If required, we offer the service of coordinating commercial transport for your horse. This means we will find a reputable hauler to transport the Horse you purchased (at your expense) and organize when the horse will be picked up from our property, and dropped off at your property. We charge $30/hr for this service. In order to effectively provide this service we need to be able to keep in contact with you, the buyer, throughout this process. If we cannot get hold of you over the course of 24 hours we will cease and desist any coordination we have started with you. You will then need to either find a hauler on your own time, or contact the hauler we have set up to haul your Horse. ADDITIONAL TRAINING: All of our horses (excluding foals on their dams) for sale can have more ground work training put on them for an additional fee of $30/hour. This excludes foals that have been purchased before weaning as all foals purchased before weaning are sold as halter broke, and have minimal ground work training. We do have access to a trainer who can professionally start horses under saddle for a fee per training session, please inquire. All fees will be due immediately. The Horse will not leave our property until all fees are paid in full or Certified Cheques have cleared.
