I'm looking for some good broke ranch horses. Know of any for sale let me know. Must be able to handle a rope and travel in rough country.

Running U livestock just had a horse sale two weeks ago we went to and they had a bunch of nice horses that would fit your bill. Some sold real affordable and some were crazy high. Either way, it doesnt help you much. Sorry. The Richfield salebarn sells horses at the first sale of each month. Last wednesday they sold 15 head of loose horses that came off a dude string from Tropic. I will keep my eyes and ears open.

Thanks leanin h. I was late learning about that sale. I guess I'll see what happens next Saturday in Thermopolis Wy. At the WYO sale. They have some good started 2 yr olds. Just need something I can go to work on. All my good ones have gotten old on me way to fast. Just like my kids.

Welcome to ranchers.net, HO55!! Just curious, where are you located?

If you are looking for young horses, PM JF ranch. He raises some good ones.

I've got a 7 year old for sale. He is a been there done that type of horse. He will buck yet, but is honest about it, and lets you know when he is about to buck. Pull him up, and he will ride off no problems.
The grandkids ride him all over too.

Looks like a nice using horse. I don't mind a honest bucker either. What are you asking?

$3200. He has an awesome handle, but no sliding stop. Just something I never worked on. Kids can ride him, and he won't try anything, but he will try me, and he succeeded in bucking my father in law off, a couple months ago.

Yep, that's Frog. I have taken him about as far as I know how to.
