Valuating Most Breeds and Disciplines

Comprehensive appraisals

Due diligence

Good judgement


You Can Count On Us

We bring over 35 years of experience in the equine industry and a keen perception of the variables that are critical to an objective valuation.  We firmly believe in ethical business practices  and for each evaluation we perform a rigorous examination of the dynamics that affect value.

All evaluations result from meticulous research. Naturally, we conduct a thorough examination of the horse, including its conformation, gait, bloodline, performance  records and where necessary may utilize veterinary exams and statements from trainers or other experts.  Read More

Keeping in mind the purpose of the appraisal, we scrutinize other  determinants and factor these variables into our due diligence.  For example, economic conditions fluctuate, trends in the equine industry change, and regional differences may be a factor.
