The 9th Annual UF Spring Horse Sale is scheduled for Saturday, April 27, at The University of Findlay’s Western Equestrian Center, 14700 U.S. 68, Findlay. More than 50 horses will be auctioned, including western pleasure, reiners, ranch horses, hunters under saddle and lesson horses.
Graduating seniors will hold a western pleasure class for their two-year-old futurity prospects on Friday, April 26, and then offer these horses at the sale. Breaking and training the horses was part of the senior year curriculum for the western equestrian program.
“It’s a great opportunity for someone to buy a well-broke, well-trained and well-bred horse,” said Farabee McCarthy, Ph.D., director of the University’s animal science program. He also is the instructor for the equine marketing class that is coordinating the sale.
Sale Day will open with horse demonstrations at 10 a.m., followed by the sale at 1 p.m. The average selling price at the 2012 sale was $2,992. KM Exquisitely Best was the top selling horse at $10,000.
