Terms & Conditions

 

The Golden Rule:

 

All Animals/Items are sold as described by the Vendor/Consignor without warranty of misrepresentation from Triangle Horse Sale. Bidding Indicates you have satisfied yourself with all aspects of the animal/items and no other party is responsible. We strongly recommend Due Diligence, Sufficient Research and Physical Inspections of All Animals/Items Sold or Offered at Auction.  All animals/items are made available for physical inspection of any kind prior to Auction.

Important Information for all Buyers:

Triangle Horse Sale make no warranty or guarantee to the information provided by the vendor. We strongly recommend you conduct your own due diligence and welcome and encourage physical inspections and vet checks. Triangle Horse sale acts as an agent only between the vendor and buyer and as such can give no advice as to the suitability or compatibility of the horses on offer to you as a prospective buyer. Not all Horses will suit all Riders and we encourage you to ask questions via email at auctions@trianglehorsesale.com, your questions are then forwarded directly to the vendor and in turn we provide you with the vendors reply email. If you have any doubts or hesitation to the suitability of the horse for your needs, we strongly suggest you do not bid on that lot and find a lot more suitable to your individual needs.

 

To assist the Queensland Racing Integrity Commission with the traceability of retired Race Horses, the contact details of all successful purchasers of any and all Branded Thoroughbreds will be forwarded to the QRIC along with the purchasers intentions i.e. Retraining for Trail Riding, Show Jumping, Dressage, or Breeding, Companion Horse etc. By Bidding on any horse identified as a racehorse, you agree to have your details forwarded to the QRIC in the event you are the successful purchaser.
