For the second year in a row the CWHBA Fall Classic Breeder's Sale will be held online. Due in part to the success of the previous sale and a strong result at the Spring Riding Horse Sale, which was also held on line, a tremendous lineup of Canadian bred Warmblood horses have been consigned.
Sale Chair, Katrina van den Bosch is thrilled with this year’s offering saying, “there is an amazing variety of pedigrees for this one-of-a-kind in North America sale.”
As a tribute to the quality of horses presented over the years it is interesting to follow the career of a young prospect from the sale to the show ring. One such sale graduate is Embarr (Excalibur x Beach Boy) shown under the name BL's Corleone.
