Invitation to Consign Your Horse

November 12, 2020

Thank You for being a past consignor.  We invite you to join the 23rd Annual Cody Horse Sale to be held May 8, 2021, in downtown Cody, Wyoming at the Irma Hotel.    Be a part of this coming year’s top sellers. 

NEW This Year:  All nominations will be screened, judged and determined which consignments are accepted. 

As with any sale, the fat, slick, gentle-broke to ride with great videos and photo’s brought the best money for 2020 horses.

We will once again work to bring together a live auction plus incorporating phone bidding.  We are implementing improvements for the 2021 sale to allow buyers the best opportunity to know specifics about each animal and verify each animal's information.

The best sales no longer rely on just their past reputation but must attract buyers for each horse in the sale through top of the line video’s and professional photos that depict the qualities of each horse. 

An Open Trail Course will be set up west of the arena to show any potential buyers your horses ability to cross logs, bridges and cross water at consignors discretion.

The following is an itinerary for consigned horses in the Cody Horse Sale and website info:

Stalls will be provided for each consigned horse.   **
The preview is a major promotion time for all horses in the sale.  Cattle will be provided for any rope horses, barrels and poles provided as requested.  Accommodations will be made for any other activities.
