Appraisals of  Most Breeds and Disciplines

There are several types of equine appraisals.  Some appraisals require more time, in-depth research, or verifications than others.   Because each situation is as individual as the horse itself we would prefer to discuss your situation and the horse with you.  This will ensure you receive the appropriate type of appraisal for you and your horse's needs. This determines the fee category.

One of the most significant factors affecting the cost of appraisal is your use of the appraisal.  Discussing your needs and any time restraints you may have provides us with a better understanding of what we must do to provide an impartial and timely evaluation.   

Professional Equine Appraisals provides an estimate before work begins.

A deposit may be required.

Depending on the location of the horse additional expenses for travel may be incurred.

Discounts may be applied when our appraisal services are utilized for more than one horse at the same location.



What is the purpose of the appraisal?

  • buy from or sell to a specific market

  • buy adequate insurance for the performance level, protection of investment, etc.

  • import or export a prospect

  • import or export an older, made horse

  • litigation: ie. divorce, contract dispute, 

  • liquidation of assets

  • bankruptcy

  • tax audit

  • donation to a school or therapeutic program

The cost of an appraisal can pay for itself.  The valuation may be time sensitive due to economics and trends in the horse industry.
