Classic Sport Horses
is proud to offer the option of an In-utero contract on its bred
mares. This cutting edge option offers the horse buyer an
opportunity to secure "first refusal" on a wonderful horse. The best
part is the fact that the buyer cannot lose.
So, how does it work?
The buyer reviews our mares and the stallions they have been bred
to. In some occasions we will breed our mare to the stallion of the
buyer choice (ask us about our “build a foal” program).
In order to do this we must have payment in full and
there are no refunds when the foal is born. Please contact us for
more information on this aspect of the in-utero contract.
For our regular in-utero contract, Classic Sport Horses sets a fair
market price on the foal and then offers the in-utero buyer a
reduced price as an incentive for contracting with Classic Sport
Horses. That is a set price with no negotiating. The signed price is
final. After making the choice on the match, the buyer signs the
contract and makes a 20% deposit on the baby, who is yet unborn.
That deposit goes into an interest bearing bank account and is safe.
The mare receives wonderful, regular care and Classic Sport Horses
gives periodic updates to the buyer on her progress. Our mares are
well fed and receive regular vet, dental, and farrier care. The
buyer is more than welcome to come and visit the mare at any
reasonable time. If the potential buyer backs out of this contract
before the foal hits the ground, Classic will keep 50% of this
deposit and will refund the other 50% to the buyer.
We then immediately contact the buyer when the foal
arrives. The buyer has 72 hours after the vet check to make the
final decision on the foal.
We cannot guarantee the foal's sex or color...you decide during that
72 hour window if this is the horse for you.
The buyer can either come in person to see the
foal or we will email photos and video. If the buyer decides to take
the foal, they have two options.
They can pay in full or we offer a payment plan. With regard to the
payment plan the buyer may pay for the foal in full at the 72 hour
mark. Or they may pay off the foal by 14 days prior to post- weaning
and take it with them or they have up to 12 months to pay without
interest. The foal must remain with Classic until it is paid off.
There is no penalty for early payoff and no interest is charged on
payments. During that time of post weanling, the buyer will have to
pay for board, feed and care. We can bill each month if the buyer
chooses this option. Prior to weaning the buyer will pay for
farrier, worming and any vet care. Classic will not charge for
board and feed.
If the buyer decides to purchase the foal it is up to them to
purchase insurance to protect that foal. Classic Sport Horses will
do everything in its power to ensure the foal's safety before it is
weaned or if it stays during the payment plan. During the time
Classic Sport Horses has the foal, the foal will be imprinted, learn
to lead, trailer, stand for vet and farrier, be exposed to clippers,
baths and more and have a good groundwork foundation. After weaning
and if the foal is staying with Classic, there will be a monthly
reasonable board and training charge. Each buyer will also receive
a halter and lead rope with their purchase. The foals will receive
regular vet, dental and farrier care.
If the buyer does not want the foal within the first 72 hours after
the vet check, Classic Sport Horses refunds the full 20% deposit
plus any interest that may have accumulated. No hard feelings. This
just allows us to freely market the foal. The buyer is more than
welcome to come back and purchase the foal outright if they change
their mind. The price however does go back up to the fair market
asking price and the ability to return to the in-utero price is not
We accept credit cards through PayPal.
Classic also offers the option of “foal kindergarten” and those
foals who we sell receive a lower rate for training/board then
outside horses. We strive very hard to work with the buyer. We will
not breed, raise or sell any horse we would not want for ourselves.
