For 35 years the Gallop Auction has been a leading place for mare owners to bid on the top stallions in the industry, while knowing their bids were going to a great cause. One hundred percent of the net proceeds from the  Gallop  go the the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Inland Northwest. If you are not familiar with the Ronald McDonald House charity learn more HERE about how they help provide families traveling for their child’s medical care a home away from home so they can stay close by their hospitalized children.

This year’s Gallop Auction is setting up to be a great one. We spoke with Barbara Turner, event manager for Gallop Auction and she shared that “There will be 52 stallion services offered with standing fees ranging from $500 to $4,100 to mare owners” “Many stallions in the lineup are Leading Sires of their registry, multiple World & Reserve World Champions, many producing World & Reserve World Champion”

Amy Gumz, who has donated a breeding to her in demand young stallion,  Its  Its A Southern Thing  explained that “This is such an amazing fundraiser that I actually love donating to.” The charity clearly speaks to the industry and the natural connection between children and horses.

In addition to Moonpie, Lazy Loper, Blazing Hot,, Batt Man, VS Flatline, VS Code Red, The Lopin Machine, Extremely Hot Chips, Hot Ones Only, Hubba Hubba Huntin, Certainly A Vision, Nite Moves, I Got Em Talkin, John Simon and No Doubt Im Lazy and many others including top cutting, halter and reining stallions are offered.
