In order to PPE a horse with us a $500 or 10% deposit is required ( which ever is greater) to hold the horse for the PPE. During this time the horse will remain listed , but won't be sold to anyone else. Three hours maximum is allotted for a PPE on horses priced at $25,000 and under. After 3 hours the buyer will be billed at $50 an hour, rounded up to every half hour for the seller's time. Horses priced from $26,000 to $50,000 are allotted up to 5 hours for a PPE. After that the buyer will be billed at $50 and hour for seller's time.
If the horse is not purchased after a PPE the buyer must pay the seller, or the hauler per horse at $50 trip fee plus $1.25 loaded mile for having hauled the horse(s) to the vet for buyer. This must be paid out of the deposit.
If the buyer uses credit card or debit card for the deposit there will be a 3.5% fee added. This fee is what the credit/debit card company takes to use their system. If the deposit is refunded , this fee will not be refundable with the deposit.
Buyers must provide proof that the horse didn't pass a PPE. Which means that the PPE must be released and made available before the deposit can be released back to the buyer.
All deposits are non-refundable. The deposit is only refundable if the horse fails the PPE and the paperwork is released to the seller as proof.
