Hi! I Just wanted to give you an update on sweet Atti. She is doing amazingly well and we are so in love with her! She is seriously as sweet as a kitten. She has been in full training since we bought her, with Samantha Walker Performance Horses at Chaparosa Ranch in Scottsdale, Arizona. Sam has an excellent kid's program, is the president of the Arizona Pony of the Americas club, and hosts shows at the ranch. Atti hasn't shown yet, but she's getting ready. When Atti first came, she was a bit fidgety and unsure of what her job was. When I was looking at Atti in Vegas, I asked Amy what she would change about Atti if she could.. she said she'd want her to improve on her showmanship skills because she doesn't like to stand still. Well, I can report that Atti stands quietly in the crossties now, and she is coming along very well in showmanship too! She still likes to be very 'in your pocket' but she has learned about personal space and knows when to stand quietly. She is so super mellow and kind, just the sweetest pony. Nothing shakes her- not even when we did jousting with pool noodles at the kid's last Pony Play Day. Waving those noodles around and jousting didn't bother her a bit. She is definitely a barn favorite. She has many years to grow with our family, as our youngest daughter is a tiny 5-year-old. Just wanted to say thanks for a wonderful pony, and it's nice that she's drop-dead gorgeous too.
West Fork Ranch, Amy Heitland and Shane Vaughan, brought a beautiful finished show horse to the sale last year. Our granddaughter has had a fun and successful show season on him. He has been everything they said he would be. Dreams come true at the Diamond in the Desert Sale.
I thought you would like this picture of Dun It Hangen on the Santa Anita Racetrack at sunrise. He is staying at the track with my friend and race trainer Kristin Mulhall for a month until my back heals and I can bring him up to Pebble Beach. So far he is taking in track life well, just like he does everything else. As Duane Yoder said, if you ask Dun It what he has done, he will answer "I Dun It"! After riding and competing on jumpers for over 50 years, when I got bucked off a bad horse a couple months ago and injured badly, I really thought my riding days were over. I told Kristin for me to get back on she had to find me something amazing and I think we did just that! Many thanks again for running a great auction that enabled us to get this super horse!
Very professional and dialed in. Screens the horses really well. Last year I participated in the Diamond in the Desert Sale and bought one of the best horses I have ever owned, and I have owned plenty! The horse was exactly as advertised if not better. MM Auction screened these horses really well and were helpful from the purchase to the delivery. I was not able to attend last year and bought the horse via the internet with no problems what so ever. This year I will be there. It will be hard to find another horse like the one I bought last year, as he is one of those "once in a lifetime" horses, but if there is another one chances are he will be at the Diamond in the Desert Sale.
Merry Christmas!! We have some Christmas ponies and are looking forward to great fun and adventures this coming year. I'm happy to share this experience with daughters, thankful to have found Samantha Walker and her amazing program at Chaparosa Ranch in Scottsdale, Arizona and to have been introduced to this wonderful POA breed. Thank you to Diamonds in the Desert, Mozaun and Sarah McKibben, McKibben Performance Horses, West Fork Ranch, Amy Heitland and Shane Vaughan for these amazing ponies!
Every event I’ve been to has been top notch. Great horses represented, a very professionally ran program and I would definitely recommend them for your next big sale.
I attended the Diamonds in the Desert sale this year and it was truly amazing. A sale ran with class and with the buyer’s best interest in mind. I was very impressed.
Amazing sale horses!!! Not to mention a fantastic staff. They couldn’t have been a better group of people to deal with!!!
Top notch horse sale and what a crew to work with! We sold a horse this past December and felt like it was diamond quality. What a fun experience. These horses are what they are marketed to be and Gines make sure of that.
My grandpa bought a horse at the first annual sale in Las Vegas. He is an amazing horse, he is exactly as they represented him to be. He is one that everyone enjoys. It was an amazing sale that was very organized, honest, and smooth running!
Hi there - I just wanted to let you know we bought JK Pat from you through Buckeye Acre Farms (Duane Yoder). He is now living in the beautiful Hill Country of Texas! Its our second horse from Buckeye Acres and JK exceeded our expectations in every way. We are so astounded we were able to get him and just over the moon. He is, as so often happens, more incredibly beautiful in person. We trust Duane and Buckeye Acres - they have always been very supportive, nice and have what I feel is a world class training program. Thank you!
Honest and horses are exactly what they represent them to be. So happy with the 3 I bought.
It was awesome! Codi and Colby were terrific along with all their staff. Loved Las Vegas, Can't wait for Bryce Canyon. They are a true bunch of folks and won't steer you wrong on a horse or mule. They handpick clients and their stock, very easy to work with. They are upper class, sincere folks in everything they do. Heck just look at their kids, well behaved, working kids, well mannered, they do a fantastic job. Trust these folks in whatever they tell you.
Recommend them 1000 times over! We consigned our horses to the 2019 Diamonds in the Desert sale. Our first sale ever! Codi was MORE than accommodating for us! She answered every question I had, no matter the time of day. She helped us through the entire process of getting our horses settled and into the best home we could have imagined! They strive to produce the best sale in the US and they have succeeded! They go above and beyond for their buyers to help ensure they will be bringing home a safe, sound, and reliable partner! Not only that, but they really make a consigner feel at ease that their horses are going to find the best home and be marketed in front of thousands of people. Talk about taking the extra step to make sure your horses are seen by a massive audience. We can’t wait to consign with Premier Horse Sales again!
Codi & Colby are true professionals. Mozaun and I absolutely love the Diamonds in the Desert Sale. We look forward to it every year. They sell quality over quantity and the measures they go to produce a top-notch sale is second to none. I highly recommend them to consign to and buy from. They will not disappoint. We are proud to have our horses accepted into such a prestigious sale.
