This annual horse sale is arranged by Findlay’s equine marketing class and features approximately 40 horses.
Disciplines of the sale horses include, but are not limited to: western pleasure, all-around, reining, hunter under saddle, western riding, trail, ranch riding, and quiet lesson or 4-H horses.
Some of the horses that will be offered in the 17th annual sale are sired by distinguished horses such as One Hot Krymsun, Kissin the Girls, RL Best of Sudden, Gunners Special Nite, A Dream Remembered, and Hot Ones Only.
Throughout the fall and spring semesters, Findlay equestrian students spend numerous hours caring for and training all of the horses included in the sale.
