When I brought my horse to WTS to be sold, of course I entered into the standard consignment contract which provides for conditioning/training of the horse and working with potential purchasers. All of these activities were completed by Joy Weber and her staff in an exemplary manner. Of course, I didn't abandon my horse and expect full time care by WTS, as the contractual arrangement does not include that. I paid his board in a timely manner and visited my horse regularly. I kept in regular contact with Joy and her staff regarding my horse's progress, conditioning, and showings to potential purchasers. In addition, I retained responsibility for my horse's health and welfare, including veterinary and farrier care.
While it may take some time to find the right purchaser, I definitely believe that Joy and her staff have every consignment horse's wellbeing as their top priority. Overall, I brought my horse to be sold by professionals and that is exactly what I got and more, they handled the entire transaction from my bringing him to them to his being sold with the utmost professionalism and consideration. While it is difficult to trust anyone with your horse, there was never a time when I was concerned for my horse's welfare while he was at WTS.
Within this same period of time, I also purchased the most wonderful horse that was on consignment with WTS care for many months. He was extremely well cared for, as is every horse on consignment, in training, or boarded at WTS.
I highly recommend WTS to anyone who desires professional assistance regarding horses, whether it be for training, sales, purchasing, consultation, boarding, horsemanship, etc.
