Hay, Straw, and Feed

All consignments to the Mid-Atlantic Sale are required to be registered. The sale requires that all original registrations and transfers be in place before the animal goes into the sale ring.

All horses will be transferred to the person indicated on the sales slip. Cost to transfer ownership of the consignments to new owners will be deducted from the sale proceeds. Title passes at the fall of the auctioneer’s hammer, at which time all risk and responsibility for the horse passes to the buyer.

All consignments must have a new halter and lead rope, otherwise the sale committee will supply one and charge the seller for the cost. No horse will be allowed to leave the barns without a checkout slip indicating full payment. All horses must be removed from the barns by midnight Saturday evening, the last day of the sale. All sellers are responsible for their horses up until the time that the gavel falls, after which the buyer is in full responsibility.

Sales Tax
Horses sold are subject to the 6% Pennsylvania sales tax. This tax must be paid by the buyer in addition to the purchase price, unless the sale of the horse qualified for exemption under the rules and regulations of the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue and the buyer furnishes the sale certificates of exemption in the form approved by the Department of Revenue. Exemption forms with instructions will be available in the sales office and may be executed by the buyer at time of settlement.
