  • Horses will begin arriving at the Illinois State Fairgrounds on Wednesday, April 20th. Maps will be posted in the stables so buyers can locate specific horses and/or farms. There is time throughout the Sale event to visit horses at their stalls. Please feel free to ask the consignors specific questions about their horses, and ask for the horses to be pulled out of the stall for closer inspection. Our event strives to be as buyer friendly as possible.
  • Vendors will be at the venue all three days of the Sale. Items available will include horse related clothing, harness, barn and show supplies, wagons, and trailers just to name a few.
  • Starting Thursday, April 21st, free educational seminars will be held on a variety of topics relating to owning and showing the Clydesdale horse. Seminar presenters will be veteran horseman and horsewomen who have a wealth of knowledge to share.

  • Friday, April 22nd is all about the horses! But first, let’s take time to appreciate the consignors and new association members. for this year will be a breakfast for these folks to get the day started right. Following breakfast will be the mandatory halter preview of the horses organized by age group. This gives buyers time to look at the horses, learn about pedigrees, and hear specific comments about the horses from the consignors.
  • Friday, April 22nd will be the National Clydesdale Sale Cart and Riding Challenges! This is sure to be exciting and is only open to horses that are entered in the Sale. The Challenges will be followed by driving of the Sale horses.

The Banquet will include a charity auction, silent auction, Hall of Fame inductions, All American presentations, crowning of the National Clydesdale Queen, and a DJ and dancing!
