This premier sale features top quality ranch, rope, and performance horses, both finished and started prospects. Each sale horse will first go through a sifting process that evaluates the horses for quality, temperament, and soundness. They will then be previewed in dry, trail, and cattle work. The Winnemucca Horse Sale has become well known for the quality horses and efficient crew year after year.
