Starting at the 2014 AQHA World Championship Show Sale, buyers have an added appeal for purchasing a horse at the sale. A new AQHA World Show Sale bonus program will attract more buyers and also give breeders and trainers an incentive to consign their horse to the 2014 AQHA World Show Sale.
Developed by the AQHA World Championship Show Sale Committee, the new bonus program offers buyers the option to pay $1,000, which will make the World Show Sale-purchased horse eligible to show at one or all of the AQHA world shows (Zoetis Versatility Ranch Horse, Adequan Select, Built Ford Tough AQHYA and AQHA world championship shows) the year following the sale without having to qualify for the respective show. The $1,000 must be paid in addition to standard world show entry fees.
“The goal of the AQHA World Show Sale Committee is to encourage potential buyers to use this venue to purchase their next world show prospect and to see the financial benefit of doing so,” said Doug Hayes, AQHA director of business development. Although Hayes is the in-house staff member who handles the sale, he answers to the AQHA World Show Sale Committee, which comprises AQHA members who are industry leaders in their disciplines.
“The addition of the World Show Sale Bonus Program is the next step in helping buyers realize those dreams of owning a world show prospect,” Hayes added. “The bonus program is certain to bring more buyers to the sale, so do not miss your opportunity to consign your horse.”
The consignment deadline is September 3. And the consignment application is now available for anyone interested in selling their horse at the 2014 AQHA World Show Sale. Download the consignment application.
