Equine Appraisals

Most people use equine appraisals for tax-deductible donations or for court cases. The IRS requires anyone who is donating a horse worth $5,000 or more to obtain a qualified appraisal. Kat is a certified equine appraiser with the American Society of Equine Appraisers (ASEA). She has been certified since 1996, and she has completed over a thousand equine appraisals in the last 21 years. She was awarded the designation of Senior Appraiser this year by ASEA, the highest designation given to appraisers by the organization. She was awarded this honor due to her experience and completion of several courses regarding current standards of appraisal practice in this country. She is one of only about 40 appraisers to be given that designation in the US and Canada.

Kat uses her extensive experience in the equine industry to develop fair and comprehensive appraisals. Even though her experience as a trainer is in the hunter/ jumper industry, she has also completed many appraisals for western, dressage, and event horses.

She is reliable, responsible, courteous, and thorough with all of her appraisals. The completed appraisal is a 10+ page report with all of the necessary information to arrive at your horse’s value. Most importantly, she is prompt. Once she receives all of the information from you, she can usually send the completed appraisal to you within a week’s time. She has many repeat clients, and she has several schools and programs that continually refer her name to people looking for a certified appraiser.

Please contact Kat at [email protected] or (706)474-8490 if you are in need (or think you may be in need) of an equine appraisal. She can walk you through the process and answer all your questions.
