Frequently Asked Questions

How can I bid?

In order to bid on any horses, you must first register as a user. Register now.

Bidding is open from noon on Saturday 30th May until the evening of Sunday 31st May. The end times of the auction listings are staggered and are shown on each listing. There is no need to wait until the last minute to bid. If a bid is placed during the last 5 minutes of the auction, the auction will be extended for a further 5 minutes. The time extension will be recurring until there are no further bids.

How do I pay?

In order to bid you must register on our website and provide valid credit or debit card details at registration. When the auction has finished, the site will automatically debit the winning amount from winner’s credit card and transfers the money to us directly. This process is managed by Stripe, a payment management service. If there are any issues, for example if the payment failed, we will contact you after the auction has finished.

Please make sure that your card limit will accommodate your bidding activity.

Do the horses have a reserve price?

How are my details stored?

How will I know if I am the successful bidder?

You will be notified by email automatically if you are the successful bidder. We will then contact you to arrange delivery or collection of your horse.

How does collection work?

Ideally, arrangements should be made for horses to be collected within the first week, after that it is £75 per week.

Are all horses vetted?

2 year olds to 5 year olds (not in foal) have X-RAYS.

All horses are open to vetting.

Should a purchaser require a veterinary inspection, this must take place at Renkum Stud prior to collection. Only then will a refund be offered if necessary.
