Breeding: Schemes only apply to the current breeding season and for mares at participating studs on receipt of a signed ‘scheme form’. Successful pregnancy or delivery of a live healthy foal is not guaranteed by ERS(UK) Ltd. In the event of a negative pregnancy diagnosis it will be taken that you wish to continue under a scheme up to a maximum of three attempts unless we are informed otherwise. You will be invoiced monthly for any items not included in a scheme.
ERS(UK) Ltd do not accept any liability for, or the consequences thereof, in the event of a stallion not being able or available to perform breeding duties, semen not arriving on the day or time ordered to inseminate the mare, or semen arriving in an unusable condition, without appropriate labelling or health certification. ERS(UK) are not responsible for any additional veterinary, livery, or other costs incurred in such instances. We reserve the right to refuse breeding services in the event that any of our conditions are not complied with or if we deem that Your horse or foal are determined to be in an unacceptable state of health or a safety risk
All mares that are bred by natural cover or artificial breeding are foaled at Your risk and We do not accept any liability for any damages or compensation in respect of any injury or illness suffered by any mare and/or foal as a result of foaling. The vulva of any mare may be sutured if considered necessary unless written instructions are received to the contrary.
AI Technicians: Mares will be inseminated by either a veterinary surgeon acting on behalf of ERS (UK) or at certain studs by a certified AI technician outside the employment of ERS (UK), but a representative of the stud. We do not accept any liability for illness or injury suffered by your horse, or any adverse consequences of insemination, when this is performed by an AI technician. This would include illness or injury suffered by your horse, or any potential contagious disease consequences for your horse and other horses as a result of insemination of fresh, chilled or frozen semen of unknown disease status. Details of AI technicians involved can be found either in the breeding schemes or directly from the stud your mare is resident at.
Frozen semen storage terms: Where We are providing frozen semen storage, You shall arrange delivery of the semen to the storage facility on a date and at a time to be agreed with us. The container in which the semen is delivered must be suitable for this purpose and we shall be entitled in our absolute discretion to refuse to receive any semen delivered in a container which is not considered of a satisfactory standard.
We will store semen at the stud or at such other premises that We may in our absolute discretion determine for such purpose. Frozen semen will be stored on site in tanks maintained and overseen by a representative of Genus Breeding Limited, who are experienced in such work. We will store semen in such quantity as may be agreed between You and Us. We shall be entitled in our absolute discretion to refuse to receive any semen for storage or to end our storage of the semen for any reason. We will charge You (the mare owner/agent) for storage of semen at our current rate plus VAT per annum, or part thereof. We reserve the right to increase this fee with 28 days-notice.
You agree to us carrying out all necessary tests and procedures on the semen as appropriate for its storage or use.

This is a guide only as to the quality of the semen but we give no guarantee in respect of any tests carried out on the semen regarding the fertility or suitability of the semen or otherwise.
You may remove the semen from storage at any time on a date and at a time agreed with Us after giving seven days written notice, provided that such removal is not in breach of any relevant statutory or regulatory requirement. Return of semen to the stallion owner/agent will be the responsibility of the mare or stallion owner and is not the responsibility of ERS(UK) Ltd.
