Team rope preview on Friday held simultaneously with the Proven Session Preview. All Proven horses welcome, Regular catalog horses may show for $50 cattle fee. 

PROVEN CATALOG SESSION: All riding horses that complete the five maneuver test posted below on Friday 4/8. Horses are scored, it is not a competition but a sure way to prove your horse(s) to the buyers. These horses will receive professional advertisement. Proven horses will begin at lot 5 of the sale, followed by more regular catalog horses.

REGULAR CATALOG SESSION: Same as our previous catalog sales. These horses will receive professional advertisement. Regular catalog session for all riding horses, broodmares, colts, etc that do not preview in the proven session. The regular catalog horses are invited to the preview on Friday to ride around while Proven Tests are running - and may show in the team rope preview for the $50 cattle fee. 

 

OPEN SALE: Same as our previous sales. Open sale is for any and all horses. No professional advertisement. Consignments for open sale accepted until sale day. 

Preview session for proven catalog horses at an arena just 4 miles from the sale barn. Horses will have their hip numbers painted on and show in a 4-5 minute test. The test will be scored by two judges and results will be posted back the sale at Parsons Livestock Auction barn. Awards for high scoring horses when they are sold. Again, not a competition, but a way for buyers to watch you prove your horse. 

Proven Session will be LIVE STREAMED and the recording will be posted online. Link to be posted soon. Horses will show in close to sale order -- lots #5-15, then 16-25, in as close to number order as possible. Many consignors have multiple horses, so we want to give them enough time in between rides.

 

PROVEN SESSION TEST: 

Horse must be shown in a bitted bridle. No tie downs, war bridles, hackamores, etc. 

English yearlings will be used - not ex ropers

Test:  1) Enter at a working walk

          5) Neck rope the yearling at your discretion (2 loop limit)

          Stop the yearling, turn him and tow a few feet, drop your rope

          *After you let your steer go, you may use remaining time to show your                 horse if desired. No points added to score, but you have the audience's              attention until 5 minute time limit.
