Horse Creek Sale Company LLC acts as an agent only between buyer and seller. Any warranties or guarantees made by the seller are exclusively between the buyer and seller. Horse Creek Sale Company LLC does not make any guarantees or warranties.
If you would like the sale vet to evaluate a consigned horse you are welcome to do so, at your cost, and with permission from the consignor. The sale vet acts as an independent contractor when requested to perform additional evaluations. The sale vet is Dr. Brian Eitelman (720) 339-4187. Feel free to bring your own vet to the sale (again, at your cost and with seller's permission) to perform an examination.
Every effort has been made to assure correctness of this catalog. Horse Creek Sale Company LLC and its associates are not responsible for any errors or omissions of information on any horse and assume no liability as to any statements, verbal or written, regarding horses sold. All comments and photos are the responsibility and expression of the consignor.
The stall numbers are set up by our host facility, Douglas County Fairgrounds - and can be a bit confusing. We encourage consignors to take their horses out of the stalls and to utilize the arenas outside to show off their horses! If the horse in which you're interested is not in the stall, please take a look in the warm up arena. For your convenience, please click here to view a map.
Buyers, sellers and spectators are encouraged to use caution while on the grounds and particularly while horses are being shown or sold. All persons attending the sale do so at their own risk. Horse Creek Sale Company LLC and its agents are not responsible for death or harm incurred to human or animal or property in connection with the sale at any time.
Right of refusal
The Auctioneer reserves the right to accept bids in any increment he feels is in the best interest of his client, the seller. Sale Management and Auctioneers are authorized by consignor to decline any bid made by persons who in their judgment are not responsible or reliable bidders. Sale Management reserves the right to refuse service and bidding privileges at their discretion.
Forms of payment accepted are; cash, GOOD check, and credit card. Returned checks will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Credit card transactions are incurred a 3% buyer’s premium. There is no buyer’s premium for cash or check. All payments must be made on sale day. The buyer will receive a Bill Of Sale upon payment when paying with cash or credit card. The buyer will receive Proof Of Purchase for Transportation Only when paying with a check. Bill of Sale will then be mailed, typically within 14 business days and after the check has cleared.
The buyer is responsible for the care of the animal and takes possession immediately upon purchase- this includes but it not limited to overall well being, security, feed, and water. The bidder becomes solely responsible for the horse(s) purchased by him immediately following his winning bid. Therefore, he is advised to further protect his horse at his own discretion. If a horse is to stay overnight it must be picked up no later than 10am tomorrow (Sunday) morning. All buyers receive a new halter - congratulations on your new horse from Horse Creek Sale Company!
Verbal terms and conditions as stated by the auctioneer supersede any other terms above, online, in the catalog or otherwise.
ALL SALES ARE FINAL
PHONE BIDS ARE ACCEPTED
We do accept phone bids, but please note that in doing so all buyer terms and conditions still apply. If you are the winning bidder, the horse is your responsibility upon the fall of the hammer (including but not limited to feed, water, and security) and must be picked up by yourself or your agent not later than 10 am the morning following the sale.
If you are the winning bidder, we will call you very shortly after the horse goes through the ring to take a credit card payment over the phone. All credit card payments are assessed an additional 3% charge (this is what the cc processing company charges us).
If you are interested in placing a phone bid, we will need your full name, mailing address, phone number where you can be reached on sale day, a photo of your driver's license, and the horse(s) in which you're interested in bidding NOT LATER THAN the Thursday prior to the sale. Email us
Once hip numbers have been assigned, we will have a better idea of a window of time when the horse(s) you're interested in will be selling.
Phone bids are offered as a courtesy and a service and we will do the best we can to contact you when the horse(s) you're interested in sell. However, sometimes things happen and we aren't able to make the call. NO GUARANTEES. It is ALWAYS best to send an agent to bid on your behalf if you cannot attend in person.
If you have additional questions, please feel free to call John Hayes, owner of Horse Creek at 970-345-2543.
