Contract of Sale for Horse or Pony

When purchasing a horse, it behooves you to ensure that the promises made by the seller about its condition are true. While nebulous features such as its health can be hard to quantify, solid statements of fact regarding the pedigree and medical history can be considered conditions of the sale, and you want the security that comes from knowing that the seller has signed a contract confirming the truth of these.

You may not want to pay for a lawyer to draw up a contract, however, and that’s where our template legal contract can come in handy. This contract for the purchase of a horse is legally approved for personal, non-business purchases, and very easy to fill out. All you have to do is enter the details of the specific sale where prompted and have both parties sign, and you can rest assured that you are protected by the relevant regulations.

This contract specifically disclaims any guarantee about the condition or health of the horse. It is the responsibility of the buyer to inspect the animal to his satisfaction and to ask any questions which he considers necessary. Bear in mind that in a trade or business sale, these clauses may be unenforceable.
