Why hire a professional equine appraiser?

An appraisal provides an unbiased monetary value for a horse after market research and analysis. In particular, EquiAppraisal services may be used in situations such as:

  • Donations

  • Insurance policies and claims

  • Purchases, sales and syndications

  • Divorce and estate settlements

  • Equine injuries and deaths

  • Tax audits and inquiries

  • Fraud

  • Bank collateral

  • Transaction disputes

  • Contract disputes

  • Litigation and expert consultation services

Are you donating a horse worth $5,000 or more? If so, you need a qualified appraiser!
According to the IRS, “taxpayers are required to obtain a qualified appraisal for
donated property for which a deduction of more than $5,000 is claimed.”
