Terms & Conditions

This website, Equine Finders, (the “Website”) is a service of Equine Finders. This is a legally binding agreement between you and Equine Finders; please read it carefully. By using the services offered on the Website or by continuing to view materials on the Website, you are consenting to be bound by these Terms of Use.

General Provisions

Equine Finders respects your privacy. Please take a moment to review our privacy policy.

  • Since the Web is an evolving medium, Equine Finders may change the terms of this agreement from time to time. By continuing to use the Website following our posting of such changes, you agree to be bound by this agreement, as modified.
  • Equine Finders may change, restrict access to, suspend, or discontinue this Website, or any portion of this Website, at any time and without notice to you.
  • The material that appears on this Website is for informational purposes only. Despite our efforts to provide useful and accurate information, errors may appear from time to time.
  • Before purchasing items, animals, or services you’ve read about on this Website, you should confirm with the seller any information (including the price) that is important to your purchasing decision.
  • Equine Finders is not responsible for, and does not guarantee the condition, soundness, health, physical appearance, performance, or any other aspect of any such animal, item or service.


Buying and Selling

The Website is a classified ad search engine and listing service that brings together buyers and sellers.
Information about a particular item, animal or service is supplied by the seller, not by Equine Finders.

  • Equine Finders will not be a party to any transaction between a buyer and seller based upon information posted on the Website. At no time does Equine Finders take title to any of the goods or animals offered for sale on the Website.
  • As a result, we have no control over the quality, safety or legality of the items advertised the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of sellers to sell or the ability of buyers to buy. Do not assume that the sale, purchase, export or import of any item is valid and legal simply because it is listed on our website.
  • The price and other terms of any sale remain subject to direct negotiation between the buyer and the seller.
  • The prices listed by sellers on the Website may exclude other charges which may be added to the listed price to arrive at the final price of a particular item.
  • Though we hope that all who come to this Website will act honorably and treat each other fairly,
    We can’t verify the information sellers supply or guarantee or warranty the products, animals, or services they offer. Nor can we assure the seller that the check he/she gets from the buyer isn’t going to bounce or the payment be fraudulent.
  • When using this Website to find a buyer for your item, animal or service, or an item, animal or service you can buy, we urge you to use the same common sense and good judgment you would use in selling an item, service or animal through, or responding to, a classified ad in the newspaper or other publication. There is no substitute for healthy skepticism and your own good judgment. We strongly suggest you obtain the services of a Veterinarian or other qualified individual, as applicable, to evaluate any animal or item you are considering.
  • When you place an ad on this Website, you must be prepared to sell the item, animal, or service in the ad at the price at which, and the terms on which, you’ve listed it. You must have possession of the actual item or animal listed and the ability to transfer ownership.
  • To list an item, animal or service for sale on the Website, sellers are required to provide certain identifying and contact information. The information must accurately identify the seller and the method of contact must permit buyers to communicate directly with the seller.
  • You may not charge any potential buyer for information about any item, animal or service listed for sale on the Website, nor may you use the Website to promote, without our prior written permission, any other Website, product or service.
  • Equine Finders reserves the right to deny use of the Website to anyone who does not comply with these requirements or who otherwise uses the Website in a manner we consider, in our sole discretion, inappropriate.
  • Responsibility for the information contained in ads lies with each seller. You alone are responsible for material you post and for the content of all email messages transmitted through the Website.
  • Nothing will undermine a user’s confidence in the item you’re looking to sell faster than inaccurate statements or misleading representations about the item. Since any erosion of user confidence in you is likely to be accompanied by erosion of user confidence in us, we care deeply about making sure that the information you supply is accurate and that, in all respects, you treat Website users fairly and honorably.
  • Though we don’t monitor transactions that originate on the Website, we reserve the right to perform random quality assurance tests to confirm that those who offer items, animals, or services for sale over the Website are prepared to sell the items, animals, or services they advertise at the prices at which, and the terms on which, they advertise them. By placing an ad on our Website, you agree to cooperate in any such random quality assurance tests. If our tests reveal, or we otherwise learn, that a seller, in our sole discretion, is engaging or intends to engage, in unfair or deceptive practices, Equine Finders reserves the right to deny that seller use of this Website and our ad services.
  • Although Equine Finders cannot monitor all the ads posted to our Website, we reserve the right (but assume no obligation) to delete, move, or edit any ads or other postings that come to our attention that we consider unacceptable or inappropriate, whether for legal or other reasons. By using the Website you agree not to post or transmit any defamatory, abusive, obscene, threatening, misleading, or illegal material, or any other material that infringes on the rights of others or interferes with the ability of others to enjoy the Website. We retain the right to deny access to anyone who we believe has violated these terms or any other term of this agreement. We may occasionally release information concerning such communications when release is appropriate to comply with law applicable by intellectual property and other laws, to enforce our Terms of Use, or to protect the rights, property or safety of visitors to our site, our advertisers, the public or Equine Finders.
  • By placing an Ad on our Website, you agree to pay the fees specified for the service you select, regardless of whether your item, animal, or service sells as a result of the listing. Take care in selecting your Ad type and submitting your Ad information; listing fees are not refundable, even if you provide erroneous information or fail to sell your animal, item or service. Click here for our Refund Policy.
  • Sellers or traders will be responsible for paying all fees associated with using our service and our website and all applicable taxes applicable by intellectual property and other laws.
  • If you register for a User ID to enable you to amend or change your advert you are responsible for all actions taken under that User ID. It is your responsibility to keep your User ID safe. You have no right to disclose or transfer your User ID to any other person.




Refund Policy

Equine Finders will follow this policy with respect to any refund request:

  1. Equine Finders cannot provide a refund for any reason other than a duplicate (or overlapping) charge for an ad. For example, we cannot provide a refund if you change your mind about the Ad, or its content or enhancements, or if you have made mistakes in submitting the Ad, or if you have not received any inquiries or offers to purchase the item through Equine Finders, or if the item has already been sold through other means. We also cannot provide a refund if you have made mistakes in the content of the Ad (you can review your ad before purchasing and edit it afterward). In any case where it is determined by Equine Finders that Equine Finders has made a mistake, we will of course make appropriate corrections to the Ad.
  2. If you made mistakes in submitting an Ad directly with Equine Finders, you are able to edit the ad through a direct contact with the website administration team. If you wish to change to a less expensive Ad, however, Equine Finders cannot provide any refund or credit.
