In the Rocky Mountains region, Colorado State University’s Legends of Ranching Performance Horse Sale is a prime venue to pick up young, talented ranch horses trained by CSU students.
In 2016, the program introduced the Legends of Ranching Futurity and Maturity Horse show, which invites past sale horses to compete for more than $10,000, scholarships, prizes and more.
This year, colorful Paint Horse program alumni also have the opportunity to vie for APHA-sponsored trophy belt buckles, awarded to the highest-placing Paint Horse in the Legends of Ranching Maturity Horse Show. The show includes ranch riding and working cow horse classes, with both non-pro and open divisions available. Learn more here.
“The Colorado State University Legends of Ranching program is proud to have APHA involved in helping our students and this event,” Legends of Ranching Director and APHA Judge David Denniston said. “We appreciate the support of the APHA and look forward to including many more Paint Horses in the LOR Program in years to come.”
