The 43rd Triangle Fall Sale, which recently changed ownership, was held concurrently with the 2022 Farnam AQHA and Adequan® Select World Championship Show. The featured horse sale expanded from what was originally a two-day sale to a three-day sale consisting of 426 catalogued horses.

Over the course of three-days, the sale combined for a total average sale price of $11,800 with over $3.6 million in gross sales on over 400 catalogued horses, and an 81% sold.

The high seller was Metilion (Metallic Cat-Sparktilion by Shining Spark), selling for $98,000. The 2019 palomino colt was consigned by Alan and Allison Chappell of Collinsville, Texas, and sold to Daniel Schrock of Green Forest, Arkansas. During the second day of the sale, a consignment by DK Performance Horses (agent for Emily Kirchenschlager) became the second-highest seller with a final bid of $55,000. QS Onetimelastfall (One Time Pepto-Autumn Kitty by High Brow Cat) was bought by Jody Nobles of Aynor, South Carolina.

The third-high seller was brought to the sale ring by Parker Slavin Performance Horses.
