IMPORTING FROM EUROPE
- How it works -
You'd like to import a horse but don't know where to start. Ian can make the process uncomplicated and enjoyable.
STEP 1: GETTING IN CONTACT
First you get in contact to let us know what sort of horse you're looking for. The more information you provide the better. We will start searching suitable horses for you. Based on your inquiry we will select horses which will meet the requirements you have set. We can start searching maximum 2 weeks in advance of your trip, since some horses sell very quick.
STEP 2: PLANNING THE TRIP
Book your trip and we'll then arrange the route to each stable to try the horses. We suggest staying at least 3 days so that there is plenty of time to try the horses multiple times. The more you know the horse - the better!
STEP 3: TRYING THE HORSES
Time to meet the horses. We'll go to each barn and try the horses together. Ian is more than happy to ride the horse first for you if it makes you feel more comfortable having a another "strange" rider ride first. We then make a "short list" and return to try the horses you liked multiple times.
STEP 4: PRE-PURCHASE EXAMINATION
When we've found your new unicorn we'll arrange a 5 stage pre-purchase vetting. We will assist you with arranging the vetting at the clinic of your choice. If you're not sure which vet to use we have a very good selection of international vets that we can rely on. All veterinary findings are then communicated to your own vet. We can arrange that the vet check is videoed if it's not possible for us to be there.
STEP 5: TRANSPORT
We'll help you organizing the export papers and transport of your new horse to any destination in the world. From door to door Ian will ensure this process is stress free for both you and your horse.
