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 4:00pm 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. There is plenty of space around the outdoor arena for buyers to park their vehicles at the fence to watch.

Sale day is Saturday, August 10th. 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 8/9. Horses are scored, it is not a competition but a sure way to prove your horse(s) to the buyers. Proven horses will sell at the start of the catalog 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. 

 

PROVEN SESSION TEST: 

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

Test: 

1) Enter at a working walk

Halt in front of judges, back four steps

Dismount, pick up all four feet

2) Drop your bridle, rebridle the horse, remount

3) Trot a figure 8

Lope a figure 8 (simple or flying lead change)

4) Ride to gate, open and close gate

5) Sidepass between two poles, pick rope up off fence, drag log 15 feet forwards, turn around and back your horse pulling the log backwards 15 feet

and put rope back on fence.

*If you complete the five maneuvers in less than five minutes, you may use remaining time to show your horse at will. This will not add to your score but you will have the audience's attention to show your horse.

Exit the arena 

Five maneuvers being judged by two judges - each judge allowed 50 points per horse (10 points per maneuver) 

Experienced horsemen judging the horse not the rider - multiple horses may be shown by the same rider. Often riders available for hire - contact management if needed.
