The guarantee on offer to buyers is double :
1) All the horses at auction are guaranteed an auction price against the risk of death for 60 days, by our
partner GRAS-SAVOYE – HIPCOVER. Said guarantee may be extended immediately over time, without
incurring administration costs. The cost of extension shall then be borne by the new acquirer.
2) The horses are guaranteed for three months against all defects affecting their substantial qualities,
not indicated in the veterinary file and affecting their sporting use. This guarantee is applicable on 100%
of the purchase price with a ceiling of 100.000 euros.
The horses are physically examined by the Sales Vet. when they are selected and deemed suitable for
Upon their arrival in the sales establishment, the horses will have been clinically reviewed by the Vet Dr
and this examination will have been filmed. All of these elements, as well as the film, form part of the
veterinary file that is made available to buyers and their veterinary advisors. We strongly urge you to
take note thereof as the guarantee is applicable only to elements that are not indicated in these files.
The guarantee’s implementation is covered by an explanation that may be obtained on simple request
from the secretariat.
We considered this significant effort made with regard to buyers necessary to “secure” as much as to
possibly make their investment and reinforce the air of trust that must reign over our sales at auction.
The purchase of a young horse in view of his training remains a risky undertaking as in any sport and
activity involving living organisms and we do not claim to be able, one day, to offer the same guarantees
as a car manufacturer or estate agent.
The education and enhancement of a young horse will always require intuition, patience, know-how and
little bit of success : this is the purchasers’ role and they will receive their just reward when the results
are good !
