8th Annual Historic Deadwood Horse Sale

Dan Piroutek

The 8th Annual Historic Deadwood Horse Sale was held on May 1 once again at Seven Down Indoor Arena north of Deadwood, SD, just off Interstate 90. Despite a cold and windy weekend, attendance was high, with buyers coming from 11 different states.

The offering included 63 select horses ranging from riding and ranch horses to started and finished, rodeo horses.

Horses were previewed both Saturday and Sunday, with a wide selection of barrel horses, pole horses, calf roping, heading, heeling and ranch horses. It was a treat to watch these horses show off their stuff during the previews. It made for very entertaining days, which much appreciation towards the training and time it takes to make these horses complete.

This sale continues to bring quality horses and repeat buyers due to the screening process and the good horsemen and women that consign their horses.

The top-selling horse of the day was Lot 18, Drifty Cash, a 12-year-old gelding that was a pro-level calf horse, consigned by Kelly Eggl of Minot, ND. This horse was also a finished barrel horse, and the winning bidder was Kent Clarke, Wessington, SD, with a price of $24,000.

Fetching the second highest price was Lot 28, RK Foxy ID Birdiepep, a superior heading horse consigned by TK and Lainee Sampson of Interior, SD. This gelding sold to Jeff Schaefer of Deslay, ND, for $10,250.
