Once your mare is in foal, and on completion of a veterinary certificate to confirm this we will forward you the Service certificate if you have completed the Request for a Covering Certificate.

Refund Policy

To qualify for a refund we require a letter from your vet confirming that your mare is not in foal by the agreed date. The refund will only apply to the balance of the Service fee less $200 administration fee.


All costs associated with delivery and collection of mares or semen transportation are to the owner's account.
