ALL catalog horses receive professional advertisement prior to sale and will be featured in the online catalog, and receive a bedded stall at the sale barn. Link to online catalog will be posted soon.

PROVEN CATALOG SESSION: All riding horses that complete the five maneuver test posted below. Horses are scored, it is not a competition but a sure way to prove your horse(s) to the buyers. Preview for these proven horses will begin at 9:00am at the Parsons State Hospital and Training Center Arena - just 4 miles from Parsons Livestock Auction. These horses will receive professional advertisement. Proven horses will begin at lot 10 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 can be previewed by buyers at the Parsons Livestock Auction barn. 


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 announced during the sale at Parsons Livestock Auction as each horse enters the sale ring. Awards for high scoring horses when they are sold. Again, not a competition, but a way for buyers to watch you prove your horse.



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

English yearlings will be used - not ex ropers
