I was wondering if anybody knows of a good contract for buying a horse through payments.
I will be paying her off from May to October but what happens if she becomes injured before I have officially purchased her?
The owner says I can make sporadic payments as long as the full cost is payed off before October.
She doesn't seem to care if there a contract but I am not comfortable sending away money if there is no legal document saying that she can't change her mind later on. I'm not allowed to pick up the horse until she is payed off and the seller said she will keep her on the farm until payed for with no extra cost to me.
The horse is a registered Warmblood but I hate her name. Am I allowed to change that at all and if so should it be done before or after the sale?
I am buying her sight unseen and I realize the risks but am I able to put in the contract that I can return her if any injuries that will affect her in the long term that were not specified are found? I have been assured she has never been injured but I just want it to be sure.
Is there anything else important I should put in the contract?
If somebody could help me that would be great! This is my first payment sale so I just don't want to be taken advantage of.
