Sellers who wish to avail of the marketing medium of Nagero Sport Horses on their website Nagero Irish Sport Horses; http://www.irishsporthorses.ie should note the following.

UK purchasers can then expect their horse to be delivered within 7 days maximum – it really is as simple as that. Where a deposit is paid to hold the horse and the remainder of the monies are not forwarded the deposit will be retained and forwarded to the Seller. You must not sell the horse to somebody else whilst it is being held on deposit.

We strive to ensure that all horses and ponies on www.irishsporthorses.ie are honestly described and fit for purpose. This differentiates us from large classified horse sites and provides security and continuity for what we are offering our potential clients. We therefore implore you to describe your horse accurately and declare any vices or bad habits. Nagero Sport Horses offer buyers the chance to return a horse or pony that belongs to them if the purchaser is not happy with if they have bought sight unseen and to find them an exchange but have had to do this is rarely when an animal is accurately described. This is not an option when a horse or pony has been tried and viewed here in the yard although we do our utmost to provide customer satisfaction.

VERIFIED HORSES

Some horses sold on http://www.irishsporthorses.ie will be verified. Verified will mean that it is owned by Nagero Sport Horses and they have dealt with it on a day to day basis so we can stand behind our description of its ride-ability. We can Do this for private sellers if their horse or pony is booked in for a sales livery. Please contact us for more information. Every horse must be open to 5* vetting and/or X-rays if requested by a potential buyer at their expense. Conformational defects and lumps or bumps or behaviour issues should also be disclosed. In our experience, as long as a potential buyer knows about an issue it does not necessarily preclude a sale going ahead. Non- disclosure however, is more than likely to result in bad feeling and publicity which ultimately affects sales. We suggest that you take a snapshot of affiliated results; do not say a horse is jumping 1.35m when its results show that it is knocking fences at 1m! People are not that green!

SELLING PRICE

Please do not over-inflate the price of your horse and base the price on those being obtained in other Countries. This website is offering trust and credibility to buyers to promote the Irish Sport Horse and offers an exciting new medium for sellers. This will not work if unrealistic prices are being asked for the horses. Above all else, make sure that your description of your horse is brutally honest. No sale is worse than a sale made on false promises that cannot be fulfilled. This is an opportunity to make selling easier and ultimately more cost effective for both sellers and buyers.

VIDEO

A picture paints a thousand words. Although potential buyers have the choice to visit your premises and try your horse, this is not always necessary where the horse is EXACTLY as described and if the video content is good. Try to take the video as you would view a horse yourself if you were going to buy it. Check out the video options for sellers page for further help on this.

THE RIGHT FOR THE BUYER TO CANCEL

If a horse or pony is advertised for a dealer and the purchaser of one of their horses wishes to cancel (or are considering cancelling) a product or service they have ordered through us, they will be liable for the cost of returning the horse if they have changed their mind and had not come to try the horse. This is covered under Distance Selling Regulations. If they have come to your yard and tried and viewed the horse they purchased then the only reason for return can be due to not fit for purpose or misdescribed. They have to pay for the return transport as they have activated a ‘service agreement’ with the transport company. They can either hold the horse themselves until you can find them another one more suitable and they can then swap the horse and only pay for the original horse’s return travel or return the horse straight away and if it is still deemed fit for purpose Nagero Sport Horses can re-market it for you. In this case they have to pay the return travel and 10% of the purchase price to cover livery fees while the horse is waiting to be sold, although Nagero Sport Horses will market the horse for at no charge until it is sold. This is not an option if the horse has a vice that was not originally declared in which case the buyer will be put in touch directly with the seller and Nagero Sport Horses will have no further party to the dispute if it has been falsely described as fit for purpose or has a residual condition that has not been declared, you will be liable as the Seller.
