For the entry of foals please ensure your registration applications go in as early as possible to the WPCS so that they can get your passports processed in time for the Sale – they must be with the WPCS at least four weeks prior to the Sale otherwise the Society will not guarantee their return in time for the Sale.
Your foal must be FOUR CALENDAR months old by the sale date.
Please also note the following statements:
All faults, unsoundnesses and vices should be declared by the seller including the fact that a lot has suffered from sweet itch, or has a sarcoid or sarcoid-like lesion.
Please ensure there is no possibility of your ‘uncovered’ filly/ mare being in foal.
Mares / fillies will not be described as ‘covered’ in the sales catalogue unless a signed service certificate is sent along with the entry. Similarly broodmares will not be stated as ‘scanned’ or ‘tested’ in foal in the catalogue unless the entry is accompanied by veterinary evidence confirming the pregnancy with the relevant date on (in other words, statements will not be made unless they are supported).
Vendors will be charged a standard commission of 6% + VAT. There is a minimum commission of £10 + VAT per lot. Payout to the vendor will be in 21 days after the Sale (subject to our conditions of sale).
Unless written instructions are lodged with the Auctioneers, lots will be sold without reserve.
All Private Sales made on the Sale Day must be booked through the Auctioneers.
No lots 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. Please do not remove their rump stickers until they have left the sale premises.
Ridden lots will show their paces and ability in the trial areas. It is hoped that all vendors will make full use of the trial areas and jumps to show their horses to the best advantage. Trial rides for any prospective purchaser may be offered at the vendor’s discretion, on the understanding that all risk and responsibility for any incidents or accident are at the risk of the trial rider and not with the vendor, vendor's agent or the Auctioneers.
All horses and ponies are sold subject to veterinary examination unless sold for £500 or less, or otherwise stated.
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 £80 (including VAT).
Purchasers must notify the office that they require an examination within 1 hour of the time of purchase and receive a vetting slip to enable examination to take place.
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.
It is emphasised that the facilities are not available to undertake a full veterinary examination but part veterinary examination should take place. This part examination should include examination for sarcoids or sarcoid-like lesions, which can only be complained about on the day of sale. Only Lots that are examined by the panel on the Sale Day have an extended period of 2 working days (including Saturdays) to enable complete veterinary examination.
All lots not examined by the veterinary surgeon on the Sale Day will not be covered by a veterinary warranty.
