Binion Bucking Horse & Bull Sale adds to its prestige
Benny Binion’s Bucking Horse & Bull Sale is already one of the premier events during the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas each December, and it’s making some changes to lift its profile even more.
The sale will happen over two days, Dec. 4 and 6, at the South Point Hotel, Casino and Spa, which includes a special sale set for Dec. 4 at 9 a.m. which will feature 2- and 3-year-old colts and yearlings and 2-year-old bulls.
“To be realistic, we were a good bucking horse and bull sale, but we weren’t where we wanted to be,” said Hal Burns, a PRCA director and member of the association’s stock contractor executive council. “We wanted to turn it into an elite sale. We wanted to see if we could sell the top stock in the country.”
