Good food, beautiful Arizona weather on Friday, shopping, and great horses to watch and bid on made this year's performance horse sale a success. Hershberger Performance Horses would like to thank all that attended. We are grateful to all of our buyers that trust in the quality brought to the Hershberger Performance Horse Sale. This year's lucky buyer was Steve Casterton of Queen Creek, AZ. He took home the DHS trophy saddle from the raffle drawing at the end of the sale. We are excited to see the Casterton boys competing on a nice calf horse that was purchased at the sale and will be performing in the Jr. High and High School Rodeos.
