UWRF Colt Sale scheduled for May 2 on Campus Farm

April 15, 2015

If you’re looking for your next performance horse prospect or just a trail-riding companion, consider attending the UW-River Falls 39th Annual Colt Sale on Saturday, May 2, at the UWRF Campus Farm.

For sale are 45 two-year-old prospects and eight aged horses. Each two-year-old in the sale has been trained by a UWRF student enrolled in the principles of training horses course in which students learn and refine training techniques. Most of the aged horses that are part of the sale have been lesson horses in the UWRF equine courses.

The event starts 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, the student trainers will be available to answer questions about the horses. The formal sale will start at 2 p.m.

Additional information about the sale and the horses can be found at www.uwrfcoltsale.com. The website features videos, full performance pedigrees and a description of their riding qualities. For more information, contact Nathan O’Connor at nathan.h.oconnor@uwrf.edu or 715-425-3704.
