Elite Horse & Pony sales in the heart of England
Tuesday 29 May 2018
Arena UK and Melton Mowbray Market today announced a partnership to provide Elite Horse and Pony Sales in the heart of England.
The partnership begins with Sales at the British Showjumping Show on Thursday 19 July and a dedicated Horse & Pony sale on Sunday 12 August 2018.
Arena UK provides the UK’s largest indoor and all-weather arenas, making it the perfect place to show horses for sale. Melton Mowbray Market has been selling horses for most of its 1,000 year history and its general sales are recognised as the best of their type in the country.
Teresa Stratford, General Manager of Arena UK said:
“We are delighted to forge a partnership with Melton Mowbray Market to bring elite horse and pony sales to the East Midlands where the equestrian community can buy and sell animals with complete confidence and we look forward to a long and successful business relationship.”
Tim Webster, Market Manager & Head of Horse Sales at Melton Mowbray Market said:
“Melton Mowbray and its surrounding area is prime horse country and hitherto, customers have had to travel West or to Ireland to buy or sell their animals. With this partnership we bring our selling expertise together with Arena UK’s premier facilities to deliver a premium experience in the heart of England for the benefit of our customers and their horses.”
Joss Williams, International Horse Jumper and Equine Agent, said:
“The combination of Melton Mowbray Market’s auction expertise with Arena UK’s superb facilities, will provide a fantastic venue for us as both buyers and sellers. I look forward to these and many more sales.”
These two sales represent the first stage of the partnership between the two firms and further sales are anticipated.
