HUNDREDS looking to purchase top of the line horses will be bidding in Dalby this weekend at the annual Dalby Australian Stock Horse Sale.

The campdrafting competition will kick off a big weekend of events today with the finals taking place tomorrow where $45,000 is up for grabs.

A selection of mares, geldings and stallions are amongst the 246 ridden horses catalogued for the sale, which begins at 7am on Sunday.

Selling agents Grant Daniel and Long will once conduct the sale and stud stock manager Harvey Weyman-Jones said it was shaping up to be another big year for buyers with about 200 already registered.

"We've got horses coming from Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, and the Northern Territory; basically all over the country," he said.

The Dalby Showgrounds will host the thousands of visitors, with many camping at the site.

For the first time, online bidding will also be allowed.
