Reno’s 1st Annual Diamonds in the Desert Premier Horse Sale prices
held strong through Covid-19 and was more than divine online!
Nominations were submitted in February, scored, and our Top 60 were picked and announced by March 15th. We continued as planned with our fingers crossed. May 7th is when we received the news of the Reno Rodeo cancelling. At this time, we made the executive decision to go with an online only sale. Our consignors had to continue to work as well as our MM Auction Services office. Most of all, our buyers were in need of great horses for this up and coming summer. We showcased all breeds and all disciplines to accommodate all buyers. Horses sold with pre-purchase exams and many buyers were able to travel to the horse’s homes to ride them prior to the sale giving them the confidence they needed to bid come sale day. We appreciate those buyers! We had buyers from all over the United States as well as many from Canada registered to bid. A high percentage of them were return buyers. We appreciate all our buyers trusting us and our consignors in your purchases. Thanks to our consignors for bringing their very best to our sales!
Thank you all for supporting our sale,
