Copper Spring Ranch Hosts 

MSU Horse Sale

 

April 2010 Issue

 

     The Top of the West Performance Horse Sale and Derby Day Celebration will be held May 1, 2010, in the indoor arena at the Copper Spring Ranch (CSR) west of Bozeman , MT. The event is sponsored by the Equine Boosters of Montana State University , and is a major fundraiser for MSU’s Equine Science curriculum.

     The sale will feature 50 head of performance horses, and will showcase 15 horses that MSU students started in the Colt Breaking and Training class. Horses have been donated to the program by breeders in the region.

     The sale will be webcast through the copperspringranch.com website as a way to bring the auction block to buyers’ homes. The sale is managed by Headwaters Livestock in Three Forks, MT.

     Bob Hanson, Chairman of the Equine Boosters, and beef and quarter horse producer from White Sulphur Springs , MT , said, “We are recruiting well-bred consignment horses with the pedigrees to excel in barrel racing, reining and cutting.”

     The event will include a trade show, a fun-filled social, and a Derby Day celebration, which features a live viewing of the Kentucky Derby on a large screen monitor. The sale begins after the completion of the Kentucky Derby.

     In past years, the sale was held at the Bob Miller Pavilion on the MSU campus. This year, to help the students, Copper Spring Ranch has volunteered the use of their facility.

     CSR General Manager Gary Metcalf said, “Supporting the Equine Boosters of MSU goes along with our philosophy of supporting educational equine projects in Montana as a way to expand this state’s horse industry.”

     For more information about consigning horses, call sale manager, Wendy Briggs, at 406-565-2681; or Jack McGuinness at 406-285-0502. For information about vendor space, schedule of events, or directions, visit equineboostersofmsu.com.
