition is pointless and the horses will likely be sold before you have a chance to consider them. If you need to sell your existing horse before acquiring a new one, please address that issue first. If you are serious about one of our horses consider putting a deposit to hold and buy yourself first right of refusal to avoid the heartache of finding out you missed out on the horse you've been searching for. A small deposit to hold may be advisable even before your first visit if your schedule prevents immediate travel to see a horse you are very interested in. Deposits buy you time and right of refusal. They apply toward the purchase but they cannot be refunded for any reason so it's important to ask questions and understand what you are doing. The right and responsibility to have a horse fully examined by an equine veterinarian is that of the buyer and not something we provide. Don't expect us to know the health and soundness life history of our sales and consignment horses. We will disclose what we have discovered and observed in our horses but cannot predict what is invisible to the naked eye or predict how a horse will respond and hold up in different situations. Every horse is different and we don't have a crystal ball. We recommend buyers exercise the right to seek full discovery through pre-purchase veterinary and trainer examinations but this is at the discrecion of each individual who must put things into persprective for their specific needs and budget.  Another important realization is that while we keep our prices as low as possible, they increase monthly in direct proportion to the costs of comprehensive care and training that the horses receive. Most horses that come to Sport Equine und up receiving an extreme makeover through intensive training and impeccable care. You will see an astonishing transformation in them take place week by week as a result. Sometimes a buyer will opt to leave a horse in training a few more weeks to further the progress and/or take lessons to learn to best utilize the training and improve their odds of success with the horse. Expect that the horse you come to see will perform better for the trainer than you and realize that the wonderful feel of a well trained horse is a very delicate thing that will not remain without qualified riding. Subtle differences in riding technique produce very different responses from horses. The acquisition of any horse, regardless of how well trained, is just the beginning of a process that should challenge you to continuously work toward improving all aspects of your horsemanship skill. Happy Riding!

     Please note there are always horses available at Sport Equine that have not been advertised or posted anywhere that may be available for viewing by rider qualification and approval. If you would like to schedule a viewing of any of our horses please print, read, fill out and sign our waiver of liability contract before you come and return via email or bring with you to your appointment. Be sure and fill out your experience and proficiency levels at the end so we can best assist you during your visit. Please bring your own well fitted helmet which you will be required to wear while mounted at all times. If you do not have one we will provide one for your use.
