Stallions 4 years old and over need to hold an appropriate stallion licence. 1, 2 and 3 year old colts do not require a stallion licence.
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.
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 will be a minimum commission of £10 + VAT per lot. Pay out to the vendor will be in 21 days after the Sale, subject to the 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 Auctioneer's Representative.
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 £1,000 (£500 for ponies 14.3hh and under) or less, or otherwise stated.
Warranties as to Veterinary Correctness cease to have effect once the lot has been removed from the Sale Premises. A Panel of Veterinary Surgeons will be pleased to examine Lots on behalf of Buyers. All lots should be vetted for eyes, heart, action, age and ascertainment of catalogue descriptions for a fee of £200.00 including VAT, payable in advance of the vetting, and paid directly to the vet by either cash or cheque. The examination will include blood being taken. The Veterinary Surgeon’s decision that a lot be returnable is binding on both parties. With the important proviso that if any lot fails the Veterinary Examination the seller has the right to request a second opinion by the Chief Veterinary Surgeon at a fee of £25.00 including VAT. His opinion shall be binding on both seller and buyer.
Buyers must notify the office that they require examination within 1 hour of the time of purchase.
Sellers must check the veterinary board displayed in the Sales Office to see if their lot must be presented for veterinary examination. Sellers should not leave the Sale Site without first checking the vetting board.
All lots not examined by the veterinary surgeon on the sale day will not be covered by a veterinary warranty.
