"Performance Sales International" (P.S.I.) is considered the "Seal of quality" among horse experts, and customers from all over the world can benefit from their quality standards!" This statement becomes ever clearer as the world of horse breeding and horse sports, in particularly PSI becomes even smaller. Over the last few years we have witnessed more top quality horses from PSI landing in Australia, be it for breeding or sport. More recently, PSI have also become involved in the competition arena, sponsoring the PSI Dressage and Jumping with the Stars events, held at annually at Werribee Park. At these amazing events we get to sit in on Masterclasses with the renowned Dr Ulf Moeller himself (Pic: Berni Saunders) and catch a glimpse of his highly successful training techniques while also seeing some horses that began their careers at the now infamous PSI stables.

Quality assurance plays a vital role in the success of PSI, and so all PSI auction horses are checked by both Paul Schockemöhle and Ullrich Kasselmann personally.
The auction horses are either homebred, raised at home elsewhere or are carefully selected. All horses are in training at PSI for the auction and of an utmost quality and standard.
