With the first horse scheduled to walk through the ring in less than 24 hours, the action at the 2011 Legacy Reining Breeders Sale at Green Valley Ranch in Aubrey, TX was in full swing. On Friday afternoon prospective buyers were mingling among the isles of stalls at Green Valley Ranch as they visited with other reining enthusiasts and looked at horses consigned to the sale. Many made good use of the several video kiosks set up, where they could watch videos and review pedigree pages for each sale horse.
The Legacy Sale features two days of sales this year. The first starts at 1:00 pm on Saturday, October 15, and offers a stellar bred group of 105 yearlings and broodmares from leading breeders such as Tom McCutcheon Reining Horses, Dell Hendricks Reining Horses, McQuay Stables, Troy Heikes Quarter Horses, Bob Loomis Quarter Horses, Steve Simon Reining Horses, Griffin Quarter Horses, Oldenburg Farm, Sterling Ranch, and Xtra Quarter Horses. On Sunday October 16 at 10:00 am, another set of 103 horses will be passing through the ring in the Legacy Consignment Sale. This second day offers a full range of reining horses, from yearlings and broodmares to proven show horses, started prospects and breeding stallions. Horses offered in this sale are also heavy in black type on their pedigree, and represent some of the most successful bloodlines in the reining industry.
In addition to offering quality reining horse stock, another hallmark of the Legacy Sale is the social atmosphere created by the Friday night parties and pre-sale receptions on Saturday and Sunday. These events have become known as social highlights of the year, providing a festive atmosphere for guests and consignors to visit catch up while enjoying live music and a full spread of food. This year, the first reception is slated 4:00-6:00 pm at Tom McCutcheon Reining Horses in Aubrey, Texas. The party will then move across the street to Green Valley Ranch from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. There will also be a lunch at 11:30 on Saturday and a brunch at 10:00 am on Sunday.
