Securing a Horse/Deposits
1. A deposit will secure the horse for 7 days and take them off the market to other potential buyers, within that time the purchaser has the option to arrange a vet check (if preferred) and/or transport. Should there be a delay with organising the above, we will extend the length of time as long as there is proof of transport and increase of deposit amount.
 2. Deposits are non refundable , we will only refund the deposit should the horse fail to meet veterinary standards and has been deemed as ‘ not fit for your purpose’ by a qualified veterinarian. Refunds only apply in this circumstance during a pre purchase vet inspection and not once the horse has left our premises. 
Upon the Seller’s receipt of the Purchase Price (as cleared funds) 
3. Upon funds being released from purchaser to seller , ownership of the Horse shall pass from the Seller to the Purchaser
4.The Seller strongly recommends that the Purchaser adequately insures the Horse (preferably covering third party liability, death, theft, veterinary fees and loss of use) prior to or immediately upon payment.
5.  Responsibility for any loss, damage or injury whatsoever caused by the Horse shall pass to the Purchaser.
6. The Seller will release possession of the Horse to the Buyer or his/her employee/agent together with passport and a legal binding sales contract 
7.  The Purchaser (or another person designated by the Purchaser) in coordination with the Seller will arrange for the transportation of the Horse from the Seller’s premises, (at the Seller’s and the Purchaser’s convenience) at the Purchaser’s expense. Purchaser must notify Seller if they need seller to assist with arranging transport
8.  Where the Horse is not collected immediately upon ownership of the Horse passing from the Seller to the Purchaser, the Purchaser agrees to indemnify the Seller against all costs incurred in caring for the Horse (veterinary costs etc.) until the horse is collected by the Purchaser or his employee/agent.  Any loss, damage or injury whatsoever caused by the Horse whilst the Horse is at the Seller’s premises awaiting collection by the Purchaser shall be the Purchaser’s responsibility. Livery will be charged at the current full livery rate 5 days after ownership has transferred. This allows new owners 5 days to arrange delivery / collection for the horse without any livery charges applied by MSJ Equestrian

11.  The Purchaser acknowledges that the Horse is open to veterinary inspection, which the Purchaser may instruct a vet to perform at his discretion. In accepting or declining the opportunity to have the Horse inspected by a vet, the Purchaser waives all rights to bring a claim against the Seller in respect of any matter revealed or which should have been revealed by the vet during that inspection.
12.  The Purchaser is satisfied that the Horse is suitable for its intended purpose.
13.  The Purchaser accepts that horses are unpredictable by nature and that horse riding is a high risk sport. The Seller is unable to predict how any horse will mature or develop in new ownership however the Seller will provide full details of the Horse’s routine and current exercise/feed/tack requirements in order that the Horse has the best opportunity of settling into his new home.
14. If the purchaser wishes to return the horse, this will fall under the consumers rights act 2015 and therefore MSJ Equestrian will allow 28 days from purchase date to return the horse if it falls under the terms within the law.
