2023 BEST OF TEXAS
The 2023 Best of Texas Premier Horse Sale was held at the Will Rogers Coliseum August 24-26. Will Rogers Coliseum offered a climate controlled environment that we were grateful for. Where some of the country’s top notch trainers were able to showcase their PREMIER horses to an array of qualified buyers! Premier Horse Sales has several elements in place from Nominations and Scoring to X-Rays and Vet Exams to the Sifting Process and Extensive Preview opportunities we provide, plus direct communication with the trainers so that the serious buyers can do their homework. Buyers had the opportunity to visit and try the horses ahead of time during the Try Before You Buy sessions and make informed decisions and ultimately be completely satisfied with their purchase. We appreciate those buyers! We had buyers from all over the United States as well as Australia registered to bid!
