Fall Classic Breeders’ Sale
18 October 2013
The 19th annual CWHBA Fall Classic warmblood horse sale was held Sept 28-29, 2013 in Olds, Alberta. This sale, sponsored by the Alberta Chapter of the Canadian Warmblood Horse Breeders Association, was run with its usual high quality of presentation and organization. Sale Chair Jennette Coote said, “The quality and pedigree of horses offered, and the training and presentation reached by consignors, was the best ever.”
High selling horse at $25,750 was Salbatora, a 3-year-old Canadian Warmblood (CW) gelding bred and consigned by Sandra Erickson, presented by Trish Tweddell. By Sandakan x Rotspon x Londonderry, this 4th generation CW gelding showed excellent gaits and a mature presence in the sale ring that made judge Connie Dorsch comment, “I can’t think of a dressage judge that wouldn’t like that coming into their ring”. Receiving the Victory Tack Shop cooler for high selling performance horse was repeat buyer R.G. Williams from Navan, Ontario, once again proving his good eye for potential stars.
