Showcasing The Stars of Tomorrow

With just under one month to go until the Equerry Bolesworth International Horse Show, preparations are well under for one of the show’s highlights, The Bolesworth Elite Yearling Auction. 

 Hosted on the Friday evening, the Elite Yearling Auction will once again offer a selection of World Class show jumping prospects from leading breeders across the UK & Europe.  This year’s vendors include renowned breeders Millfield Stud, Davenport Stud, Dutch Sport Horse Sales and Crown Stud. With breeding highlights from top class stallions, and a strong emphasis once again made on ‘Black Type’ dam lines, the class of 2019 is an outstanding collection of yearlings.

Nina Barbour explains: “We are very proud of what we have achieved with this auction, where we put an emphasis on black type dam lines. This year, we will be returning to our original format, showcasing an elite selection of top potential yearlings. Yearlings in June are at a great age for serious buyers and are able to demonstrate a good idea of their raw talent over a pole”.

Set in the prestigious Castle Arena against the backdrop of Bolesworth Castle, the Elite Yearling Auction is pleased to showcase many of the best show jumping lines including Balou Star, Cornet Oblensky and Big Star to name but a few. The carefully selected yearlings can be viewed by appointment prior to the auction using the excellent trial facilities, while the sports horse vets will be on site to complete pre-purchase examinations. 

The Elite Auction offers buyers an excellent opportunity to purchase a well-bred star for the future in a relaxed yet highly professional environment. The VIP hospitality provides excellent viewing for the auction, alternatively telephone bids can be arranged, and the auction can also be viewed at

Since the first auction 5 years ago, many horses have now started their jumping careers notably El Tigre (Diamant de Semilly x Cassini) and Jackson (Verdi x Heartbreaker). Both competitive in their own right and exciting prospects to watch for the future . (anymore info?)

The Bolesworth Elite Auction 2019 is set to deliver on the same scale, offering a fantastic opportunity for buyers to view a serious selection of well-bred yearlings all with the pedigree to perform on a world class stage.
