The American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) announced on June 4 that the 41st Triangle Fall Sale will be held Nov. 6-7 in conjunction with the 2020 AQHA World Championship Show at State Fair Park in Oklahoma City.
“We are excited to partner with Jim Ware, who is the owner of AuctionWare LLC and producer of the Triangle Horse Sales, to host its annual Triangle Fall Sale at the most prestigious American Quarter Horse show of the year,” said Craig Huffhines, AQHA executive vice president. “AQHA hasn’t hosted a sale at the AQHA World Show since 2013, and we look forward to working with Jim and his team to bring their highly anticipated annual sale to the AQHA World Show not only for our members, but also for Western performance horse enthusiasts across the nation.”
Specializing in Western performance American Quarter Horses, Triangle Horse Sales are known in the industry as a versatile consignment venue.
“AQHA staff is developing a dynamic AQHA World Show schedule filled with cutting, cow, ranch-horse, speed-event and additional special event competition built around the sale that should attract participants from all over the country,” Huffhines said. “Sale enthusiasts will be able to attend the sale, watch the top American Quarter Horses in the world compete for World champion honors and shop at the AQHA Trade Show while in Oklahoma City.”
Ware echoed the sentiment.
“We are delighted to bring our 2020 Fall Sale to the AQHA World Championship Show,” he said. “This will be a perfect fit for us and AQHA, while giving customers and members the best new sale concept to come along in years. AQHA has updated its AQHA World Show schedule to include the same type of horses on that first weekend that Triangle is famous for selling.
“Additionally, all pre-qualification for this year’s show has been waived, due to the health issues in our country. Combine those facts and we feel it should create a near-perfect scenario for like-minded horsemen, buyers and sellers to be together in Oklahoma City in the fall.”
For those who prefer to bid offsite, Triangle offers pre-approved absentee bidding by phone or through DVAuction.
Consignment details will be available at www.trianglehorsesales.net.
The AQHA World Show brings together exhibitors, owners, breeders and fans of the American Quarter Horse from around the world for more than two weeks of competition, educational opportunities and shopping at the trade show, which features more than 100 vendors from across the United States.
