Frequently Asked Questions
Can you help with delivery?
In most cases, I can deliver the horses I sell for a small fee (fuel money). If I'm not available, I can help you find someone else who is!
Do you offer payment plans?
Yes! I offer payment plans on all horses. These payment plans are flexible and depend on what you can comfortably pay each month. There is no fee and no interest. I typically like payment plans to go on no longer than six months. In most cases, your horse can go home with you after you make the first payment or put down a deposit.
Can I schedule a time to try a horse?
Absolutely! Please call, email, or text me to set up an appointment. I'm busy, but have a very flexible schedule. I would appreciate it if you have a date and time in mind when you contact me. Usually I can make it work, and it makes the process simpler.
Can you train my horse?
Unfortunately, no! I am only one person and I don't have time to train my horses as well as outside horses.
Do you accept trades?
Typically, no. But in some cases, I will accept partial trades (you give me a horse and cash, and I give you a horse). I do this to make a living, not to trade horses. Take a look at my available horses and sold horses. If your horse isn't similar, I probably don't want it. Sorry!
Can I get a pre-purchase exam done on the horse I'm interested in?
Absolutely! I welcome pre-purchase exams on all horses. A deposit is required to hold the horse while the appointment is set up. If the horse fails the exam, the deposit will be refunded. If the horse passes, the deposit will go towards the purchase price of the horse. In most cases, I can help transport the horse to the veterinary clinic (this usually helps to get an appointment faster).
Are your horses up to date on vaccines, coggins, etc?
Every one of my horses is fully vetted before they leave my property. They have a new coggins pulled if the one they came with is more than a few months old, are fully vaccinated, and have their teeth floated if needed. They also have a fecal run and/or are dewormed. My horses are visited by the farrier every 5 weeks.
What grain do you feed your horses?
I feed oats! Most of my horses have to transition off their normal grain when they come to me, and back onto a different grain when the leave fo their new home. Oats are simple and easily digestible and make the transition easy. They can also be found at any feed store, making it convenient if clients want to buy a bag to transition their horse slowly, or if they want to continue the horse on oats.
What payment types do you accept?
I accept cash, check made out to Polished Horse Sales, money order, PayPal (firstname.lastname@example.org), CashApp ($MFTslide), Venmo (@Mandy-Rhodes-8), and Apple Pay (941-544-4472). When using PayPal, please select "sending to friends and family" unless you send extra to cover the fee they charge when you select "paying for goods and services." Thank you!
