Robertson Equine Sales President Jimmy Robertson has revealed plans to hold the auction house’s next equine sale, June 9-10, in the outdoor arena at the Shelbyville, Kentucky, fairgrounds.
“With the Spring Sale’s rescheduling until June, we are hopeful that we’ll have favorable weather to give each horse a true show ring to be presented in,” Robertson said. “It’s a venue that’s ideal for any show horse, and especially for driving horses.”
Mentioning that the show horse community has pent-up demand for entertaining, outside events, Robertson also said that presenting horses outdoors is a safer, healthier environment for COVID-19 compliance. “We’ll observe whatever rules are still in place by June – masks, social distancing, etc. – but weather permitting, we’re excited to give our clients and guests a more entertaining and enjoyable sales event.” Should inclement weather occur, the event will be held indoors at the Bradley Barn at the fairgrounds.
Entries are being accepted until May 3 at RobertsonEquineSales.com, via fax to 502.633.4041, and by mail to P. O. Box 616, Simpsonville, KY 40067. For questions, contact Jimmy Robertson at 502.802.6977 and Jimmy@RobertsonEquineSales.com.
