For 2020 we expect 90-100 head of the best Tennessee Walking Horse yearlings available. They will be from many different classifications and colors and pedigrees. If you are in the market, we are sure we will have what you’re looking for.

Also for COVID concerns, this sale is an ongoing sale which is currently running and will run through Labor Day, so there are many days to view yearlings in very small groups. Also, information for all of our yearlings will be available online and yearlings can be purchased directly from your favorite chair at home.

Watch for all of our sale updates and daily featured yearlings on our website and on our Facebook page under RisingStar Ranch.
