Waverly, Iowa is long known for hosting one of the mid-west's largest horse sales twice a year. The spring event for 2020 runs March 27- March 31. Four days of tack, equipment, and horse sales that draws people from all walks of life and from all across the country. On Tuesday and Wednesday this year the tack and equipment sales will be held. Thursday and Friday is when the actual horse sales will be occurring. Finally, on Saturday they have a mini sale. All sales take place at the Waverly Sales Barn (2212 5th Ave. NW Waverly, Iowa) and there is no admission for attending any of the events. There is a full catalog available that details all tack, equipment, and horses that will be for sale and what day they will be up for sale. Even if you are not interested in purchasing anything, just being a part of the horse sale is a wonderful springtime adventure. The animals are beautiful and you have an opportunity to meet new people. For more information you can visit the website at http://www.waverlysales.com/index.html.
