You must register to bid with a valid email address prior to EACH sale. After registration, you will receive an email to confirm your account creation.  Your account is disabled until you click on the link in the email to activate it.  Each monthly auction is considered a new sale and requires a new registration to bid. We do not store bidder information from sale to sale.


Credit Card Required

For auctions that require a credit card to bid, please enter your credit card information.  This information is encrypted and kept securely and can/will be used for payment.

Maximum Bidding

You can enter a Maximum Bid at any time just like eBay.  Your increasing bids will be made automatically whenever you are outbid until the maximum bid is reached.  You will receive an email anytime Maximum Bidding takes effect.  Also your maximum bid will be listed so you can easily see your current status.

Winning the Bid

You must bid MORE than any other bidder's maximum bid by the minimum bid increment to have the winning the bid. 
Example:  The minimum bid increment is $200.  Bidder #1 has a maximum bid of $2,000.  Bidder #2 must bid at least $2,200 to be the winning bidder.

You will be outbid when your bid is not high enough over another bidder's Maximum Bid.

You will be outbid when your bid is the SAME as another bidders Maximum Bid since theirs was bid first.  Your bid will be accepted, however, you will still be outbid.

ALL REGISTERED BIDDERS must authorize a Winning Bidder Deposit of $300 to the Bidder’s credit card on file when they begin bidding on a horse; this payment helps ensure the Winning Bidder will complete the purchase of the horse. If Bidder does not win the highest bid, no charge will be made to Bidder’s card for Winning Bidder Deposit. If Bidder becomes Winning Bidder, the non-refundable $300 charge to Winning Bidder’s credit card will occur immediately, and RES will forward to Consignor. When remainder of purchase price is paid to RES, the $300 Winning Bidder Deposit will be credited to Winning Buyer’s account by deducting it from final purchase price of horse.
For example:
- Winning Bidder pays non-refundable $300 Winning Bidder Deposit to RES immediately after close of auction;
- RES promptly pays $300 Winning Bidder Deposit to Consignor;
- The $300 Winning Bidder Deposit is deducted from purchase price of horse, the remainder of which must be paid by Purchaser to RES within three (3) days of close of auction

Extended/No Rush Bidding

When a bid comes in within the last 5 minutes, that horse's auction will be extended an additional 5 minutes.  This extended bidding will continue as long as there are bids coming in.  This eliminates trying to get your bid in at the very last second and allows everyone a chance to bid. Horses that are extended will display their own countdown clock.

Email Notifications

You will receive emails when registering, bidding, being out bid, when you won and if you buy a horse after the auction concludes. Be sure to mark the emails as NOT SPAM so you see them as they come in. Also, PLEASE do not count on emails for bid notifications as emails can be delayed for many, many reasons! Logging in and refreshing the pages are the keys to keeping track of all the bids!

Bid Notifications

There are a few ways you are kept up to date on your bids. After your successful bid, the horse you bid on will have a different color border. It will also say whether you have the winning bid, or if you have been out bid. Plus, you will receive an email with your bid information.

Remember, if your bid is not high enough above another bidder's Maximum Bid, your bid will be accepted, but you will still be out bid until your bid is more than the other bidder's Maximum Bid.
