Jason is always excited to see good horses from the sale go on to be successful with their new owners. Jason was glad to see the quality of horses that were brought by consignors from AZ, SD, OK, MO, ID, WY, NE, TX, UT, and MT. The over-all average sale price on the horses sold was $11,100.00. Despite the high average there were some good buys of really nice horses for under $10,000.00. Thanks to the consignors who brought these quality horses.
This year's lucky buyer was Kristen Petersen. She took home the KO Elite trophy saddle from the raffle drawing at the end of the sale.
