Sales Consignment Information
Consignment includes all board and costs, including grass hay fed free choice, alfalfa hay twice a day, grain pellets, stalls cleaned daily, shavings as needed, blanketing if desired. Also includes all sales prep: ie: clipping, bathing, banding manes, all products and supplies used, tail care, wraps, etc. All professional photographs and videos including editing, all marketing including paid advertisements. Fielding all buyer calls, meeting buyers and showing the horse. Helping coordinate coggins and health certificates, obtaining shipping quotes.
We pride ourselves on matching horses and owners. Most of our sales horses belong to clients, therefore, while we do make a commission, we don't walk with the full sales price. On the rare occasion that we have to resell a horse, we lose money. So, making the perfect match and representing the horse accurately is our priority.
We sell all breeds and types of horses, however our specialty is family horses, ranch horses, trail horses, cowhorses, reining horses, and ranch versatility horses.
We are one hour East of Dallas, Texas. The closest airport is DFW (Dallas Fort Worth) or Dallas Love Field. There are several local hotels and hookups for Living Quarter Trailers also available a short distance from our facility. We welcome and encourage vet checks at buyers expense, as horses are sold as is. We will assist all buyers with obtaining coggins, health Certificates and request shipping quotes for you as well. Buyers are welcome to see and try any horses we have available as much as they'd like. You are welcome to bring your own tack or choose from ours. We do accept cash, checks (horse will be held until personal checks clear) and PayPal (friends and family). We offer 3 days free board after the purchase of said horse and will pro rate daily fees ($20 per day) as needed until horse is picked up.
All horses must have a current coggins before leaving and a health certificate if traveling out of state. Please keep this in mind as a standard Coggins test takes 2-3 days to receive. We do offer short payment plans, terms vary depending on horse and price, contact us direct for more information. Trades considered on some horses, contact for more details.
As a buyer if you are ever unhappy with a horse you purchase from us or simply just want or need to re-sell the horse at any time (no expiration, no strings), we will assist you in marketing and advertising the horse. We can not refund your money (we don't own most of these horses, they belong to clients) but regardless of the reason you wish to sell them, we will help you with all of it. We do offer a reduced resale option within 3 months of purchase. Following three months, you do pay the same rate as any other consignment customer.
We do suggest and encourage pre purchase exams. At this time we only haul in to Athens Equine for pre purchases and must schedule appointments around our availability. You are welcome to meet us there and be present for the exam.
Deposits are required to hold any horse or to schedule a pre purchase exam and regardless of the pre purchase results, your deposit will not be refunded.
We handle everything for you. From preparation and marketing your horse, to screening buyers to showing your horse to prospective buyers, to arranging pre-purchase exams. We present all offers to you to consider, while answering any questions the buyers may have. Our goal is to sell your horse in a timely manner, to the best home possible and get your funds quickly. Our average marketing time is less than 60 days. All registered horses must have papers in hand and transfer ready to go.
We do not currently offer outside training but can recommend trainers.
