More than just a Sale…..It is an EVENT!
To All Membership & Clydesdale Enthusiasts,
Just a quick note from the National Clydesdale Sale committee. We are building another great event for all Clydesdale Breeders and enthusiast. As you know the National Clydesdale Sale has moved to the brand new Michiana Event Center in Shipshewana, IN. I personally had the pleasure of touring the New MEC in late 2017 and believe me it is a state of the art facility. The sale again will all be under one roof. There is an endless amount of stalls, beautiful stadium seating arena for the tack sale, driving & riding demonstrations and Preview but most importantly Sale day. The exhibitor’s hall will be jam packed with vendors. The concession stand will also be ready to roll with adequate staffing to alleviate long lines.
We will have the Preferred seating/tables again this year so please book your tables in advance. There is a form to reserve your table on the website – www.clydesusa.com.
We have a great line up of Clydesdales already, but if you missed getting your entries in by Feb. 1st we are extending the catalog deadline to February 12th. This will be the final extension and your entries must be post marked for the 12th to be in the catalog. We will be taking un-cataloged entries until April 16th.
We are very excited to be hosting the National Sale at the new MEC. Shipshewana, IN. It will be a great “tourism get away” in a beautiful part of the country. Thank you all in advance for your support and we hope to see you in April!!!
