David Hammond Auctions will present the 15th Annual Expo Horse Sale at the nation’s ultimate equine exposition, the Western States Horse Expo, on Sunday, June 15. The Western States Horse Expo takes place Friday through Sunday, June 13-15, at the Cal Expo Fairgrounds, 1600 Exposition Blvd., Sacramento 95815. Throughout the weekend, 40,000 horsemen will come together and immerse themselves in everything imaginable for the horse enthusiast.

“We are expecting over 100 horses to be entered into the Horse Sale this year, which will consist of well broke riding horses in English or Western,” said David Hammond, Horse Sale promoter. “Since 1985, we have worked hard to offer something for everyone, from show horses to gentle trail riding veterans.”

These consignment sale horses will range from trail, ranch, cutting, to cow rope and reining. A select group of ranch and cow horse bred yearlings and broodmares are expected, along with ponies and draft horses. Early entries this year include a five-year-old Sorrel gelding, courtesy of Bob Adolf of Grass Valley, four ranch and rope geldings courtesy of KD Performance Horses, Ballard Utah, and more.

Starting Friday, June 13, potential buyers will have the opportunity to view the sale horses and talk in person to the owners at the Horse Sale Barn. On Horse Sale day, Sunday, June 15, the formal preview/demos will be 9:00 a.m., with cattle available for use during the demos. The Horse Sale will start at 12 noon.

On May 15, the sale horses will be available to view online, including videos when available, photos and pedigrees at www.DHAuctions.com. For questions about the sale call 916-801-9465.
