We encourage all buyers to have the veterinarian of your choice examine any horse you are interested in. The Pre-Purchase Exam must be done PRIOR TO THE END OF THE AUCTION. Please contact the seller to arrange the time and date of your Pre-Purchase Exam. You cannot perform any Pre-Purchase Exams after the close of the auction. All horses are sold AS IS, WHERE IS with ALL existing conditions. There are no guarantees, express or implied, on any horses. Veterinarian statements are provided but are NOT MEANT TO BE A REPLACEMENT FOR A PRE-PURCHASE EXAM.

Yes. To list your horse for sale on Mane Street Auctions, you will need to read, agree and sign the Seller’s contract.
Horses will be marketed on Mane Street Market’s (Mane Street Auction’s sister company) social media sites on Facebook and Instagram @manestreetmarket. Horses will be listed on the Mane Street Market website and app and will also be marketed through targeted email lists to over 5,000 equestrians. Marketing will start 2 weeks before the auction goes live.
Deadline for listing a horse for current auction is 48 hours before the live (online) auction begins. No exceptions.
Mane Street Auctions will contact the Seller and give the option to sell the horse to the highest bidder. If Seller agrees – MSA will contact the highest bidder to inquire if they agree to purchase horse at that price. Seller will be sent a form to agree to purchase price and original contracts will go into effect.
Seller also has option to put that specific horse into the next scheduled auction at no additional cost and will need to resign contracts.
Mane Street Market is the “parent company” or you may see it referred to as the “sister website” on Mane Street Auctions. Mane Street Market is an app and a website that serves as a marketing platform for sales horses and equine services. The benefit to Mane Street Auction is that we will market the sales horses on the MSM app and website which gives the Seller the opportunity to reach thousands of additional equestrians and potential buyers.
