WOODBINE SADDLE CLUB
2021 SPRING HORSE AND TACK SALE
The spring sale went very well despite having only a small number of horses. The high dollar horse was a 12 year old buckskin quarter horse gelding that was led into the ring, no saddle or rider on board, and brought $2,700.00. The second highest dollar horse was a 20 year old paint pony that brought $1,100.00. We have buyers looking for horses and willing to pay good money for them so we encourage you to bring your horses to our sale.
The horse and tack sale has been a mainstay fundraiser for the Woodbine Saddle Club since 1999. We appreciate everyone's support through the years. We want to be able to continue to serve the equine community with this service.
We also want to thank Travis Melby and Bill Pryor for their auctioneering skills at this sale.
