    You probably won't find any appraisal companies that understand the horse world or specialize in it but you do have an option.
    I had a client going through the same thing you are and there was a big fight brewing over custody of the horse.
    I simply wrote a very formal letter (To Whom It May Concern:) for her stating my best opinion of the horse's value and why. This was fine with the courts and the fight was over.

    Do you know a professional trainer who is familiar with the horse in question? Can they or will they write such a letter for you?

    Even though horses are an asset to us, the courts usually treat them as pets unless there is a custody or $$ value fight. That's why they will usually accept a letter like this from a professional-they just want to get the issue out of the way!
    Good luck!

    When a friend and her hubby split, (her horse, him no interest) her farrier "bo't" her horse. When it came up in court, she stated she had no money for feed and had no other recourse. The bill of sale was for $ One Dollar. The judge accepted that realizing the horse was no longer an asset but a liability.

    There most certainly are horse appraisers. Good ones and bad ones, cheap ones and expensive ones. I know people that have used Daventry.
