Sale in the Swamp

2 Year Old Performance Horse Sale

The University of Florida Equine Program produces its annual 2 year old performance horse sale each spring.  A capstone project that brings together years of hard work for many of our students, donors, alumni, and staff that demonstrates our programs commitment to education and production.  Many of our graduating seniors have had the opportunity to follow these young horses through the various courses offered as part of the Equine Sciences Program.  Our young horses are handled routinely through our practicum courses such as...

  • Breeding
  • Foaling
  • Weanling Handling
  • and Psychology and Training

The program breeds, trains, and sells 16 - 20 head each year in this sale.  Our students are involved each step of the way with the sale proceeds returning to the program helping us achieve an outstanding teaching, research, and extension program.

University of Florida Sale in the Swamp is held online in partnership with Affinity Auction Group.

A SOFT CLOSE bidding system will be used. Bidding will begin to close April 27, 2024 at 4:00 pm (EST). If any bids are received within the last 5 minutes of the sale close, an additional 5 minutes will be added to the entire sale. Only after a 5-minute period with no additional bidding passes, will the bidding on all horses close.

A bidder may place individual bids. Alternatively, a Bidder may place maximum (proxy) bids where they declare the maximum dollar amount they want to bid, and the computer will bid on their behalf until they have successfully purchased the horse or the asking price exceeds the amount of their maximum bid.
