The Ranchers Quarter Horse Breeders Association was first organized in the spring of 2000 when a group of South Dakota quarter horse breeders met to formulate a plan to market their foals, and has evolved into a highly recognized Performance and Prospect Sale & Futurity, featuring the top offerings from 15 member ranches.  Ranches must apply for membership and participate as a Guest Consignor for at least one year, before being selected for membership by the RQHBA to assure that their program meets our high standards.

Organization Goals & Membership

The goal of the RQHBA is to conduct a Select Sale to showcase the Breeders’ top weanlings, yearlings, started and finished performance horses. Each ranch may not sell more than 50% of the current year’s foal production. The purpose of this rule is to maintain a high quality sale without having a total production sale for any one member.

Sale Requirements
All horses sold at the RQHBA are inspected for quality. The sale horses are vet checked by a veterinarian when they are Coggins tested. They are then inspected by a Screening Committee and Sale Veterinarian on sale day.  All foals and yearlings are halter broke and gentle for the sale.  The foals are presented in the Showcase so buyers can compare their prospective purchases side by side.

Quality of Horses
As a group we strive to breed horses that are sound and structurally correct. We are confident the quality of our horses will meet your highest expectations. This is a sale where you can find a truly versatile horse suited for the arena, the show ring, trail riding or ranch work. All of the ranches have more horses at home like those offered here so if you see something you like, please contact that ranch. Ranch visits are always welcome!
