MU annual horse auction raises money to support student activities

The MU Equine Teaching Facility at the University of Missouri is known for raising quality horses and their annual horse auction. This year, the 8th Annual MU Online Horse Auction and Fundraiser ran from Oct. 13 to Nov. 13. The auction included seven horses that were cared for and trained by undergraduate students enrolled in the program. The profits from this creative fundraiser go towards student activities throughout the program to ensure more opportunities for students.

A buyer preview day was held on Nov. 8 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to allow potential buyers the opportunity to preview the horses before purchasing. The student trainers were available to work with the horses and answer questions.
