It is one more advantage you have with us – we do not go on a wild goose chase and waste your and/or the sellers time.

Only complete information helps you to evaluate the horse as to his background and the suitability for you. We encourage you to be able to talk to people and get to know them and their horses. To see the horses is the most important part of your visit. If a horse interests you, see if it fits. Feel the horse, take your time! The seller should be prepared to spent time with you and that takes communications and appointments. They should be made in advance – though many stables are flexible and able to accommodate on short notice. But we want you to see as many horses as possible, on a for you comfortable schedule, and so preparation is important.
Introducing you to sincere, reputable and knowledgeable horse people
talks about horses over a beer
We are here in Germany and have the opportunity to see horses every day. Our very good connections with fine breeders, trainers and associations are your advantage. Since we are in contact and have done business with a great number of horse people, we know about their reliability, sincerity and the kind of quality horses they offer. And, the seller knows us and appreciates our work too. For some sellers it is very difficult to communicate with clients from abroad. And sometimes meetings are a little frustrating. How can one describe a horse and find out if it is the type a client is interested in? Is a client that comes sincere, reliable, trust worthy? Some good seller have become a little sceptical and like reassurance too. Here we help for communications work for seller and buyer! And, the seller knows, when they offer attractive horses and prices, we like to stay in touch for more business, with more informed and serious clients. With us you see better horses at attractive prices than when you are on your own. Because of our connections, we can show you fitting horses in a concentrated, organized and effective way. You save time and money! And, we like you to meet with people and get to know them too. It gives you an interesting look at the German horse business and often for our clients a deep insight into the passion that really makes the German Sport horse so dominant on the world marked.
Help with negotiations
When you found your horse and you do want to buy it, we are happy to help you negotiate the details of a purchase. First is the price. We want you to get the best price possible. Since we know the going rate for a particular quality and kind of horse, we can advise you reliable if the price for a horse is realistic, low or high. We work for you and only in that sense for the seller. We also help you with conditions of the sale, and it is important not to have any misunderstandings between you and the seller. So we do every thing possible for you to get the horse you chose under conditions that satisfy you! We advise our clients to pay the price agreed on for their horse to the seller directly. That brings transparency into buying horses, for the buyer and the seller. It assures that you pay what the seller wants - and you agreed - and nothing else. Our commission is paid separately and also directly.
Arranging for veterinary exams
Before you actionably buy a horse you want to know if it is healthy. Only a extensive veterinary exam can give you certainty. Many horses have already been vetted and have ex-rays and that is an advantage, it gives a first impression. It also makes a comparison possible with new ex-rays if old ones exist and gives an even more reliable picture. When we ask a seller about the health of the horse he offers, we want to get truthful information about it. It makes absolutely no sense to fall in love with a horse that does not pass a thorough vet examination. If you have chosen a horse you like, we will arrange an examination for you to attend if time allows. It gives you the opportunity to see what is done and ask all the questions you might have. If you can not attend a vet exam personally, we will attend and of cause, the results are send to your vet at home. Only when you are satisfied, will we be too. Insurance companies will accept a complete vet exam as well. Certain exams are necessary too for exporting a horse. Depending where the future home of the horse will be, we will ask for the appropriate exams. Even though an examination can only state the health of a horse at that moment and can not guaranty the future, you want to start of with a healthy horse. It will always be hart to find a horse with absolutely nothing to be found. Important is the evaluation as to the effect and importance of a finding on the purpose you want to use the horse for. In any case, the price for an complete examination is a good investment into the future with your horse. With many seller we arrange an agreement that they pay for the standard examination if the result is not satisfactory. We do not want our clients to spend their money on vet costs for horses that do not pass. It also encourages sellers to only offer horses that are of good health.
Helping with money transfers
Money transfers are no problem and everyday occurrence in modern banking today. We recommend you speak with your bank before a trip to Germany. You can find out how your bank handles transfers and inform them that you might plan to have funds transferred in the near future. It often helps because not all local banks transfer money internationally every day. If you contact your bank before hand, they can prepare and make sure the funds you want to send are available. Funds are usually wired and arrive in Germany in the account of the seller within a few days after you order them. So paying for horses you buy in Germany is uncomplicated and easy.
Arranging transportation for your horse to your own stable
For many clients the transport of a horse over a long distance seems a complicated and for the horse very exhausting undertaking. Experience has show that with modern transportation and the extensive care given to the horses during the transport, horses arrive in good health and condition to the buyer. Air transport is often less strain for the horse then a lengthy transport by road. The companies that specialize in flying horses worldwide have lots of experience and take very good care of the horses. The comfort for your horses is no less then that for horses that travel often to international competition. So, the transport of your horse should not be a great concern when you work with a reputable company. We help you with rates and companies that we have had the best experiences with.

We are very much aware, that to recommend a horse that the client has not seen is very difficult. It can only come to a fine match when all is done very conscientiously and in the interest of the client. It is easier when we know our clients from previous visits and know exactly what they are looking for. Then we give them the information on a horse that we feel is exceptional and would be very interesting to them. In the last couple of years, horses have been offered for sale on the internet and to send videos has become very popular. If all is well, it can be possible, to have initial information from witch a good buy may result.
The difficulties just surfing the net is, knowing who you are dealing with. Sometimes it will give you correct information, but often it will not! Horses on videos, that are in reality not for sale at all. To send videos, sometimes even without the owner knowing about it, is often used, just to get potential buyers interested. From Europe, out into the world this is a special problem, easy to understand. Here, fine horses sell often fast. By the time a video of a particular horse is made, put online, for responses waited, consultations, and perhaps even for a client to come and see “that” horse, it will often be sold. We can help you to avoid situations like that and check on the horses here to give a realistic report to an interested buyer.
