All New Mid-Atlantic Breeders Sale Coming to Harrisburg, PA



A new horse auction, named the Mid-Atlantic Breeders Sale, is being planned December 10-12, 2003. The auction is to be held at the Penna Farm Show Facility in Harrisburg, Pa., and will represent the American Morgan and American Saddlebred breeds. The auction will also include some Hackney Horse and Pony consignments.

The planners of the event has reached the conclusion that based on the large numbers of horses in the region and the interest of new breeders, there is a need for this type of sale. It has become apparent that there is no other public auction of this caliber in the Northeast region of the United States. That is, an auction dedicated to meeting the needs of individual breeders who wish to present their animals to an interested public in an up to date facility and in the most professional way possible. A professional approach to horse selling will be represented in all aspects of planning, from the sale committee to the auctioneers and everyone in between. The event also claims a very high ethical standard.

With professionalism in mind, all consignments will be required to be included in the sale catalog and all horses sold will be required to be registered with their respective breed registries. Consignors are encouraged to provide the best possible care and management to the animals consigned to this auction. The goal of this new event is to become known as a place for breeders to benefit by providing them with a good place to market animals resulting from their breeding program while at the same time providing buyers a place to view many top horses in one place and choose the one or more that best suits their needs. There will be a broad spectrum of disciplines represented including breeding stallions and broodmares, show horses, pleasure horses and sport horses.

A horse sale is a great time for all types of people involved in all types of disciplines to come together in one place to talk, learn and buy. The Mid-Atlantic Breeders Sale will be a great event. Included in the activities will be a breeding Stallion presentation in which services to the stallions will be sold with the proceeds being donated to a needy cause. There will be sale horse presentation of the various breeds the evening before they are sold. There will be a tack sale and there will be vendors on hand selling horse related merchandise. All this will take place in an expo-like atmosphere where learning and fun come together.
