Tunnel Vision Design is very happy to announce we are being recognized as of the top designers of horse/equine auction websites in the world. We have a number of very successful projects under our belt, and we have the expertise necessary to make your website one of the best in the industry. Each site we create is individually customized both look and feel and uniquely tailored to the needs of the specific organization. We are proud that all of our auction sites have found great success in a competitive and rapidly growing industry!
Horse sales grew in number by 23% in 2021 and the average sale price is up 56%. If you’ve bought or sold horses recently then you know how fast the market is growing. We expect 2022 to be even bigger than 2021 as there are zero signs of slowdown. An equine that would have sold on Facebook or locally for $2,000 a few years ago can easily reach $20,000 or more in an online auction now.
You’ll find our proposals are very competitively priced compared to selling your horses on large, general auction sites where your horses fight for space with everyone else’s. Some of our clients have gone from $0 in auction sales to multi-millions in a year after launch. They would never have achieved that success selling on someone else’s website.
Our Successful Horse Auction Clients
Our Auction Software
We use an industry leading auction software that we believe is the best on the market. Easy to use for both site owners and bidders, the positive responses to our sites have been overwhelming. With each site we design and create, we walk the clients through the features and setup of their sites until they are comfortable running the show on their own. We’ll always be available for questions or issues in the future.
Many of our competitors leave their clients on their own after they build a site: “goodbye and good luck” is a common launch phrase in the industry! Not with a Tunnel Vision Design site as we are looking for partners in success. There’s a reason all of our auction clients are still with us months and years after launching their sites, and it’s because we stand behind every site we make and dedicate ourselves to every site being a huge success. Ask us about our worry-free hosting packages where we handle the backups, maintenance, and upgrades so you don’t have to.
Some of the features our software offers:
- Proxy Bidding
- Relist – Automatic & Manual
- Variable Increment
- Silent Bidding
- Credit Card payments
- Buyer’s Premium
Your Information is Safe with Us
A very common question we get is: since you all have so many great websites, can we trust you not to share our business’s proprietary information with other sites in our industry? YES, you can always trust us! We pledge to never share details about your business with anyone else. We believe in a free market where each business succeeds on its own merits. We are not creating competitors; we are creating industry leaders.
Don’t bother asking us how our other sites go to be so successful, but there is one thing all of those successful sites have in common: Tunnel Vision Design–we can help you blaze your own trail of success today. We’ve heard our competitors will not make that same guarantee, so don’t risk having to fight an uphill battle from the beginning where your unique ideas and data may not be safe.

From time to time, we are going to spotlight an area of the country with great local businesses that value quality web design. We wanted to start off with our home base of Lexington, KY before we continue to other locations in Kentucky and elsewhere in the United States.

If you are looking for Kentucky web designers, you’ve found the best.
Kentucky Horse Auctions
One of the things Kentucky is known for is its horse industry. Tunnel Vision Design is the leading web design firm for horse auction websites and have launched multiple auction sites over the years. One of our very successful clients, Platinum Equine Auction is seeing tremendous growth after we released their new website in 2020. Whether your Kentucky business is interested in an auction-based website or is equine focused, TVD has years of experience to deliver you the solution you need.
Local Meals + Catering – Come To The Table
Just outside of Lexington based in Harrodsburg is one of our newer clients Come To the Table. We are happy to announce the launch of their new website which we are very proud of. Emily asked us for an attractive, eye-catching design where people could order and pay online for a rotating menu of meals and as they say the proof is in the pudding. It’s always great to work with a local business that is also focused on serving local customers.
We partner with numerous local businesses to provide you the support and customer knowledge that your business needs. Whenever we can use the services of a local business or hire local talent we prefer to support local entrepreneurs too. Kentucky has a lot to offer from horses to bourbon to world-class athletics and we are proud to call Lexington, KY our home base. Outsiders don’t always understand what makes Kentucky Kentucky. It’s important for a lot of small businesses to have local roots and know that when they pick up the phone or send an email it’s not going eight time zones and an ocean away.
Just as important as knowing when to support local is knowing when it’s best to go national or international. When it comes to big ticket items like hosting and security we prefer the biggest and best names possible for your website. For infrastructure services such as data centers, cloud storage, distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) mitigation, content delivery, and domain services we will always choose the best company for the job.
Tunnel Vision Design — Local Roots, World-Class Business
You’ve likely heard the phrase, “less is more.” Truer words couldn’t be said when it comes to web design. As we’ve mentioned before, 94% of users base their first impressions of a website on its design. Visual appeal is not always a barrage of various colors and items as it tends to get overwhelming, affecting the way users perceive the digital product. Sometimes, a touch of minimalism goes a long way in web design.

Our team understands what attracts visitors and converts them into loyal customers. We utilize our expertise to tailor a unique experience for your users, increasing traction to your business.
In our previous client spotlight, we highlighted our work with JMS Wind Energy and what we emphasized on their web design. This time around, the client left us a generous 5-star review on Clutch, a B2B ratings and review platform.

Nick Gerhard, President of JMS Wind Energy, talked about their company’s collaboration with Tunnel Vision Design LLC in perfect detail. He explained the problems they encountered with their original website and how this revamp remarkably bolstered their digital visibility.
“Our previous website was poorly made, so we wanted someone to develop a new one for us. Tunnel Vision Design designed and developed a new website for us.
They did a phenomenal job on our website, which was eye-catching yet professional, and we were really proud of it. It had a good flow and represented us well.”
