A RECORD-breaking viewing of almost 200 foals across the Island of Ireland has been consolidated in the presentation of Edition 4 of The Breeders Select Foal Sale Ireland, via the Irish Horse Centre’s platform (www.ihc.auction), powered by The Mayo Roscommon Breeders Group.
Described by the selection committee as: ‘The most quality collection of foals ever selected for the sale both in terms of pedigree and athletism’, some 88 show jumping and eventing-bred foals will be presented by leading Irish breeders and the Irish Horse Centre team at Glenamaddy Equestrian Centre next Saturday, October 9th, with selling commencing at 11am.
The full collection is now available on the Irish Horse Centre Platform (www.ihc.auction/home).
All foals are fully showcased with pictures, pedigree reports and videos on the Irish Horse Centre hybrid auction platform (www.ihc.auction), designed by Belgium-based PWEB Solutions which features a live and online bidding function to facilitate the international market. PWEB will also livestream the sale on the day to attract a larger bidding audience.
The Mayo Roscommon Breeders’ Group (MRBG) also partnered with the Horse Pay team of Michael O’Flynn and Shane McCarthy to launch a strong online social media campaign towards the promotion of this year’s sale as well as using traditional marketing, nationally and internationally.
The Irish Horse Centre ‘Market Place’ will also also be launched at the foal sale next Saturday, October 9th which is another addition to the current platform which will facilitate year-round marketing and promotion of Irish Sport Horses via the IHC Platform.
