Round Hill, VA – Mike and Stephanie Jennings, of Professional Horse Services, LLC, announce the addition of three new Online auctions to be held this Summer for Show Prospects and Broodmares.  
 
These new Online Auctions are the High Performance Prospect Sale in June and in July the Broodmare Affaire and Halter Prospect Sales.
 
Mike Jennings states “We wanted to offer Summer auctions for Show Prospects for several reasons. Breeders can sell from home and market their horses earlier in the year to realize a savings on training and expenses.  Trainers can buy prospects earlier so the horses will be in their program longer before the Fall futurities.  People who like to buy for resale can find horses to develop and sell in the Fall auctions or at the major shows.”
 
Trainers, agents and owners can take advantage of the new Commission Share option.  The owner will pay a slightly higher commission, which will be split between the trainer and Pro Horse Services.  The owner will have the benefit of two parties working hard to sell their horse and the trainer will receive compensation, as well.

The High Performance Prospect Sale in June will feature a session closing on June 11 for Western Pleasure and Hunter Under Saddle Prospects.  A session for Reining, Cutting and Cow Horse Prospects will close on June 12.  This sale will focus on marketing yearlings as well as two and three-year-olds.  Pro Horse Services would like to receive the entries by May 10th, however, we will work with consignors schedules, knowing it is show season.
 
The Broodmare Affaire is a variation of a broodmare auction held last year that was limited to Halter mares.  Based on requests, the 2014 auction will be open to Performance and Halter mares that are in foal or produced embryos this year.  The mares offered will have show records, produce records or Championship pedigrees.  In 2013 the High Selling mare sold for $18,000.  Broodmare Affaire will close on July 22nd and entries should be made by June 10th.
 
The Halter Prospect Sale will be the marketplace for prospects for the Fall Futurities. The Online auction will offer weanlings, yearlings and two-year-olds.  It will close on July 23rd with entries due on July 10th.
 
Stephanie Jennings of Professional Horse Services, LLC adds “We are excited to be a Sponsor and “The Official Auction Company” for the East Coast Halter Futurity.  As a Bonus, Harris Leather and Pro Horse Services will co-sponsor a show Halter to be awarded to a horse competing in the Futurity that sold through an Online Auction produced by Pro Horse Services.”
 
These special auctions offer some added features that will enhance the presentation of the entries.   Each horse will display a catalog-style pedigree page with Research by Diane Johnson, of djj Pedigrees, who does the research for the Congress Super Sale catalog.  Ads have and will continue to appear in Major print and digital magazines.  Email blasts will send to 600,000 addresses including the Pro Horse Services list with buyers from the Congress Super Sale, US Marshals Sale of Rita Crundwell’s Horses, AQHA World Show Sale and NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Sale, as well as specialty lists.
 
As with any Pro Horse Services auction, sellers and buyers can rely on the experience of the Industry Leaders in Show Horse Auctions.  Mike and Stephanie Jennings have been involved with the sale of more than 50,000 horses.  The Pro Horse Services Online auctions have now sold nearly 400 horses for more than $1.1 Million dollars.  This is the system that was used for the Online auction of Rita Crundwell’s horses for the US Marshals Service, which realized an average sale price of $20,000 with a high seller at $226,000.
