THANK YOU!


A big thank you to all the consignors, buyers, spectators, vendors and friends that made The Great American Trail Horse Sale of 2014 a success! We had a wonderful selection of horses that had great conformation, disposition and training! There were trail horses for all budgets and riding levels.

This was the year of color; 20 Paints, 16 Palominos, 9 Duns, 6 Buckskins, 6 Grays, and 6 Roans, blue, bay and strawberry. We had consignors from 12 states and buyers from as far as New Mexico and Hawaii! The weather cooperated nicely and was comfortable all weekend.

For those of you who were unable to attend, I hope you will mark your calendar early for the first weekend in April......hope to see you here at The Great American Trail Horse Sale next year!!
