Annual colt sale to take place at UW-River Falls campus farm

Published April 25th, 2013

UW-River Falls is holding a colt sale on Saturday, May 4, at the UWRF Campus Farm located off Wasson Lane.

The event will start at 11 a.m. with a sale preview where all of the horses will be ridden for potential buyers.

Following the preview, lunch will be served. During lunch students will be available to answer questions about the horses. The auction will start at 2 p.m.

Each 2-year-old horse featured in the sale has been trained by a UWRF student enrolled in the “Principles of Training Horses” class where students learn and refine their training techniques. Along with the 2-year-olds, about 10 aged horses will be sold.

Most of these aged horses are lesson horses from the UWRF riding program.
Additional information about the sale and the horses can be found at www.uwrfcoltsale.com.  The website features video clips of each horse being ridden, a full performance pedigree, and a description of their riding qualities.
