1.  All bidders should understand that all they are acquiring is the breeding contract to the stallion of their choice. The breeding is subject to the specific terms as outlined in the stallion owner’s breeding contract.





2.  The MHAO Stallion Service Auction (SSA) is committed to promoting the Morgan Horse Breed by making available to qualified bidders, Morgan stallions whose owners have agreed to donate a breeding to the MHAO SSA for the prevailing winning bid. Details, photographs, and related documents as provided by stallion owners or their agents are made available for bidder inspection prior to placing their bid. The MHAO SSA expressly recommends and cautions potential bidders to review all available information prior to the bidding process. They are also encouraged to contact the stallion owner directly before placing their bid. The MHAO SSA makes every effort to ensure accuracy in its offerings, but cannot and will not substantiate the details or condition of stallions offered.

3.  Breeding contracts cover such items as collection fees, shipping fees, and attendant arrangements. All arrangements are between the stallion owner and the successful bidder ONLY. The MHAO SSA is an avenue for the purchase of the stallion service, and shall not be held liable for any breach of contract, dispute, or other dissatisfaction. All sales are final.
4.  No service purchased through this benefit sale may be transferred without written permission of the stallion owner.
5.  In the event of a dispute concerning the terms of the auction or breeding contract, all participants agree to accept the decision of the MHAO SSA Committee as binding.

6.  Unless otherwise noted, the minimum bid on all stallions is $700 in U.S. funds.

7.  The highest online or phoned in bid will be the current bid shown on the bidding website. In the event of two or more bids for the same amount on the same stallion, the earliest bid shall be the accepted bid. If both are received at the same time, the prevailing bid will be determined by the flip of a coin.

8.  The mare owner is responsible for any bills concerning veterinary care, farrier, etc. In the event of semen transport, mare owners may be subject to collection fees and shipping charges. Consult the stallion owner on the terms pertaining to the shipment of semen.

9.  Only AMHA registered Morgan mares will be accepted for breeding.

10.  Payment terms are cash (good check) or credit card. Balance is due at the close of the auction, before mare is bred or by April 30th whichever is earlier. Checks to be made payable to:    MHAO SSA.

11.  If the payment is not good, the bid will be awarded to the prior bidder.

12.  Credit card information is to be provided at the time of bidding via the Bid Registration Form.  The card will not be charged unless the bidder has a winning bid at the end of the auction.  The bidder will be given the option to pay via check or credit card.  If a check is not received by April 30th, the credit card will be charged.
