Exceptional trade witnessed at Cavan’s August Sales

THERE are many adjectives that could be used to describe the August Sales at Cavan – ‘Spectacular’, ‘Remarkable’, ‘Stupendous’ and the list goes on – but witnessing it was an experience in itself! The atmosphere was electric, with the incredible amount of online and floor bidding and it was evident even then that the percentage of movement was going to be good.

From Premier Three-Year-Old horses with top breeding to young ponies starting their jumping career, all were in high demand with the many buyers battling to win out.

Many National Irish Show jumpers, along with the Eventing fraternity and overseas professionals acquired some fantastic future prospects at the Premier Three-Year-Old Sale.
