SMB Consignment Services

SMB Horse Sales holds multiple consignment sales each year.  Horse owners   can submit a horse for consideration in a sale by submitting our consignment form online and and paying the consignment fee prior to the deadline for that sale.  Spots in the sale will only be secured once confirmation is received from SMB the horse was selected for the sale.  Consignment fees will be refunded on any horses not selected for the sale.

To be considered in the selection process for a sale there must be at least one QUALITY picture, completed consignment form submitted, consignment fee paid, and registration information provided (for registered horses).  All sales will include previews and live sales may have discipline specific events (ranch rodeo / trail class / roping / team penning / cutting / reining / barrel racing / etc.) based on the focus of the sale.  We also offer production sale services for breeders  and trainers (please contact us for details).   Click the button below to consign a horse online.

Seller Requirements
  • Proof of ownership (For Utah horses this is a current valid Brand Inspection and starting in 2017 brand inspection must be specific to the sale).
  • Registration paperwork for registered horses with signed transfer
  • Health Certificate
  • Coggins Test - plan ahead Coggins tests typically take several days to get back from your vet
  • General Pre-Purchase Report for Online Only Sales.
  • SMB requires consignors to include information on any soundness issues when submitting a horse.  Horses with significant "soundness" issues will not be accepted in our sale.  Horses requiring maintenance that are accepted in a sale, must included details around the maintenance history and requirements in the catalog write up.  
  • As Definition of "Soundness" varies even between Veterinarians, SMB does not attempt to define "soundness" - instead SMB provides buyers the opportunity to arrange Pre-Purchase exams prior to the sale.  SMB encourages buyers to take advantage of opportunity to have a vet examine the horse in a pre-purchase exam.
  • Consignors are solely responsible for any misrepresentation of a horse.  While SMB may at times mediate issues between buyers and the consignor, SMB will not assist in mediating any disagreements more than 7 days after the sale.  All guarantees are strictly between the buyer and sellers - SMB acts as an agent only.
  • SMB contracts a veterinarian to do a general inspection all horses at check in of each "live" sale and all findings of the vet will be announced prior to any horses entering the sale ring. Buyers can arrange for the contracted vet to perform a more detailed pre-purchase exam (at buyers expense) the day of the sale or arrange exams prior to the sale by contacting SMB.
