Legends of Ranching
It is with a heavy heart we had to cancel all of our events surrounding the 2020 Legends of Ranching Performance Horse Sale. The safety of our communities, families and friends are of the upmost importance. However, our heart goes out to our consigners, sponsors, faculty, staff and especially our students, for the time and passion that has been put into this year’s group of outstanding horses. Thank you LOR community.
Thank you to all of our generous Sponsors!
2020 Legends of Ranching Performance Horse Sale
We are entering our 15th year of the Legends of Ranching Performance Horse Sale and have some exciting new changes taking place.
As always, we have an outstanding group of 2 and 3 year-old horses provided to us by over twenty ranches across the United States. These young horses are assigned to students in our Horse Training and Sale Preparation class, who will work with them throughout the academic year to prepare them for our sale. We are also lucky to receive high quality aged horse consignments who nicely round out our set of sale horses presented to the public in April.
For the fourth year we are also happy to offer the Legends of Ranching Futurity and Maturity Show, open to those horses bought and sold through the Legends of Ranching Sale. We encourage you to browse through the general information for this exciting event!
Similar to years past, our main goal with this program is to provide excellent hands-on experiences to our students, allowing them the opportunity to take part in a top notch equine industry event. Of course we could not do it without the generous and unwavering support of our consignors and sponsors!
