SOUTH WEST HORSE SALE
NEWTON ABBOT ON TUESDAY 1st APRIL 2014
A short entry of horses and ponies forward continued to meet a selective demand although quality riding horses are selling well with an 8 year old coloured cob, regularly hunted, selling to £960, few ponies offered sold to £165 for a New Forest. Young stock met a limited demand although quality sorts with potential created some interest.
Just under 300 lots of saddlery and equipment met a buoyant trade with many new buyers in attendance with Saddles to £90 (twice) Bridles to £33 and a Hunting Coat selling for £46.

**HORSE SALE REPORTS**
**HORSE SALE NEWS**
The auctioneers behind one of the largest horse and pony sales in the country have announced they are to move it to Newton Abbot in what is being hailed as a "welcome boost" to the town's economy.
Sawdye and Harris took over what they described as "a very run down sale" at Exeter Livestock Centre four years ago. They have built it up into the second biggest monthly sale in the country, with buyers travelling from Wales, the Midlands and the east of the country as well as the farthest reaches of the Duchy.
The auctioneers are based in Newton Abbot so say the decision to transfer it to the town "seemed to make sense" – particularly in view of a proposed future relocation to a new facility nearby. In addition to the regular livestock markets, there will now be a horse sale on the first Tuesday of every month.
Gordon Chambers, auctioneer at Sawdye and Harris, said: "We are delighted to announce this move and looking forward to our first South West Horse Sale here at Newton Abbot Livestock Market.
"We expect to see in the region of 60 horses and ponies at our first auction and up to 600 lots of saddlery, tack and equipment."
Newton Abbot town development manager Sally Henley added: "This is a very welcome development and one which will further boost business throughout the whole town on these auction days.
"Visitors travelling to Newton Abbot are sure to make the most of their visit and once they have completed their transactions at the auction, will no doubt take the opportunity to do a spot of shopping and have some lunch in the town as well. I wish Sawdye and Harris every success with this initiative."
The mayor of Newton Abbot, Councillor Colin Parker, will be performing the official opening of the sale on April 3 at 10.30am.

Another delighted client following on from our successful horse sale last week ...
Good Morning, I just wanted to say thank-you to your excellent staff for their coutesy & help when we travelled down to your Sale from Llandysul last week. My son & I travelled through the most foul weather to secure the safety of 2 of the late Countess of Dysart's aged mares, & just everyone of your staff that we came in contact with, was helpful, kind & polite.
The 2 mares have gone to Mr & Mrs Carters Milcroft Stud until we can bring them home on the weekend. They will then spend the rest of their days with some 10 other Polaris animals.
Again, my thanks to you all,
Mrs D Bethell - Cross Foxes Stud
