This sale is webcast live with internet bidding through Horse Auctions USA for those who cannot attend in person! The very best online bidding experience is through the Horse Auctions USA app which is available for both iPhone & Android in the Apple & Google Play Stores. If you prefer to bid from your computer, you may do so through this link: bid.horseauctionsusa.com  Google Chrome is the recommended browser if you wish to bid from a computer. 

All internet bidding related questions should be directed to Bridget Lavigne with Horse Auctions USA at (336) 904-8903  Calls or texts are welcome

Early online absentee bidding will open September 1st!  It is possible that the sale catalog will NOT be completely finalized by then, however, you will still be able to place early absentee bids on listed horses, even if their final lot number has not yet been assigned. 



You may place prebids prior to the start of the sale. Prebidding/Early Absentee Bidding becomes available to you well before sale day!

This is a useful feature if you will be unable to watch live on sale day, have poor cell service/internet connectivity, or just prefer to bid in a relaxed manner without the pressure of a live auction.  Pre-bidding works just like eBay! You'll place your maximum bid then sit back and let the computer do the work for you! The computer will only raise your bid incrementally as needed to keep you in the winning position! 

PLEASE NOTE that if a horse comes into the ring and an announcement is made or something is visible that was not disclosed in the information that was available to you ahead of time (i.e. - horse is announced to crib, horse is visibly lame, was injured on the trailer, has a large scar that wasn't mentioned, etc) and there are prebids placed on that horse, we WILL NOT honor those prebids for your protection. We want you to bid with confidence and the most accurate information available. No need to send you an unwelcome surprise!

You can increase your maximum bid if needed at any time! 

Live Bidding on Sale Day

When we go live at sale time, you can watch in real time with NO delay and bid right from your smart phone or computer, just as if you were with us in person! You'll have real time video & audio with bid buttons so you can bid right along with the folks who are there in person! 

TWO WAYS to bid online!   For the best bidding experience, we recommend downloading the Horse Auctions USA app which is available for both iPhone and Android on the Apple & Google Play Stores. Just search "Horse Auctions USA" and download free!  You can set your app to send you instant "outbid" notifications and other important announcements!  It is easy to use and works perfectly for folks on the go!

Alternatively, you can bid from your computer.

We recommend using Google Chrome. 

Go to bid.horseauctionsusa.com and scroll to Ocala Horse Sale. 



You will need to use a valid debit or credit card to register for online bidding.

Your card WILL NOT be charged upon registration, but it will be authorized to be sure it is valid. Some mobile banking apps will send you a notification that looks like a charge. DON'T PANIC! We ARE NOT charging you to register as an online bidder - just making sure you are a real person with a working card. This is an unfortunate necessity in this day and time. That preauthorization will NEVER COMPLETE and will fall off like it was never there. It IS NOT a charge!  We remove the authorization immediately on our end at the completion of the sale. When it officially falls off on your end is entirely dependent on your bank.  You do NOT have to use the card you register with for final payment, and are welcome to pay cash or check at pick up on Saturday or Sunday!

Sale Terms & Conditions

No. 1 Governing Law: RC Auction Co, LLC D.B.A Ocala Horse Sale, Sale
Manager, is known and recognized as sale management and is an
independent contractor regularly engaged in the business of conducting
consignment sales of horses. The Sale Management or any representative
thereof is not responsible for any liability whatsoever, including, but not
limited to, the loss, damage, injury, death or illness of any animal, person,
or property before, during, or after the sale. All horses consigned to the
sale are offered in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida.
All transactions between Buyer, Consignor, and Sale Management are
governed by the laws of the State of Florida. In the event of any legal
dispute between Buyer or Consignor, Sale Management will occupy the
position of Agent for a disclosed Principal and Stakeholder and will be
discharged from all obligations owing to the Consignor or Buyer upon
delivery of any property or funds held by Sale Management to the Court
having jurisdiction of such dispute.
No. 2 Bidding Procedure: The highest bidder shall become the Buyer. Any
successful bidder shall sign a Buyers Acknowledgment (‘ticket’) which shall
be presented by an auction clerk immediately after the purchase has been
made. The right to pass-out
(P.O) is reserved by Consignor or his representative. Any such action must
be made prior to the
Consignor’s horse departing the auction arena. Title
to the animal passes to the Buyer automatically at the final fall of the
auctioneer’s gavel unless such pass-out (P.O.) is clearly indicated
immediately by Consignor, his representative, or the auctioneer. Sale
Management and/or auctioneer(s) reserve the right to reject any and all
No. 3 Bidding Disputes: If a dispute should arise between or among two or
more bidders, the auctioneer shall settle the dispute and his decision shall
be absolute, final, and binding on all parties. In such case, the auctioneer
has the right to reopen the bidding procedure and ask for advanced bids
solely between the bidders having claimed the last bid. If there is no
advance bid, the horse shall be sold to the bidder from whom the
auctioneer recognized the final bid. If, for any reason, the bid should be
reduced below the recognized bid at the beginning of such a dispute, the

auctioneer may reopen the bidding to all bidders with the highest bidder
becoming the Buyer regardless of whether or not the final bid exceeds the
bid which was originally disputed.
No. 4 Title And Delivery: Title – Title passes to the Buyer automatically at
the final fall of the auctioneer’s gavel. At such time Buyer assumes all risk
of loss. The responsibility, maintenance, care, and expenses for the horse
shall pass immediately from Consignor to Buyer at the final fall of the gavel.
This shall especially be the condition in the case of illness, injury, or death
of any horse after it has been sold. Upon passage of title, Buyer agrees to
indemnify and hold Sale Management or any representative thereof,
harmless from all loss, cost and expense arising from any or all of the
(1) the illness, injury or death of purchased animal;
(2) loss or damage to property; (3) injury or death of persons caused by the
Buyer, his agents, his employees or by the purchased animal. Title and all
risks are assumed by Buyer whether or not Delivery has been made.
Delivery – Delivery of a purchased animal shall be contingent upon Buyer
making a full settlement to the sale cashier as described in Conditions.
No. 5 After a satisfactory settlement is made, delivery will be in the form of
a Release for the horse from the auction grounds. In addition to the
Release, Buyer will receive a current Coggins test, a copy of the
registration papers or registration application. After Delivery has been
made, Buyer shall remove the horse within the specified time announced
prior to the commencement of the auction and shall be subject to any
charges associated with the purchase should Buyer fail to do so.
No. 6 Settlement: Settlement for any purchase must be made in full and
paid directly to the sale cashier within the specified time announced prior to
the commencement of the auction. The Buyer’s Acknowledgement of
Purchase is not transferable without the approval of Sale Management.
Payment to any other source is prohibited and is not recognized as
Settlement. All payment must be made directly to the sale cashier.
Settlement for any purchase must be made for the full purchase price with
U.S. Currency or with funds from a U.S. Bank in the form of certified check,
travelers check, or bank check which has been verified and approved in
advance by Sale Management. A valid driver’s license and/or other
approved forms of positive identification are required upon Settlement.

Any person signing a check in the State of Florida is liable for the full
amount of the check. Any party issuing a check returned as “insufficient
funds”, “payment stopped” or “account closed” or a check that for any other
reason does not clear the drawee’s bank will be prosecuted to the full
extent of the law. Appropriate legal services will be obtained in whatever
jurisdiction necessary to secure performance of any payment given as
Settlement. All costs, including attorney’s fees, incurred by Sale
Management to secure performance shall be the responsibility of the party
issuing such payment.

immediately turned over to the District Attorney's Office for collection and
charges. Cost of collection, including attorney's fees will be assessed to the
buyer. Credit Card Chargebacks are NOT permitted.
No. 7 Defaulters: All Buyers shall be responsible for the full purchase price
as stated for the horse.
Buyers who fail in any respect whatsoever to make Settlement as
described in Condition No. 6 shall be declared in default. Any horse
purchased by a defaulter may be resold by Sale Management. All costs
associated with such resale shall be borne by the defaulter. Should such a
resale fail to satisfy in full the defaulter’s balance due, the defaulter shall
immediately pay Sale Management the amount of the balance owed. If
defaulter fails for any reason to pay all of the balance owing, the Consignor
or Sale Management may bring suit against the defaulter who shall be
responsible for all costs, including attorney’s fees, incurred by Sale
Management in collection of amounts owing or in enforcement or
interpretation of the Sale Condition.
No. 8 Warranties:
A. Prospective Buyers are hereby cautioned and advised by Sale
Management to examine horses thoroughly prior to purchasing.
B. Horses sold in our auction as SOUND are guaranteed for 48 hours!
This soundness guarantee means no crib, no weave, no lameness, no
parrot mouth (overbite or underbite), sound of wind, and sight with no
impairment in both eyes. The warranty also protects the buyers against
blatant misrepresentation such as age and usability. If you purchase a
horse sold sound and find any of the above issues, please contact us within
48 hours.

Note: The soundness warrantee is limited to horses that are not announced
to be as is by the auctioneer.
Note: Failure of a flexion test alone without otherwise visible lameness is
NOT sufficient to declare a horse unsound.
Note: Conformation flaws such as toeing in or out are not an unsoundness.
Note: Major blemishes or defects disclosed in the auction ring will not be
covered under the warranty.
C.Ocala Horse Sale is not responsible for any discrepancies as to the age
of any horse being sold Grade or Unregistered. Ocala Horse Sale depends
on the consignor completely for the age and description of all horses. If a
horse's age is misrepresented, (by more than a couple years), that falls
under the "Blatant Misrepresentation" portion of our 48 hour Guarantee,
and MUST be reported prior to the Monday following the sale, no later than
8pm. Ocala Horse Sale will be the final decision maker if a dispute should
arise, and by participating in the auction, both buyer and seller agree to
these terms.

misunderstanding. A recording will be made of the entire auction that may
be used to help settle disputes regarding statements about the horses
while in the auction arena.
E. All animals sold at this auction are sold with no implied warranty of
merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. The Consignor is the
party responsible for all representations or warranties expressed or implied
concerning the condition of any horse and buyers should satisfy
themselves concerning the condition before purchasing.

Management or any representative thereof regarding pregnancy status,
eventual foaling, or fertility of any animal offered in this sale. Final
pregnancy status on broodmares will be announced at time of sale and will

contractual agreements between owners of broodmares in the sale and
owners of stallions to which these mares may have been bred are strictly
between Buyer and Seller.

No. 10 Catalog and announcements:
Buyers are cautioned to pay close attention to announcements from the
auction block regarding changes in the sale catalog and such
announcements take precedence over printed material. The accuracy of all
information in the catalog is the sole responsibility of the Consignor. It is
solely the responsibility of the Consignor to verify the accuracy of such
information and to make certain such changes are made public while the
animal is in the auction arena. Sale Management or any representative
thereof does not assume any responsibility or liability for errors or
omissions or for any verbal or written statement regarding the animal sold
