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:  Google Chrome is the recommended browser if you wish to bid from a computer. 

We'll get a comprehensive online bidding video tutorial up and available as we get a little closer to sale day and the link for that will be posted right here!

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

Early online absentee bidding will open August 1st!


You may place prebids prior to the start of the sale. Prebidding/Early Absentee Bidding becomes available to you August 1st, several weeks prior to 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 and scroll to NPEC Mount Up 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.  (Much like when you rent a car!)  You do NOT have to use the card you register with for final payment, and are welcome to pay by cash, cashier's check, money order, or approved check at pick up on Saturday!

NPEC Mount Up Sale Terms

All consignments must have a good halter and lead rope, otherwise the sale committee will supply one at the cost of the seller. No horses will be allowed to leave the sale grounds by Saturday night unless other arrangements have been made with the sale committee. All sellers are responsible for the horses up until the gavel falls, after which the buyer is in full responsibility.

 The sale committee of the NPEC Mount Up Sale reserves the right to reject any horses for any reason including but not limited to; unsoundness, poor condition, and improper documentation of registration or health and Coggins papers.


Ages, heights, markings and physical conditions are approximated and not guaranteed. It is the responsibility and obligation of the buyer to examine the horse before He or She bids. All sales are final. In case of Typographical errors or other errors are discovered, the auctioneer will announce them, which will take precedence over the printed catalog. Buyers are therefore cautioned to pay attention to the auctioneer’s announcements.

Buyer’s Payments

Buyers shall pay for the horse(s) prior to the conclusion of the sale by one of the following means; Cash, Approved personal check, Money order or Cashiers check. U.S. Funds Only. Checks are to be made payable to NPEC Mount Up Sale. A $100.00 service charge will be assessed to all bad checks, (NSF, stop payment, ETC.) We Also Accept Credit Cards (4% Buyers Premium For Credit Cards) Online bidders will be charged a 4% online buyer's premium on the final bid of the horse.


No guarantees whatsoever, expressed or implied, are made by the sale committee, the auctioneers, pedigree readers, bid spotters, or anyone associated with the NPEC Mount Up Sale or Horse Auctions USA, as to the title, quality, unsoundness or soundness of any consignments. Presentations given in writing by the consigners. Any claims made based upon said presentation, guarantees, or omissions, shall be made against the consigner only and not the sale committee or any persons related to the sale. Seller’s Statements of soundness or unsoundness will be announced at the sale.


Everyone is urged to use caution and care while attending the sale. The NPEC Mount Up Sale, and all of the committee members, and all those associated with the sale in any way shall not be liable for any injuries sustained by anyone attending the sale. All parties entering the grounds where the sale is held do so at their own risk and further agree that the organization responsible for the sale is hereby released from any liability or responsibility for any injuries sustained by them during the attendance of the sale and its related activities from any case whatsoever.

 Transportation arrangements & cost are the responsibility of the Buyer. 

INTERNET BIDDERS PLEASE NOTE! When you register to bid, Horse Auctions USA will place a $1000 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 $1000 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 $1000 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.
