While the deadline is July 15th, we highly recommend that you get all of your information and visual content submitted as soon as possible. This allows us more time to fully advertise and promote your horse.
We have all been to horse sales all over and understand what type of horses will bring the best dollar. The Fall Round Up Horse Sale encourages consignors to aim for these qualities. We are looking for proven, gentle, 4 years and older geldings but will consider others upon approval. To avoid any ‘sifting’ after approval and to inspire our buyers with confidence we require pre-purchase exams, including X-Rays upon consignment.
Why we ask for a pre-purchase exam including X-Rays upon consignment:
Our team is striving for top quality and having spent many years in the market as a buyer and a seller we realize that soundness guarantees are worth a lot. Any buyer will stretch their purse for a horse knowing that the horse is healthy and sound. In other words; having a pre-purchase exam on hand will reduce a buyer’s risk.
It will also ease your stress and you’ll be able to promote with confidence a sound horse that is going to pass a pre purchase exam. It will also save a lot of time and riding on a horse that isn’t going to make it through the sale for soundness
Requirements for the Pre Purchase Exam:
Overall Assessment of horse, Flexion Tests and a set of X-RAYS.
X-Rays required are for the FRONT FEET- lateral (level shot on block should be able to see P1, P2, P3) Navicular: 60 degree view and Skyline view.
All guarantees to the soundness of the horse and that readability of the horse is represented honestly is between consignor and buyer. Fall Round Up Horse Sale, Joe Loveridge, Cagnie Schumann, Malaika Dixon or any agents, employees or volunteers at the Sale will not be liable for any misrepresentation.
Reports and x-rays will be made available online.
Completed consignments are due by Aug 15th to keep your place in the sale. However, we do recommend getting them done earlier so we can promote your horses and use your images for marketing purposes.
Horses will be required to be seen by our vet on Oct 14th at check in. He will give them a look over, trot them on gravel and make an assessment. If a horse needs to be pulled from the Sale, consignor will forfeit the consignors fee. Random blood will be pulled for the integrity of the Sale. Health and Coggins Required for all horses along with a brand inspection upon check in.
The sale will take place at the Wasatch Event Center. We are currently working hard to create an outside mountain trail course where you can show off your horse in a real live environment. We will let you know what to expect of the trail course once this is determined. Streaming of the Sale will be done live, online bidding will be available, along with limited phone bidding. We are aiming to record and replay the trail course to allow people the opportunity to watch if unable to come to the sale. We will also have an open preview the morning of the sale to show them off one more time in an arena setting. Cattle will be onsite to show horses on.
