Since 1884, the Haythorn Land & Cattle Co. brand has stood for quality. Harry Haythornthwaite and his descendants have been recognized with the AQHA Legacy Award for raising top working registered American Quarter Horses at the Arthur, Nebraska, ranch for more than 70 years. In 1992, the ranch was awarded the prestigious AQHA Best Remuda, the first ranch ever recognized with the award. August 30-31, the historic Haythorn Land & Livestock Co. is conducting its last public auction to be held at the ranch.
Implemented in 2006, the Southwest Reining Horse Association's Online Stallion Service Auction is one of the most successful in the reining industry and has helped the SWRHA Futurity to become and remain one of the National Reining Horse Association's top five money-added futurities. The 2013 auction began Jan. 15 and concludes on Feb. 28 at 8 pm.
