Why Should Your Horse Be Appraised?


1. The loss of any horse is heartbreaking.  The loss of a valuable horse can be financially hard also.  Horses should be appraised frequently to insure the owner receives full value during a casualty loss claim.  Consult a certified tax advisor for more information.

2. A current and up-to-date horse appraisal is needed to insure the animal is covered for the actual value.  Don't make the mistake of having to settle for what the insurance company deems the horse is worth.

3. Insurance companies will have their own equine appraiser.  Be prepared - have your horse appraised by a certified equine appraiser of your own choice and keep it current.  You may not be protected by the "agreed value" rider on an insurance policy. 

4. Love is grand - until it ends up in divorce court.  Horses are considered part of your marital property.  A certified equine appraiser can help to insure the value assigned to your horse is correct.

5. Be prepared to help your horse find a good home should something catastrophic happen to you.  Horses are considered part of your estate, having an up-to-date equine appraisal can help provide your executor with an accurate value for your horse.

6. In this economy bankruptcy is common.  Horses can become valuable assets if you have documentation of value supported by a certified equine appraiser.

7.  In some instances highly valued horses can be used as collateral for loans.  A certified equine appraisal can help support your effort to qualify for that much needed loan.

8. Should you and your horse become involved in litigation your certified equine appraiser can be a valuable asset in the court of law.  You can expect expert witness testimony and professional consultation regarding the value of your horse. 

9. Certified appraisals can add value to the horse you want to sell or lease.  Gord Wadds has an in-depth knowledge of bloodlines and performance records.  Let him help you market your horse with a certified equine appraisal.

10. Having a recently purchased horse appraised by a certified equine appraiser can give you a tool should the horse turn out to be something other than what was advertised. 

11. Donating your horse to charity is an honorable action.  The Internal Revenue Service requires all horses valued over $5000.00 be appraised by a qualified equine appraiser.  Consult a certified public accountant with equine tax knowledge.
