Any horse withdrawn from the sale, for any reason other than infirmity, will be assessed a $500 penalty in addition to the catalog fee. NO BACK-ALLEY TRADING IS ALLOWED. This is a contract. You’re consigning your horse to SELL AT THE HORSE SALE. CONSIGNOR AGREES TO NOT PRIVATELY SELL OR WITHDRAW CONSIGNED HORSE TO SALE unless injured/sick with vet release. We recommend not pricing your horse to buyers, let the pricing of your horse to buyers, let the horse sale sell dictate your horses value on the day of sale.

➢ Terms of sale are cash and payment in full to be made to the cashier immediately after the sale.
