|Buyer Obligations, Guarantees, and Suggestions
Carolina Horse Company is proud to offer our Bidders a 72 hour
SOUNDNESS GUARANTEE on horses sold for $1000 or more!
Horses sold in our auction as SOUND and for $1000 or more are guaranteed for 72 hours!
This soundness guarantee means no crib, no weave, no lameness, no parrot mouth or
monkey mouth (overbite or underbite), sound of wind, and sight with no impairment in both
eyes. If you purchase a horse sold sound for $1000 or more and find any of the above
issues, please contact us within 72 hours. ***Please note that failure of a flexion test alone
without otherwise visible lameness and/or x-rays is NOT sufficient to declare a horse
unsound. Conformation flaws such as toeing in or out are also not an unsoundness***
WHAT IS NOT COVERED! We do allow horses to be sold outside the ring here at
Carolina Horse Company, however, if a horse is purchased anywhere other than in the
ring, there is NO GUARANTEE of any kind! In other words, if you want the guarantee, you
need to be the high bidder in the ring! If you buy a horse before, during, or after the sale
anywhere but IN THE SALE RING, you own it for better or worse. We cannot guarantee
outside sales as we have no idea what was said between the parties involved.
Horses sold for less than $1000 are sold "as is" with no guarantees from Carolina Horse
Company. Likewise, regardless of selling price, if a seller declares the horse "as is" or
"selling right there in the dust" there is no guarantee.
Finally, be a smart consumer! We expect our consignors to represent their horses
honestly. We also expect our buyers to exercise good judgement. Get back in those barns
and SPEAK with the consignors BEFORE the sale! Examine the horses you are interested
in and watch them work. Ask questions! Listen to announcements in the sale ring as each
horse comes in so that there are no surprises!
Finally, when you bring your new horse home, do remember that a horse sale is full of
horses that have traveled great distances and then congregated in a relatively small area
(just like a horse show). When you send your kids off to school, they frequently come
home with a variety of viruses. It is much the same with horses. It is ALWAYS a good idea
to quarantine ANY new horse from ANY SOURCE for 21 days. This is a recommendation
that our veterinarian makes to all who purchase horses whether privately or from a sale
and a recommendation that we make to all of our buyers.
