An exciting horse sale on this fall’s calendar is the Nov. 6 West Coast Ranch Horse Rendezvous Sale at the beautiful Tucalota Creek Ranch. Managed by XIT Western Productions, this sale will bring 35 head of high-quality ranch horses that “are ready to be your next partner.” The sale will specialize in horses that are show-ready or are great ranch horse prospects. There is a consignor application process and a selection committee to ensure only the cream of the crop are offered. The sale will take place alongside a series of events over the 2021 WCRH Rendezvous weekend Nov. 4-7. As for the show, the WCRH Rendezvous will include ranch horse clinics with Sami Hernandez, Cowley Performance Horses and others, a two-day ranch horse show, ranch horse futurities, a silent auction, wine and cheese reception, vendors, and a banquet dinner with live cowboy music from Eric Gorsuch. There will be a saddle awarded to the Top Hand of the weekend, division buckles, trophy knives, trophy stirrups and more! The sale preview will be held with the wine and cheese reception at 5 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 5, and the sale will take place at 4 p.m. on Saturday.


Those interested in consigning to the sale can participate in an application process and can learn more via the WCRH website (westcoastranchhorse.com). All horses will come with vet exams in order to provide the buyers with the confidence that they deserve in buying any of the quality horses offered. Consignors are encouraged to enter their horses in the events in the ranch horse show, especially those that qualify for Friday’s futurity. Consignor check-in and vet checks will take place on Thursday, Nov. 4 starting at 8 a.m. Horses will then begin moving into their stalls, and the horses can be ridden during the open riding that evening from 4-7 p.m. Online bidding will be available through XIT Western Productions website (www.xitwesternproductions.com).
