Western Pleasure and English Horses Lead PAS Online Auctions
The high selling horses from both auctions came from the Day 1 Sessions for Western Pleasure & English horses. The Day 1 sessions boasted the largest number of registered bidders, 358, and the largest number of views with over 106,000 combined views for the Day 1 pages. “The market for Western Pleasure and English horses is clearly improving,” said Mike Jennings of Professional Auction Services. “The level of enthusiasm is growing and demand for these horses is increasing at all levels of the market.”

A bidder offered $29,000 for an All Around gelding in the March Auction, but that bid did not meet the seller’s minimum price. The January auction attracted a high bid of $34,000 for a Western Pleasure horse, which also failed to meet the reserve price.
Nearly 100 horses have been sold to new owners through the first two PAS Online Auctions.
Geographic diversity is evident in the first two online auctions with buyers and sellers from Canada and 31 states ranging from California to Connecticut and Florida to Washington. Mike Jennings of Professional Auction Services, Inc. commented, “there were registered bidders from Germany and Sweden. We believe that our online auctions will continue to grow and attract more buyers from more places.”
