NO CREDIT CARDS will be accepted as a form of payment. Cheques will only be accepted from regular clients who are very well known to the auctioneers due to the new passport legislation unless a Bankers Reference has been provided. Money Laundering rules apply at all our auctions and prospective buyers who wish to settle accounts in cash should contact the sales office for details.

Ponies will be sold in Pounds (£) Sterling, in addition a 10% (plus VAT) Buyer's Premium will be added to all purchaser’s accounts. If the entry is marked VAT then a further 20% will be added to the hammer price.

On top of the purchase price £20 will be added on behalf of the SPSBS which is the current transfer of ownership fee.

In the case of a pony being exported, the new owner will be responsible for paying the export fee of £50. An International Pony Movement Certificate will be forwarded directly to the foreign Stud-Book Society concerned.
