The first Horse Sale was held in August, 1971 and was labeled the Diamond F Ranch and Walter Ed Jones Production Sale. Fred H. Snook and Ed Jones were longtime friends who loved to raise and race their horses. Their wives, Elizabeth H. Snook and Libby Jones were best of friends. Fred Snook Jr. just graduated and returning home from the University of Idaho Law School was the Sale Manager. There has been a Sale ever since. The Sale moved to the present location at the Lemhi County Fairgrounds when the Indoor Arena building was moved from Leadore to the Fairgrounds. As the Sale grew, many other activities were added. As the buyers have become more concerned over performance and less concerned with pedigree, performance events have been added to give the sellers a chance to show off their horses before the Sale. First there is the Open Performance Show Saturday morning in the outdoor arena. All Sale horses are eligible to be ridden in the arena. Second, is the Trail Horse Competition. Held Saturday morning in the 4-H arena, the horses perform a variety of tasks and are judged. Third, is the Ranch Horse Competition. This will be held Friday morning at 11:00 a,m, in the outdoor arena. The horses all perform a set pattern then perform cow work. The crowd truly enjoys seeing all these good horses perform. It is quite a show!
The Salmon Select Horse Sale is more than just a sale, IT IS AN EVENT! More than the calendar, it is the signal to the folks in Salmon, Idaho that Winter is over and Spring has again arrived!
DOLLARDollar was bred on the Fort Ranch, but paper work was never kept up. 15 hands tall, weighs 1200 pounds and built to last! Flashy and gentle! Finished head and heel horse. Great to use on the ranch or at the ranch rodeo. Don’t let this one pass by, great all around horse!
