The Clovis Livestock Auction in New Mexico conducted its annual Winter Horse Sale in November, along with the third annual Clovis-Cactus Cow Horse Futurity.
Eighteen entries competed for a purse of $26,500, a cactus saddle and prizes donated by Cactus Saddlery. The event consisted of three events: dry work reining pattern, cow work and steer stopping. The Clovis-Cactus Team Roping Ruturity for 4 year olds will be added in August.
