2022 RENO RESULTS
It feels so good to Three-peat!
What's a Three-peat you ask?
It's when Premier Horse Sales puts together yet another first-class sale for the third year in a row in Reno!
When fantastic trainers bring "PREMIER" horses and buyers can buy with confidence we all walk away winners!
Nominations were submitted in March, scored, and our Top 50 were picked and announced by April 15th. We cut back numbers to preserve our belief that quality over quantity is what is most important! We showcased all breeds and all disciplines to accommodate all buyers. Horses sold with sale 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
