aCatalogueCover2011The Canadian Warmblood Horse Breeders Association Fall Classic Sale in Olds on October 15-16 saw some great horses go for top dollars. The two-day event includes chute jumping demonstrations and a gala before the auction on Sunday afternoon. New to this year’s sale was “Dancing in the Dirt,” a party in the arena following the gala on Saturday night which was met with great enthusiasm by consigners, bidders, and audience members alike.

This year, 84 quality Warmblood horses were consigned to the sale, with 66 of them being offered on Sunday. Horses ranged from weanlings to seasoned performance horses. And 38 of those horses found new owners with the average sale price being $6,838.16.

Although the average is down from last year, buyers always have money to spend on great horses, despite the economic downturn. A two year old prospect, MJ Salsa bred by MJ Farms in Olds, was sold for $16,500 to a buyer from Kansas City, Missouri. The top selling horse was Cavaluna, a four-year old performance horse bred by John van den Bosch from Red Deer, which sold for $23,000. The total gross sale amount was $259,850.00. 

The sale drew hundreds of people including online and telephone bidders. An amazing 13 horses were sold to buyers outside of Alberta. Buyers from BC, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Nova Scotia and the United States all returned to their hometowns with a new quality Alberta-bred horse to continue showing, breeding, or training.
