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!
