HOW WE WORK
$200 Consignment Fee · 8% Commission · No Pass Out Fee · Soft Close
Includes individualized National advertising!
Maximum of 5 horses during each auction ending period.
Not all horses and ponies are accepted. Please submit a Consignment Request to get on our waitlist and see if we’re a good fit. All consignments should be suited for cow work or performance and riding horses/ponies must demonstrate cow work abilities.
Cowpony Sales is your professional online hub for available western performance horses. Bi-weekly auctions start Wednesday evening and end the second Tuesday evening, giving buyers time to fully investigate prospective purchases. For the sellers, this time allows Cowpony Sales the time to fully utilize multiple advertising avenues to maximize exposure. Each horse consigned will have multiple photos as well as video that accurately show the consigned horse. Additionally, each horse will have a detailed health and fitness form fully completed and signed by the consigner to give buyers confidence. Upon conclusion of the auction, Cowpony Sales will manage all the monetary transactions to ensure both parties equal protection. By accepting multiple forms of payment, we give buyers the option that work best for their situation.
Our number one goal is to make this easy and convenient for both buyers and sellers.
