2017 ApHC Stallion Service Auction

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

 

Stallions eligible for the Service Auction include ApHC-registered horses and

ApHC-approved outcross stallions (Quarter Horse, Thoroughbred and Arabian).

 

Bidding is exclusively on-line and will begin December 1, 2016. Bidding starts at one-half the advertised stud fee. For stallions standing at private treaty, bidding starts at $500. Stallion service will be awarded to the highest bidder. In the event that the highest bidder does not make payment, the next highest bidder will be given the opportunity to purchase the service. The bidding period closes 6:00 p.m. Eastern Time on December 20, 2016. Any remaining unsold breeding services will be available for purchase at the posted starting bid on a first-come, first-served basis until January 31, 2017, at 6 p.m. Eastern Time.

 

 

Winning Bidder Payment of the winning bid is to be made online at the time of purchase. A 4% buyers fee will be added to the purchase price to cover transaction costs. There are no refunds from the Appaloosa Horse Club of stallion services sold in the auction.

 

The highest bidder for each stallion service will receive a certificate from the ApHC stating that the resulting foal will be eligible for the Stallion Service Auction Two-Year-Old Incentive Classes at the World Show (regular entry fees will apply). This certificate must be submitted by December 15th of the yearling year. If the “nomination certificate” is not submitted by the deadline, a late nomination fee will be assessed (see fee schedule under incentive nominations below).

 

Please note: All ancillary fees (chute fee, collection, shipping, board, etc.) are strictly between the stallion owner and mare owner.

 

 

Return Services If a mare fails to produce a foal from this breeding, the foal from a rebreeding will be eligible for the subsequent World Show Incentive Classes. In the event 1) a mare fails to conceive, 2) death of a foal at time of foaling or 3) a foal is born with a genetic defect, the owner will notify the ApHC as well as the stallion owner with proper certification from a licensed veterinarian. Any arrangements for rebreeding are strictly between the stallion owner and mare owner.

 

 

Stallion Owner For each donated service that is sold, the stallion owner will receive a certificate from the ApHC which will entitle the owner to select one get (a foal owned by the stallion owner) of said stallion from the 2017 breeding season to be nominated for the Stallion Service Auction Two-Year-Old Incentive Classes – Halter, Hunter Under Saddle and Western Pleasure. Payment of class entry fees will apply. There is no nomination fee for the stallion owner’s nominee, if the nomination is made by the December deadline. The stallion owner nomination certificate must be submitted to the ApHC by December 15th of the yearling year. If the “nomination certificate” is not submitted by the deadline, a late nomination fee will be assessed (see fee schedule under incentive nominations below).
