Billy Stud Online Auction 2017 Success

We held an online Auction this month to showcase a selection of our best 3, 4, 5 and 6 year old horses;
Eleven 3 year olds, eleven 4 year olds, three 5 year olds and two six year olds.
The bidding opened on Monday the 16th of October with the auctions closing for the horses on consecutive days from Monday 23rd to Wednesday 25th of October.

All bidders were able to view 5 stage vettings and full x-rays of each horse online.
Updated photos and videos of the horses were posted on our website and through social media throughout October in the lead up to the auction. The idea behind this was so that potential buyers were able to see as much of the horses as possible before they placed their bids.
The auction horses included breeding from; Billy Congo, Billy Mexico, Cevin Z, Tangelo Van De Zuuthoeve along with Cover Hill, Animo, Kannan & Vechta which attracted many top names from the equine world wanting to buy British bred horses with several being won by successful producers, yards and riders.

We opened up our base at Jordans farm in Surrey to the public on Sunday 22nd & Monday 23rd of October so the horses could be viewed in person.
Luckily the weather was on our side and we had two great viewing days with around 300 people attending. Each horse was presented individually – the 3 year olds being loose jumped in our indoor arena and the 4,5 & 6 year olds shown under saddle on the flat and around a course of jumps in our outdoor arena.
