37th Annual Colt Sale is May 4 at UW-River Falls

April 23, 2013 ---Attention horse enthusiasts! If you are looking for your next performance horse prospect or just a companion, the 2013 University of Wisconsin-River Falls (UWRF) Colt Sale is the place to be. The sale will be held on Saturday, May 4, at the UWRF Campus Farm located off Wasson Lane.   

The event will start 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 students will be available to answer questions about the horses. The auction will start at 2 p.m.    

Each two-year-old horse featured in the sale has been trained by a UWRF student enrolled in the "Principles of Training Horses" class where students learn and refine their training techniques. Along with the two-year-olds, about 10 aged horses will be sold. Most of these aged horses are lesson horses from the UWRF riding program. Additional information about the sale and the horses can be found at www.uwrfcoltsale.com.  

The website features video clips of each horse being ridden, a full performance pedigree, and a description of their riding qualities.   For more information, email nathan.h.oconnor@uwrf.edu or call the Animal Science Department at 715-425-3704.
