“AQHA is looking forward to a high-quality group of horses at this year’s AQHA World Show Sale,” said Doug Hayes, AQHA director of business development. Although Doug is the in-house staff person handling the show, he answers to the AQHA World Show Sale Committee, which comprises AQHA members who are industry leaders in their disciplines.

“Many buyers have the dream of one day owning an AQHA world champion,” Hayes continued. “AQHA and the World Show Sale Committee want to help facilitate that dream, and that’s why we took special care in selecting the horses consigned to this year’s sale.”

Before accepting a horse into the sale, the committee members analyzed each horse’s performance record, pedigree, dam and sire performance records, conformation and athletic ability.
