I am thinking of donating my horse to my old college. I am in the Williamsburg, VA area and need to get my horse appraised. Does anyone know where to find an appraiser?

Ask around on the breeding board... The people I know who do that are also breed show handlers & breeders.

In most instances a letter of value from an experienced professional will be acceptable to most schools.

They have an 800 number and can put you in touch with certified equine appraisers in your area. Do try to engage the services of an appraiser that specializes in your discipline.
Please be aware that the IRS may require an appraisal by a certified equine appraiser if you are going to claim the donation on your federal income taxes. You can visit the IRS website to find the forms that must be signed by the licensed appraiser and the appropriate instructions. Of course a certified equine appraiser will typically supply their own forms.
