Pleasure Gait's Terms for Horse Sales
Our general terms for selling horses:
25% of the purchase price is required to hold any horse for sale.
The 25% will be applied as the down payment and it is non-refundable, however if you decide you do not want the horse, your down payment can be applied to any other horse we offer for sale. We keep all horses until they have been paid in full and after one
month from the day we receive the down payment we charge
$4.00 per day for board. The first month's board is free. This is to give buyers time to make shipping arrangements. Young foals for sale: Board is free on foals age 5 months and younger.
Please note: We can not and do not hold horses from an inquiry or email alone. Horses are only held once the 25% down payment has been received. Please don't feel you have a claim to first rights simply because you have written or called about a horse.
There are times when we have more than one customer interested in the same horse at the same time. As a rule, we do not inform interested parties that someone else has also inquired or is inquiring about the same horse. Why? Because it sounds too much like high pressure salesmanship. In these cases, the first person to meet the full asking price and make the 25% down payment is considered to be the buyer of the horse. If we receive a deposit on a horse that has already been sold to another party then we will gladly refund the deposit.
Thank you for your understanding.
We do accept personal checks, but all checks must clear our bank before horses leave our farm. There is a $25. bounced check fee charge applied to any check that does not clear our bank. We also accept credit card payments through PayPal. If you are paying by check then please mail it to:
