17th ANNUAL FALL
TACK CONSIGNMENT SALE
September 3-7, 2020
We regret to announce the cancellation of the Equestrian Exchange scheduled for Sept. 3-7, 2020 at the NC State Fairgrounds. In addition to some personal challenges at this time, the uncertainty of the pandemic prevents us from safely moving forward. We had every intention of holding this event; however, in the last month we have seen the cancellation of Quarter Horse Congress, USEF Pony Finals, and NC State Fair to name just a few. These cancellations in addition to projections by the governor and recommendations by the CDC have made us reassess our original plans.
Thank you to those who have privately contacted us about your thoughts and concerns. It was a hard decision since we truly enjoy hosting this sale and many of you have become friends over the last 17 years. We have had sales through hurricanes before but this seems like the worst storm we have had to face yet. After reviewing the numbers, we can tell many people are wary about attending the event. Sign-ups are only a very small fraction of normal. There are just too many unknowns and challenges to proceed. This decision was not made lightly. We apologize, especially to those who have already been tagging or have made travel plans. We fully intend on having the sale again as soon as we can do it safely, hopefully by next Spring. Barcode tags can be transferred and items do not need to be retagged. Emails will be sent and information will be posted on our website and Facebook as soon as dates are set for next years tack sales. We wish you health & safety as we navigate through this difficult time.
