Welcome to the online bidding platform for the Storm Horse Auction! Horse Auctions USA is SO excited to be a part of this outstanding horse sale!

Consigned horses will be posted here for viewing prior to the sale so you can shop them and pick your favorites! Until final hip numbers/selling order is assigned, horses will appear on here with a 4 digit lot number and in random order. This allows us to get the horses up and listed in one place. As hip numbers are assigned, the online listings will be updated to reflect those. On sale day, horses will sell in numerical order by hip number. 

Here on this online bidding platform, you can watch and bid live on sale day. can also utilize absentee bidding!

As soon as a horse, pony, mule, or donkey is posted, early absentee bidding becomes available to you! This works much like ebay for those of you familiar with that. You can place your maximum bid ahead of time and the computer will then act as your agent at sale time, bidding on your behalf by minimum increments to keep you in the lead. This option is useful for those of you with poor internet/cell service at home, those who are unable to watch live for any reason, and also for you folks who find the fast pace of a live auction to be intimidating. PLEASE NOTE that if you place an early absentee bid and that animal comes into the ring with an announcement that changes the information that was available to you when you placed your bid (i.e. the horse cribs but that was not disclosed in the listing) we will NOT honor your pre-bid for your protection. We want you to bid with the most accurate information available!

For those of you who prefer to watch and bid live, you’ll have real time audio/video available to you at sale time! On sale day, you'll use the "View Live" icon under the sale to join the live feed. Make sure you have registered to bid, are logged in, and then hit the “Play” button on the live feed!  You’ll be good to go and can participate just as if you were here in person!

For those of you using a mobile device, we do recommend downloading the Horse Auctions USA app for the best bidding experience! It is available FREE to download from the Google Play and App Stores!  If you prefer to use your browser, we do recommend using Google Chrome

You will need to register with a credit/debit card in order to bid online. Please note that a pre-authorization for $500 will be placed on your registered card. This is NOT a charge, just an authorization to verify you are indeed a real person with a real card and is a good faith hold to allow you to bid. This authorization will fall off once the sale is complete and any purchases you have made are paid for. You DO NOT have to pay for your purchases with this card – cash or check at pick up is perfectly acceptable! At the conclusion of the auction, this preauthorization will disappear as if it was never there. 

Winning bidders should contact Teresa at 641-485-4850 to confirm preferred payment method, make payment for purchases,  and pickup arrangements! 

If you need any assistance with online bidding or have any questions pertaining to it, please call/text Bridget at (336) 904-8903.  Please be sure to do so BEFORE we start the horse sale and preferably before 12:00pm. Once we start, Bridget is on the auction block and unable to answer calls!  Register BEFORE the sale so we can assist you with anything you might need!

There is a 4% Online Buyer's Premium applied to ALL winning online bids. 

PLEASE BID RESPONSIBLY! Bidding online is no different than bidding in person and comes with the same responsibilities. Your bid is a LEGALLY BINDING CONTRACT, whether placed in person or online and we take this very seriously. Thank you for your cooperation!

INTERNET BIDDERS PLEASE NOTE! When you register to bid, Horse Auctions USA will place a $500 preauthorization on the credit or debit card that you register with. This is NOT a charge, just a preauthorization. Your mobile banking may send a notification that appears as a charge - AGAIN, it is just a preauthorization. The $500 will show as "pending" and then never complete but rather, will just vanish as if it was never there.  Once the sale is complete, this preauthorization is released for all non-winning bidders. Winning bidders will have the preauthorization lifted once final settlement is made with the auction company. If for any reason you as a winning bidder fail to make final payment to the auction company before the open of business on Monday, you understand that Horse Auctions USA will finalize the $500 preauthorization and remit it to the auction company to be applied to your bill. Further, you understand that Horse Auctions USA will charge your registered card for the full amount due to the auction company for your winning bids. BID RESPONSIBLY and remember, your bid is a legally binding contract! You are responsible for your winning bids.
