They’ll be showcased with a 12-slide drawpot with a $10,000 purse and prize line from Top Hand Ropes, a mainstay of the Clovis portfolio.

Pitzer Ranch, Ericson, Nebraska

The Pitzer Ranch has been hosting sales since 1977 and now offers both a spring and fall sale. The fall sale coincides with the ranch’s HP Ranch Horse Invitational a few days earlier on Sept. 4, the highest-paying ranch horse competition in the country with its 100% payback, $100,000 purse. The sale itself offers legendary bloodlines that go back to famed Pitzer stallion Two Eyed Jack, out of some of the ranch’s 400-plus head of broodmares. Those mares have produced more than $300,000 in Riata Buckle earners in just the last two years, as well as NFR head and heel horses and AQHA champions. Find everything from weanlings to aged ranch and rope horses.

In 2023, the top five yearlings in the fall sale averaged $85,700, led by Calamiity Jane, the 2022 palomino filly by Playgun out of the High Brow Cat mare Catilax, who sold for $122,500.

Will Rogers Memorial Center, Fort Worth, Texas
817-594-9210

Western Bloodstock’s NRCHA Snaffle Bit Futurity Sale coincides with the American Rope Horse Futurity Association’s World Championship, and while the sale primarily markets to the cow horse industry, team ropers have indeed bought some great ones out of the sale, too. Stallion Reys Of Pep, Jake Cooper’s ARHFA Head Horse of the Year ridden by Kaleb Driggers and Colby Lovell, is a Western Bloodstock graduate. In 2023, rope horse breeders Southern Ranches consigned Black Magic Woman, a Shining Spark daughter out of Carrera Cat, by Metallic Cat, and the horse brought a massive $180,000—the highest-selling yearling in NRCHA Sale history. The overall average for the 2023 sale was $32,855.

DECEMBER

Will Rogers Memorial Center, Fort Worth, Texas
817-594-9210

This sale’s so epic, it needs six days of action to get the job done. A staple of the NCHA Futurity, this Western Bloodstock Sale is a place for cutters to find their next futurity champ—but along the way, plenty of these horses end up in the roping pen. In 2023, the sale realized an overall average of $57,767, while the sale of 83 horses for $100,000 or more smashed the 2022 NCHA Futurity Sales record of 66. Bloodlines like those of Stevie Rey Von, Metallic Cat, Dual Rey and Hashtags have been standouts in the roping pen, and this is one of the places to find the very best of that variety.

South Point Equestrian Center, Las Vegas

Horses must have at least 90 days riding before the sale, and they’ll preview Saturday afternoon, Dec. 7.
