Schedule of Events

We have seen another year fly by and times seems to move faster and faster here at the Shelman Ranch. I’m sure it’s much the same for all of you.

We are grateful for the moisture we have been fortunate to receive the last few months and look forward to a produc-tive growing season this year.

We know that all of you face some of the same challenges in life, with how you spend your time and money. It’s our goal to offer you the opportunity to come to one place to purchase horses and make it a wise use of your time and resources.

We feel that we have a deep line up of the right kind of horses and that you won’t go anywhere in the west and find a better group of broke horses offered for sale at auction. We intend to show and preview the horses offered here to sort the good, better and best horses and allow the buyers to make an educated decision on the their purchases.

We also want to make note of the well broke and royally bred broodmare quality, mares in the sale this year.

Thank you to all of our consignors, buyers, staff, vendors, family and friends. This event would not be possible without all of you!!

Thank you,

Cory Shelman
