The Appraisal Process

Mission Statement: To provide fair and impartial values for all horse related matters.

At some point in a horse owners life, situations may occur that are unforeseen and require you to prove the value of your horse. This is when you need a professional horse appraiser who is compassionate and can advise you of the proper process and procedures. I abide by a strict code of ethics and rules as established by the Appraisal Standards Board and the American Society of Equine Appraisers. I provide a fair and unbiased opinion of most major horse breeds.

Appraisal Process: In making an equine appraisal, a comparable market analysis is used. The market data approach has as its premise the comparison of the subject equine with other equine that have sold in the recent past. From these values of recent equine sales, a composite figure is calculated representing the fair market value of the subject equine. This value is time sensitive due to economics and trends in the horse industry.

Current Market Value: This is the highest price, estimated in terms of money, that an informed buyer would pay for a particular horse on any given day.

Professional, bound reports are created and are admissible in court.

Donna sets her high standards with the Equine Code of Ethics.
