The 6 year old World Championship Final also did not disappoint in terms of food for thought as a breeder. These are some of the rides that caught my eye.
As a breeder, I try and make good use of my subscription to internet channels such as Clip My Horse to watch equestrian events from around the globe, and am always making a mental note of the bloodlines of horses that catch my eye. On this occasion I have been watching the World Young Horse Championships, which for the dressage horses is held at Ermelo in Holland.
On Thursday 14th June, the Equerry Bolesworth International Horse Show ran their Elite Foal and Yearling Auction in the beautiful grounds of Bolesworth Castle. Once again the auction attracted high caliber national and international buyers looking to source youngstock with impeccable jumping pedigrees.
Every year we focus on the British bred contenders lining up for the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials – one of the pinnacle events of modern eventing.

Please find a list of all stallions taking part in the event on February 18th at Addington Manor
13th January 2018 saw the 21st edition of the British Horse Foundation awards with a glamorous black tie dinner at the Grange City Hotel in central London. The evening is a great opportunity for breeders and industry experts to network and catch up with old friends, and most importantly to celebrate those British bred horses who have shone both nationally and abroad.
