Vendors will be charged a standard commission of 6% + VAT, with a minimum commission of £50 +VAT on sold lots. In addition a 0.75% plus VAT sales levy fund will be deducted i.e. 90p in every £100.00. Proceeds of the sale less deductions are normally forwarded to vendors 14 days after the sale.


Unless written instructions are lodged with the Auctioneers, lots will be sold without reserve.

Private Sales

All Private Sales made on the Sale Day must be booked through the Auctioneers.


No lot will be allowed to leave the Showground until a Pass has been obtained from the Sales Office. In the event of lot labels missing from lots these animals will not be allowed to leave until identified to the satisfaction of the Auctioneers Representative.

Veterinary Procedure

All horses and ponies are sold subject to veterinary examination unless sold for £1000 (£800 for ponies 14.3hh and under) or less, or otherwise stated by the auctioneer at time of sale. However, vendors are recommended (but not required) to provide a pre-sale veterinary certificate if they so wish. The pre-sale veterinary certificate does not constitute any warranty and all horses are still subject to post sale veterinary examination on the day of sale if required by the purchaser. The pre-sale certificate can be obtained via the Auctioneers and will only be accepted if it is completed within a 14 day period prior to sale. The cost and disclosure of this certificate is the responsibility of the vendor.

Veterinary Surgeons appointed by the Auctioneers are available through the Auctioneers Office to examine horses on behalf of Vendors and Purchasers. In the case of Purchasers, they are prepared to examine horses on their behalf as to whether they are correct under the Conditions of Sale. The Veterinary Surgeon’s decision that a horse be returnable is binding on both parties. All horses should be vetted for eyes, heart, action, age and ascertainment of catalogue descriptions for a fee of £200.00 including VAT. If any horse fails the Veterinary Examination the vendor has the right to request a second opinion by the Chief Veterinary Surgeon at a fee of £25.00 including VAT. His opinion will be binding on both Vendor and Purchaser

Vendors must check the veterinary board displayed in the Sales Office to see if their horse/pony must be presented for veterinary examination. Vendors should not leave the Sale Site without first checking the vetting board.

Horse Passports

The Horse Passports (England) Regulations 2004 state that ‘after 28th February 2005 no person shall sell a horse without a passport’. It is the vendors responsibility to produce a valid and correct passport for their entry, which will be surrendered to the auctioneers on arrival at the sale ground. This passport will be given to the new purchaser or returned to the vendor if not sold.


All entries must have been vaccinated within 6 months of the sale date.

Delivery and Stabling

All lots will have stabling available from 5.00pm until gates close at 9.00pm on the day prior to sale and from 7.30am on the day of sale. Straw is provided, however vendors must provide water buckets, mangers and all fodder. We regret stabling is not available for horses not entered in the sale.
