The dust has settled at RENO ~ Diamonds in the Desert Premier Horse Sale held in conjunction with Reno Rodeo!
To say it was wild would be an understatement!
Nominations were submitted in March, scored, and our Top 75 were picked and announced by April 15th. 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 for supporting our sale,
Colby & Codi Gines
