The first Ride the Wave Premier Horse Sale swept us off our feet! Held at a once in a lifetime venue, the World Equestrian Center in Ocala, Florida.
Nominations were submitted in December, scored, and our Top 65 horses were announced by January 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, Canada, Germany, and Poland registered to bid. 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,
