We can say with absolute certainty that it was great to be back on center stage at the Plaza Hotel & Casino for the 2021 Diamonds in the Desert Premier Horse Sale ~ Las Vegas!
Nominations were submitted in September, scored, and our Top 75 out of nearly 200 nominations were picked and announced by October 5th. 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 and Canada registered to bid. A high percentage of them were return buyers. We appreciate all our buyers trusting us and our trainers in your purchases. Thanks to our trainers for bringing their very best to our sales!
Thank you for supporting our sale,
