THE STAGBI & SELLHORSE PARTNERSHIP ARE DELIGHTED TO RESUME PLANS FOR ONLINE SALES

The Standardbred and Trotting Horse Association of Great Britain and Ireland are delighted to announce that we will be working in partnership with Sellhorse.co.uk once more to bring the first Standardbred Online Sale to the membership.

Throughout this testing year a number of traditional outlets for breeders to sell their stock have been lost or postponed. With considerable uncertainty regarding current or future local or national Covid restrictions, STAGBI have sought to provide an alternative outlet for breeders and owners to continue to buy and sell, not only to continue to promote our breed, but with the Welfare of our animals in mind too.

Our December offering aims to present Horses of quality, that could present an opportunity to work & train over the winter months in readiness for our next Harness Racing season.

Supporting Harness Racing

Entry to the Standardbred Sale is free, any horses sold will incur a 5% Sellers Fee and a 5% Buyers fee (buyers fee capped to £250). However, as agreed earlier in they year,as an ongoing commitment to show support, STAGBI is pleased to announce that of this 10% Buyers/Sellers Fees, Sellhorse has honoured that 7% will be ring fenced and reinvested back into the harness racing industry. Thus, for example for a lot sold for £4,000, £280 will be returned as Sellhorse Race Sponsorship.

Entries will be made via Sellhorse by email, with sellers having the further option of purchasing a Pedigree Page direct from STAGBI. For more information on how Sellhorse works, please visit www.sellhorse.co.uk. Users can also register as buyers in readiness for the events.

Whilst traditional sales may always be some peoples first choice we are at a time of considerable change and getting to grips with the ‘new normal’ in everything we do. We will all need to adapt, adopt change and overcome. With that in mind we hope this sale will stand as a benchmark for what is possible to help us in future sales and sincerely hope that the membership will enjoy and join with us in embracing these sales, as we seek to offer an alternative and ensure the future of selling our Standardbred and Trotting Horses.
