Gold Buckle Select Horse Sale

NILE Horse Sales

1 of 4

The NILE Gold Buckle Select Horse Sales are conducted and managed by a committee whose members have a variety of experience in the equine industry. The mission is to hold sales where breeders, trainers, and exhibitors can market high-quality horses to buyers from all over the United States and Canada. A few have even been sold to foreign countries. The sale horses have been selected by the committee and screened by a DVM prior to the sale. Every effort is made to sell only the top quality horses out of those consigned.

For questions or more information, please call (406) 256-2497 or email bonnie@thenile.org.

Check out the NILE Gold Buckle Select Horse Sale Facebook page to see horses entered in the sale.
