The Horse Sale At Rancho Rio presented by Tito’s

March 15 @ 8:00 am - March 16 @ 5:00 pm


Join us for the 10th Annual The Horse Sale at Rancho Rio presented by Tito’s Handmade Vodka. The Premier Rope Horse Sale in the World approximately 65 consignments sell at this spectacular, one-of-a-kind, once-a-year event. A Yost Events, Inc. production in The Team Roping Capital of the World, Wickenburg, Arizona.

Since it’s inception, The Horse Sale at Rancho Rio has become the leading invitational rope horse sale in the country and the premier horse sale of the Team Roping Capital of the World. Held each year in Wickenburg, Arizona, in conjunction with the National Team Roping Finals, The Horse Sale at Rancho Rio is limited to 65 top rope horses and draws consignors and buyers from all over the U.S. and Canada.

Renowned auctioneer Steve Friskup, who takes the auction block each year under the big top tent at Rancho Rio, equates going to The Horse Sale in Wickenburg to going to a Barrett-Jackson Auto Auction.

“If you’re a primo car buyer, you go to a Barrett-Jackson auction,” Friskup said in an interview with The Team Roping Journal. “It’s the same way with ropers. You can expect to take in an overload of your favorite sport.”

In 2021, the seventh edition of The Horse Sale at Rancho Rio moved more than $2.5 million in rope horses and has surpassed the million-dollar mark in total sales since 2019. Some of the top names in the rodeo and the performance horse industry have come through the sale ring including Trevor Brazile, Patrick Smith, Brad Lund, Bobby Lewis, Turner Performance Horses, Wilson Cattle Company and many more.

Most consignors have their horses in Arizona for buyers to watch at jackpots well in advance of the sale and we encourage buyers to take advantage. Reach out, do your research, and go try any horses that you might be interested in.

The 2024 Horse Sale at Rancho Rio presented by Tito’s Handmade Vodka will offer a full team roping preview on Friday, March 15, with the auction slated to take place on Saturday, March 16. Follow Rancho Rio on Facebook for updates.
