The Alberta Chapter of the Canadian Warmblood Horse Breeders Association presents the Fall Classic Breeders’ Sale on an annual basis each autumn and this year is our 27th anniversary! This is an elegant 3-day event, presenting and offering some of the finest Warmblood Horses for sale by auction. These horses are typically used in the Olympic disciplines of dressage, jumping, and combined training.
We are soliciting submissions of original artwork for consideration for use in our promotional materials, catalogue cover, website, and advertising. The selected piece will be sold as Lot 0 of the sale, with 80% of the proceeds going to the artist. Artwork of any medium -- oil, pastel, watercolour, photography, etc. -- is acceptable, including limited edition prints of original work. The committee is looking for an image that depicts or represents the Warmblood horse in some fashion related to breeding and/or sport.
To make a submission to the committee, please go to our web site at www.fallclassicsale.com (Artists tab) and complete one submission form for each entry, along with a corresponding photograph/scan of the work. If you have any questions or would like further information about this event, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Rocky Mountains are perhaps Alberta's most recognizable geographic feature. Their rugged and spectacular scenery attract visitors from all over the world. Much of Alberta's oil and gas are found beneath the foothills that lie along the base of the Rockies. The rest of the province is housed on a great plain, or prairie, which Alberta shares with Saskatchewan on the east, and with the state of Montana to the south. Alberta's cool winter climate is a result of its northern location, which exposes residents to cold arctic air masses from the north. In contrast, summers are usually warm. Regardless of the season, Alberta's skies are often sunny. Alberta is home to the world famous Spruce Meadows facility where some of the best Show Jumping in North America can be seen. 2005 Kubota Cup winner, Tammie Phillips on Lucas, a Canadian Warmblood gelding, proudly display the orange cooler of the development series sponsor. The Alberta Chapter of the CWHBA is an incredibly active and vibrant one with many activities including the Fall Classic Sale featured at right of the banner.
