All of our Horses
For over a decade we consigned gentle, ranch, trail and arena prospect horses trained using Bill's method to select quality horse sales throughout the region and offered private treaty sales as well. Seeing a need for horse owners learn, our focus has moved to clinics and horsemanship training. However, we often have AQHA registered Ranch, Arena and Barrel Horse prospects in training.
All of our horses are hand selected using disposition, color, confirmation and pedigree so we can offer the best horses possible to our clients.
To learn more about ranch, trail or performance prospects available, please call us.

2016 AQHA Grey Gelding DJ DAKOTA QUINCY
Quincy is a big boned, deep cinching young gelding that is as safe and gentle as you can make a young horse. He has that want to please attitude & disposition that makes him love people and people love him. He sold in May 2020 at the online Cody Horse Sale. His new home is on the Northfork of the Shoshone River just outside of Cody, Wyoming.
Hope you are well. Sorry took me so long to reach out to you. Was so hectic getting horses in and settled in. Just wanted to tell you I absolutely love Quincy. I had Mike ride him while I rode Mikes own horse the first ride and then my kids rode Quincy ( all fighting over him as they liked him so much) then I got on him and rode him three days in a row and told everyone that he is my horse. He is honest and gentle and brave. We took him up / down hills over rivers and was just so good. We did some riding in the small paddock did ground poles etc. I cannot thank you enough for putting him out for sale. I feel so blessed. I got over my anxiety of riding a young horse and just love him. He is fantastic!!

2012 Blue Roan Gelding BIG JOHN
A "True Blue" Wyoming mountain and trail horse. "BIG JOHN" - 16.1, 1400#'s - There's no mountain too high and no river too wide for this horse. He's just as quiet and gentle as he is big and strong. "BIG JOHN" was ridden and packed all over the back country of Colorado and Wyoming at Elk Camp and on summer pack trips. He was used extensively to gather cattle in very rough country and is sure footed and safe as they come. "BIG JOHN" was well broke and gentle and will fit most levels of riders. He's the kind of horse that stays gentle and broke with extended periods of time off. Good horses that are big, safe, gentle, and 100% sound with lots of shape, color and personality like "BIG JOHN" don't come around everyday.
Purchased in 2017 at the Cody Horse Sale.

2013 APHA Mare BOOTY UP SCARLET

"It was a big scary step buying a horse without actually laying eyes and hands on it. I have to commend Bill Oliver for his honesty in representing the horse it is everything he told me it was. He was very forthcoming with each and every detail down to the blemish on its front leg. He is a genuine horseman when it comes to turning out quality individuals; if all your consignors have his skill and integrity you have by far the best sale in the west . I am so enjoying my new mount whether riding or just working around it . It is the sweetest natured animal I have ever owned. "
