To keep bidders safe from health risks, Robertson Equine Sales President Jimmy Robertson has arranged new procedures for phone bidding – and will credit one month’s online viewing fee to Richfield Video Archives (www.RVP.tv) for anyone who purchases a horse via phone bid.*
“Helen and I enjoy welcoming all attendees to our sales, but this year, there are compelling reasons to provide incentives for people to stay home, stay healthy, but still enjoy participating in the show horse business," said Robertson.
A new phone bidding procedure – that must be set up prior to the sale — involves completing a PDF form located at http://www.robertsonequinesales.com/images/RES_Phone_Bid_Auth_Form_2020.pdf, or, simply scan the attached QR code with your smartphone (then, print and fax or email to RES).
Further, purchasers will remain in their seats or in the sales arena to complete the purchase transaction. Masks will be required inside each building, and daily temperature checks will be made for each attendee. Enhanced cleaning procedures also will be in effect. RES has activated a Health & Safety Awareness plan, headed by Carol Reams, R.N., and health safety team members will be on site throughout the event to help ensure guests’ safety. RES’s complete safety plan is outlined at RobertsonEquineSales.com.
Richfield Video Archives’ President R.H. Bennett suggests that persons subscribe for the live webcast a few days before the sale, as the minimum one-month subscription ($24.99) will still be in effect on the days of the sale. “Enter your credit card number and viewing will begin almost immediately – but please don’t wait until the last minute. Set it up in plenty of time so you don’t miss the horse you want to bid on,” Bennett suggested. Visit www.RVP.tv to set up your subscription.
*Rebate of $25 will be credited by RES to purchaser of a horse via phone bidding on Oct. 30 or Oct. 31. Persons in sales arena are not eligible for this offer.
