Silent Auction

In an amazing show of support towards our sport, leading stallion owners, trade vendors and sponsors continually offer up to $5000 each in products/services towards the Silent Auction and Raffles – with all proceeds being 100% directed back to Dressage in Queensland.

Each year we run an exciting Silent Auction in which goods are displayed and bid on (via a written bidding sheet) throughout the day. Upon conclusion the person with the highest written bid is the lucky winner of that item/service!

Often these items are won at half their valued price, so make sure you check out the Silent Auction on the day and be in with a chance to snap up a bargain. Also don't miss the IHB Stallion Display in the main arena at 2:00pm!
