Van Norman and Friends

  Buyers at this year's Van Norman and Friends Production Sale will have an opportunity to bid on more than 100 horses from Van Norman Ranch, Rhoads Ranch, Deadwood Quarter Horses, Porath Quarter Horses, Dennis and Mary Journigan, John and Chris Tueller, Cory and Casey Shelman, and Matt Mori. 

  The weekend will kick off Friday with the Van Norman Stockhorse Challenge, followed by a preview of consigned, broke horses. The sale will be held on Saturday, starting at 11 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time. Bidders who can’t be at the sale in person can watch the sale during a live, on-line broadcast at, and may bid on-line or over the phone. 

  Participants in the Van Norman Sale follow the vaquero tradition of horse training, and 2-, 3-, and 4-year-olds will have been ridden in the snaffle bit.  Older horses will be either in the hackamore, two-rein or bridle, and have been used on the ranch in all aspects of ranch work. Weanlings and yearlings will be broke to lead and load.
