New and Improved Sales Calendar

Welsh Pony & Cob Announce New Sales Programme

A new and improved Autumn Sales calendar will be put in place for 2017. Brightwells have taken this decision in order to better utilise the facilities on offer at The Royal Welsh Showground, for both vendors and purchasers. We also hope that moving the Fayre Oaks Sale back a few weeks, will help foal breeders, as it will give them a little longer to prepare their beautiful fillies and colts.

Fayre Oaks will move from its normal September date to Saturday 14th & Sunday 15th October. A fortnight later the Autumn Cob Sale will follow, on Friday, Saturday & Sunday 27th-29th October. The Hay at Hereford Sale is set to take place a week after that on Saturday 4th & Sunday 5th November 2017.

The two events at The Royal Welsh Showground will also use the same building from 2017, with the Glamorgan Hall now playing host to both sales.

The sale ring set up for the Autumn Cob Sale will be similar to past years, but the Fayre Oaks ring will be designed to accommodate an improved sale arena, with tables for the Saturday evening dinner being on the ground floor around the ring. The High-Flyer event will still continue to take place on the Saturday evening, in conjunction with the dinner followed by the usual party.

“This will be a new beginning for us all, and I am sure the atmosphere for both Fayre Oaks and the Autumn Cob Sale will be as marvellous as ever. The new sales calendar will establish a regular sales format for both vendors and purchasers, which we are sure will be enthusiastically supported by all.” Catryn Bigley, Brightwells Head of Welsh Pony & Cob

The 2017 Welsh Pony & Cob sales programme will begin at The Royal Welsh Showground in Builth Wells on Saturday 13th May with The Spring Sale and we look forward to welcoming you all there.
