North American Equine Services (NAES) is the leader in multiple breed equine appraisals.
We provide professional and accurate horse appraisals compliant with IRS and USPAP guidelines.
When appraising horses, the acquisition of comparative sale prices can be difficult and clients are assured that the appraisal services offered by NAES are delivered by a highly experienced firm with significant background in the horse business. At NAES we take great pride in providing a totally unbiased evaluation of client horse(s).
NAES’s knowledge and experience is derived from the ongoing involvement in the multi-faceted horse world i.e., showing, judging, show management, auctioneering, sales, etc. Participation in national associations has also broadened the perspective necessary to offer an accurate portrayal of a horse’s worth.
Discounts are available to Associations, Barns and Multiple Horses.

The Truth About Certified Equine Appraisals
Although the term "Certified" is used frequently by many individuals who advertise horse appraisal services, certification needs to apply to the individual themselves, not just the fact that they "passed" a course examination. When any other horse appraiser states they are "Certified," it only means they have taken the courses in the field of study.
Only one school in the entire United States is recognized for its certification courses in equine appraising - the American Society of Equine Appraisers (ASEA). Through the ASEA, NAES’ President, David D. Johnson was Life Member awarded in 1991, #1050 and Senior Equine Appraiser - Status 8/16/2001; (The first Senior Equine Appraiser in North America). He has taken both the beginning and advanced courses offered, and is one of the few Senior Equine Appraisal Specialists in North America. Mr. Johnson is no longer involved with the ASEA in any way.
In reality, the ASEA encourages its accredited members to market themselves as “qualified” equine appraisers, as opposed to “certified” equine appraisers.
NAES - USPAP Compliance
The Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP), is the set of generally accepted standards for professional appraisal practice in North America. USPAP contains standards for all types of appraisal services, including: real estate, personal property, business and mass appraisal. As such, USPAP does not recognize certification unless an appraisal is performed on real property. Appraisal “certification” is reserved for those appraising real property.
The Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery and Enforcement Act of 1989 recognizes USPAP as the generally accepted appraisal standards and requires USPAP compliance for appraisers in federal-related transactions.
As there is no national license for personal property appraisers, USPAP compliancy is an important credential, and one that the IRS uses to measure appraisals as acceptable for tax purposes. The IRS is much less likely to question appraisals completed by USPAP compliant appraisers.
An equine appraisal prepared and stamped with the NAES seal insures that the document meets all USPAP ethical and performance obligations.
