Receiving the high-selling 2-Year-Old Prospect cooler, sponsored by Key Warmbloods, was Diamond in the Sky (Diamond Stud x MJ Fusion), consigned and bred by Shirley England and purchased for $11,250 ($8,654 US) by Annespohie Canut of Foothills, Alberta.

A first for the Fall Classic Sale was the charity auction of a Rebecca Shuttleworth pencil sketch entitled “Frontier Freedom”. This lovely piece sold for $4,200 to Dave Jamieson with all proceeds going to the Canadian Cancer Society in the name of Tracey Ricard, a valued CWHBA member who passed away in the summer of 2019.
This year’s silver anniversary event was sponsored by many generous businesses and individuals with our sale title sponsor, Elite Three Inc., topping the long list of supporters. The hardworking volunteers of the CWHBA Alberta Chapter put in many hours to make this a sale to remember, and the consignors, once again, showed their expertise in breeding and raising truly superior horses for sport. We wish the buyers good luck with their new purchases and welcome your stories of successes in the coming months and years.
