A Two-Time Champion Auctioneer, Brian Rigby has been serving the Auction and Equine Industries professionally for over thirty years. A graduate of UMC, Brian attended Missouri Auction School in 1981 and has successfully conducted auctions in 32 states, as well as in Canada and Europe. His auction company, B A Rigby & Associates, specializes in marketing upscale Residential, Recreational, Commercial, Ranch and Development properties. Brian has served as Auctioneer, Announcer, or Sale Manager at many of the nation's major Equestrian Events managing a variety of Equine Sales since 1981.
Brian served as Associate Director of Advertising for The Quarter Horse Journal in Amarillo, Texas where he traveled for the Journal and learned from the best Equine Auctioneers and Ringmen in the industry. After his first few sales, working with the Professional Ringmen who represented the Quarter Horse Journal, Brian realized that there was a huge difference between a Ringman and a bidspotter and he quickly recognized the contributions and value of a true Professional. A few of the sales his company has managed include the IBHA World Sales, the American Royal Select Sales, Midway Horse Sales, The UMC Production Sales, and numerous production sales and dispersals. Brian was also on the auction team with Vessels Stallion Farm in Bonsall, California where they set a record that still stands by selling a Race Bred Quarter Horse yearling for a an all time high of $750,000.
At one time during his career, he was selling over 300 auctions per year, and still sells over 150 auctions yearly. Brian recalls a very special day in his auction career when he won his first championship auctioneer title, as well as met his mentor, Leroy Van Dyke the same day. Brian and his family reside only minutes from Springfield, Missouri where they enjoy the rural life in the beautiful Southern Missouri Ozarks.
