The action is well underway this week in Wexford, Ireland where the annual Goresbridge ‘Go For Gold’ Select Event Horse sale takes place at Barnadown and the Ambersprings Hotel. Each year, professionals and amateur riders alike peruse the online catalog and in-person viewings, searching for their next eventing partner. We’ve even seen a few well-known show jump riders taking part in this sale, in addition to multiple eventing Olympians and a healthy dose of shopping amateur riders.

Tilly Berendt has journeyed to Ireland this week to take in the sale for the first time (though we’ve given her a strict $5 bidding limit — she may come home with a piece of a tail, perhaps), and you’ll have much more coming your way from her in the coming days. For now, here’s the lowdown on how to view and participate in the sale, even if you aren’t in Ireland this week.

The Schedule

The Go For Gold hosts always put on a live viewing of all lots, as well as a replay of the live stream for those who are unable to see it in real time. I’ll drop the YouTube links below for the streams you’ll have missed to this point, and the remainder of the schedule is as follows:

Day 1 – November 14th – Lots 1 -27 – [View replays here]
