We are excited to announce that our next presentation of horses will be an ONLINE-ONLY offering from September 17-19, 2021, right here on our website!
DATES: September 17-19, 2021
OFFERING: Approximately 10 broke saddlehorses plus a select number of young prospects!
WHERE: Online-only at DMhorses.com, and on our app which is being designed for the event. We anticipate that the online bidding system and Diamond-McNabb Fall Offering app will be available for viewing by September 1st, 2021.
FORMAT: Timed-out auction, also known as a silent auction. There will be no auctioneer or live event, the horses will simply be available to bid on online from the opening date to the closing date!
Bidding will open at a set time on Friday, September 17th, 2021 and remain open until a set time on Sunday, September 19th, 2021. Buyers may register to bid on our website and either manually enter a new bid any time they wish to bid against competitors, or enter their maximum bid and allow the system to automatically represent their bid against competitors, up to the point that their maximum amount has been reached.
Bidding on each horse will close sequentially, known as a “staggered close” system. If bids are still actively being placed on a specific horse at the auction’s scheduled closing time, the closing time for that horse and all horses with a subsequent hip number will be delayed by 2 minutes from the time the most recent bid was placed. This will ensure bidders have the opportunity to make their best offers prior to closure of the auction. Once a horse’s bidding closes the sale will be final, so do not get left out by waiting to adjust your bids until the last minute!
If a horse’s predetermined reserve price is not met, the horse will not be sold. If the current bid does not meet the reserve price, bidders will see a notification on the bidding screen.
YOUR RESPONSIBILITY: We look forward to offering a good set of horses, and every horse will be backed with our confidence via the Diamond-McNabb Good-Fit Guarantee. However, please be reminded that as a prospective internet buyer, it is YOUR responsibility to personally contact us in advance of the sale and ensure that a horse is a good fit before you bid.
Our goal is to help each customer find the horse of THEIR dreams, so pick up the phone or shoot us an email, and let us help you navigate the shopping process! We look forward to visiting with you.
GUARANTEES: All horses will sell with a 72-hour soundness guarantee as described in the Terms & Conditions of the sale (to be posted August 1st). All horses will also sell with our Diamond-McNabb 30-Day Good-Fit Guarantee, as described in the Terms & Conditions of the sale.
TRANSPORTATION: Transportation of horses is the responsibility of the buyer. Diamond-McNabb can keep horses free of charge for one week following the sale, and can usually keep them longer for a daily boarding fee, if space allows. Please note that Diamond-McNabb is not liable for sold horses, as full liability for the horse transfers to the buyer at the time of the auction’s close.
