Montana continues one of its long-standing traditions this weekend by debuting some of the finest bucking stock on the market. This auction has taken place every third weekend in May for 63 years. One of Eastern Montana’s biggest events draws cowboys and bronc-busters from all around to bid on the best bucking horses Montana has to offer.
Ranch life in Montana is slowly diminishing and giving way to a more urban, contemporary cowboy culture. But events like this bring us back to the roots of the real Montana.

Besides auctioning, the weekend also features a parade and rodeo with top contenders. Truly one of Montana’s greatest annual events celebrating a culture we cherish.
