In spite of the bijou nature of some sections of the final T & S carriage sale of the year, a good sized and enthusiastic crowd of buyers turned out on a chilly day in Reading market. This end of year sale provides an excellent opportunity to clear out before the winter season.

46th Reading Autumn Show & Sale of Shetland Ponies October 2014 – press release - October 27th, 2014

Thimbleby & Shorland held their 46th Autumn Show & Sale of Shetland Ponies, under the auspices of the Shetland Pony Stud Book Society, on Wednesday 22nd October, a week later than last year.  Entries were 133, 50 less than last year but on a par with 2012.  The reduction in entries of over 25% was probably a good thing in terms of the trade.  They were made up of 16 colt foals, 37 filly foals, 8 licensed stallions, 6 entire males, 3 geldings and 63 mares & fillies. 

There was a good company of buyers from across the country, as well as from Holland, Belgium, and Austria, demonstrating that the sale continues to reach an international market.  Of the 118 ponies that were offered, 89 were sold, which represents a very satisfactory clearance rate of 75%, compared to a disappointing 55% in 2013.   

Top price, of 1,025 guineas, went to Mr Brightwell’s 3 year old filly Sharptor Madison, a daughter of Seva Lucky Dip out of a Sharptor mare who had been running with Lonarth Puzzle.  She was also winner of her class in the pre-sale Show, and Show Reserve Champion.  

Show Champion - Annwood Vector

Show Champion Standard Shetland Annwood Vector with his owner Mrs Barr and Thimbleby & Shorland’s Chris Boreham

Show Champion was Mrs Barr’s good looking standard Shetland Annwood Vector, a 4 year old gelding who has already been ridden, and sold after spirited bidding for 850 guineas.  

11 of the 14 colt foals offered were sold, the top price being 230 guineas and the average 78 guineas. The clearance rate of the filly foals was an encouraging 85%, the top price being 840 guineas for Mr Pearse’s well-bred Mardlebrook Tiptoe.  Mr & Mrs Britland’s 5 year old stallion Yarpha Veena topped that section at 720 guineas.  There was a poor trade for entire males, although perhaps unsurprisingly.  75% of the junior mares and fillies sold, and 69% of the senior mares, the top price for which was Mrs Robins’s Kerswell Swallow-tail at 950 guineas.    

Auctioneer Chris Boreham commented “The trade was significantly better than last year.  Hopefully 2013 marked the low point in the market for Shetlands.  There was a much more positive atmosphere this year and everyone was in good spirits.  The lower entry undoubtedly helped trade, and although there were no exceptional prices paid the clearance rate was much higher than in 2013 which shows that there was good demand.  Overall quality was also generally considered to be higher than last year.  We look forward to the confidence levels continuing to improve.”
