The Natural Service contract address issues in ways to protect the stud or stallion owner, such as fertility of the mare, service fee and breeding costs, vet engagement, supply of a service certificate, a free return (if offered) and its associated conditions, a lien over the mare, a right to sell the mare if monies are owed and limitation of liability.


The Semen Supply contract deals with issues relating to the amount of semen to be supplied and to whom, the risk of the semen being lost or damaged, a free return (if offered) and its associated conditions, limitation of liability and supply of a service certificate.


If you own a breeding stallion, but want someone to manage the breeding side of things, the Breeding Management Contract deals with the manager’s responsibilities including taking breeder enquiries, semen collection and shipment and service certificates. The service fee is paid into the owner’s account and the manager is remunerated by either a percentage of the service fee or free semen or both.  The contract also covers the common situation where the manager is a professional who trains and competes the stallion.


Horse breeders, especially first timers and city folk, may lack the knowledge, experience and facilities to look after a mare and care for the foal. Or it may be the case that the mare has had difficulty breeding in the past and needs close supervision.
If you want to help these breeders but worry about managing their expectations, protecting your interests and avoiding liability, this contract takes care of the business details, including:

  •  disclosure to you of the mare’s health status
  •  breeder’s acknowledgement of the numerous risks of breeding
  • delivery of the mare
  •  the foaling down process
  •  your authority to engage a vet to protect the mare, in utero foal and foal
  •  fees and expenses payable to you and your rights on default
  • timing of collection of the mare and foal


Whether you wish to sell an embryo from your champion mare or to purchase an embryo to breed a “designer foal” this contract will help. Easy to read and comprehensive, it is an indispensable tool to manage the relations between the buyer and the seller of the embryo.

The breeder procures semen and also pays for the donor mare to be inseminated. The donor mare owner, who must pre-approve the stallion and the AI vet, has the mare flushed.  Whether or not embryos are collected, this contract takes care of the next steps in the process.

When is the donor mare owner paid? Who owns the embryo before and after removal from the donor mare?  Who is responsible for procuring a recipient mare?  What if the recipient mare loses the foal?  What if the donor mare is injured during insemination or embryo collection or removal? These questions and more are addressed by the contract.

On receipt of your order, we badge the contract with your business name and details before sending you a draft copy for your review.  In case you have any unusual requirements, we will work with you to make one set of changes at no extra cost. The contract will be sent to you as a draft in case you want to add anything. Your collaboration ensures that the final contract more than matches your expectations.
