About us

Our Mission

The Australian Show Jumping Horse Sale aims to bring transparency and credibility to the Show Jumping Horses market to create a meeting point for buyers and sellers. The Australian Show Jumping Horse Sale strives to bring a unique experience for buyers and sellers as well as innovation through an advanced agricultural show platform.

Our Vision

The Sunshine Coast Agricultural Show recognises the considerable value that equine sports, particularly Show Jumping, provide to the sustainability of the agricultural show movement. Our vision is to strengthen our investment in the Showjumping industry by hosting a premier Horse Auction and giving back to the industry through our Futurity Classes in the proceeding years.

Our Actions

The Australian Show Jumping Horse sale will be conducted both as a physical live auction and via live online auction. Following registration of their horses, the Vendor has the opportunity to upload results from competitions and promote opportunities to view the horse at other events to Buyers in the lead up to the Australian Show Jumping Horse Sale. At the 2024 Sunshine Coast Agricultural Show, there will be a opportunities for Buyers to inspect and ride Australian Show Jumping Horse Sale registered horses (with the vendors consent). This website and catalogue platform allows the Vendor to market their horse to Buyers from across Australia.
