The Stallion Event

Tomorrow (Saturday 16th March) sees the Stallion Event taking place at Addington Manor in Buckinghamshire. The showcase of some of the very best sporthorse stallions standing in the UK is organised by British Breeding and supported by Baileys Horse Feeds and Competition Stallions.

There are too many stallions attending to preview each here but some of the most exciting already are featured on this site. They include:

Dankeschon – a recent arrival from Germany with an excellent small tour record about to start competing Grand Prix and with a wonderful damline

Noble Warrior – a tall, athletic British bred show jumper who is now competing internationally with some eye catching results

Volatis Defiant – a dual purpose gentleman of interest to showing, eventing and dressage breeders

Britannia’s Mail – a son of one of the greatest eventing mares ever, who is now at Advanced level himself

Multicouture – a young dual graded stallion with an eyecatching mix of colour genetics

Spring’s Spirit – a British bred eventing sire who has his first offspring on the sunshine tour this year

Volatis Defiant

Tickets can be purchased on the door with the first horse in the arena at 10.30. There are a number of tradestands covering all aspects of the industry, and the stables will be open to the public. If you are thinking of covering your mare this season, this event cannot be missed.

A full list of stallions with start times can be found on
