News & Events



April 22, 2017 for the 12th Annual Legends of Ranching Performance Horse Sale.

We are entering our 12th 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 second 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!

Check out Silver Spur Ranches consignment to the 2015 Invitational Ranch Horse Show and Sale at the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo.  “Casino” is truly the best bred horse we have ever brought to this sale.  He is by $2 Million Dollar Sire, Sweet Lil Pepto, and is out of a daughter of High Brow Cat, Wholly Cats, who won $173,846 herself.  Casino has won money in RHAA competition, been used in several WRCA ranch rodeos and has been used extensively on the ranch though three spring wagon works and fall roundups.  Truly anyone can ride this horse, and he has been used by 10-year-old Cooper McClesky at youth rodeos and several team ropings.







Huge congratulations to Kyle Trahern and Metallic Masterpiece on their 222.5 in the fence work today.  We couldn’t be prouder!
