Renowned for bringing the best horses in Australia to the one place, EQUITANA Melbourne is adding a whole new facet to its already jam-packed entertainment and competition program- an Elite Sport Horse Auction presented by Inglis.

18 of Australasia’s top young horses will be on show and on sale at EQUITANA Melbourne in the Aqualuma Grand Pavilion from 4:45pm on Saturday the 17th of November. Six premium sport horses each from three different disciplines being jumping, dressage and reining will be offered for sale in the magnificent Aqualuma Arena. This will be an exciting spectacle never before seen at EQUITANA...

Presenting the Elite Sport Horse Auction is Australia’s largest and oldest bloodstock auction firm- William Inglis & Sons. Bringing over 150 years of high-class thoroughbred auction experience the partnership is a union of two premier brands in the Australian equine industry.

EQUITANA Melbourne Event Director Rod Lockwood is excited to bring a never before seen aspect to the event’s program saying, “this is a great thing for the Australian equine community, this country really lacks a high class, elite equine sports horse auction and we are hoping to build from this beginning into something really special.”

Lockwood added “EQUITANA Melbourne is about including everyone from the equine world, so having both Western and European disciplines in the auction is something we are really proud of and we think the crowds will appreciate.”

The horses have been sourced from across Australia and New Zealand and only the best young three to six-year-old’s will be put under the hammer. Making it an exciting chance to take home a potential future champion with fantastic bloodlines.

Interested buyers will have to pre-register their interest in the horses up for auction on EQUITANA Melbourne’s website, then on Saturday November 17 the horses will go under the hammer to the highest bidder.

“This auction will bring together the best horses from the best breeders and it will be presented by the best auction firm at Australia’s best equine event- It’s a really exciting time for EQUITANA Melbourne and we are looking forward to seeing the horses go up for sale” said Lockwood.

The EQUITANA Elite Sport Horse Auction presented by Inglis will take place on the Aqualuma Grand Pavilion on Saturday November 17 at 4:30pm.

EQUITANA Melbourne will be at the Melbourne Showgrounds from November 15-18 and is celebrating its 20th year in Australia this year.
