Fantastic finish to Cavan horse sales year

CAVAN Horse Sales followed their upward trend to experience a fantastic end to the sales year. Growth in Turnover, Percentage Sold and Average Price all continued upwards, resulting in some intense trading both ring side and online.

The Performance Sale presided over by the dynamic duo of Auctioneers, George and Robert, worked their magic and, with very active bidding on the many Lots on offer, buyers surely made their presence felt.

‘European Cruise’, an 11-year-old grey gelding campaigned by Robyn Moran with 864 SJI points, achieved the top price of €30,000 when purchased by show jumper Claire McGrath, whom will surely add to the points tally!

The handsome young five-year-old 148 ‘Lincoln Rowan’ was the pony sale topper at €15,500 and will surely be one to watch for the future.

25 horses sold for over €7,000 and 12 ponies sold for over €5,000, which certainly helped to generate a fantastic sale average of €6,200.
