Sale Info:

Our sales in Parsons, KS feature a unique Proven Session Preview on Friday before the sale for all horses entered in the Proven catalog session. The Proven Session test is listed below. Tests start at 10:00am and a new horse will enter the arena every 5 minutes. Team roping and pen roping to follow once tests are completed. We encourage buyers to come Friday to watch these horses perform in the arena and meet their owners face to face. There is plenty of space around the outdoor arena for buyers to park their at the fence to watch. 

Sale day is Saturday, April 15th. Tack sale at 9:00am followed by horses at 11:30am. All CONSIGNOR & BUYER INFO is listed towards the bottom of this page. Please use the contact numbers below to call with questions. 

PROVEN CATALOG SESSION: All riding horses that complete the five maneuver test posted below on Friday 4/14. Horses are scored, it is not a competition but a sure way to prove your horse(s) to the buyers. Proven horses will begin at lot 5 of the sale, followed by more regular catalog horses.

At the close of the Proven Session, arena will be wide open to all consigned horses to rope good cattle both out of the box and out in the arena - giving sellers more opportunity to show their rope/ranch horses.

REGULAR CATALOG SESSION: 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 & pen rope preview for the $50 cattle fee. 


OPEN SALE: Open sale is for any and all horses. Consignments for open sale accepted until 2:00pm sale day. 



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