Stallion Event is Bigger and Better than Ever

The British Breeding Stallion Event, sponsored by Baileys Horse Feeds in association with Competition Stallions, is shaping up to be the biggest and best yet.  Over 90 of the top licensed and graded sport horse stallions standing in the UK will be featured, from Olympic legends to some exciting young talent making their debut outings.  The event will be held at Addington Equestrian Centre on Saturday 8th February, doors open at 9.30am. 

Eventing stallions will be first to feature, and the show will be opened by the young and talented Future Guilty Pleasure, by Levisonn out of Future Guilty Secret (Cantoblanco), bred by Julia Hodkin at Future Sport Horses.  Future Guilty Pleasure was the sire of both the 2019 highest scoring Eventer in the British Breeding Futurity Series as well as the  National Elite Foal Tour Eventing Champion.  Tiger Attack, Timolin, Welton Double Cracker, Philanderer, Jamhoori and Britannia Royale are among the selection of eventing sires on show, with a number of full TBs available to add the much valued TB blood to event horse breeding. 

Robert Whitaker will be bringing two exciting young stallions for the Showjumping section - Vermento is a young home-bred stallion by the legendary Argento, and Cavaso Z, by Cascor Z ex Darco mare Cha Cha Van Overis.  Olympic legend, Big Star, will be back, along with Amiro Z, Comfort, Cristo and Je T’aime Flamenco among the top showjumping sires on show. 

Dressage will conclude the day with proven sires and some exciting stallions new to the breeding scene.  Branduardi, Dream On and Durable are among the elite dressage stallions to see.  Woodlander stallions taking part include Woodlander Double Bubble and Woodlander Wavavoom, sire of countless Futurity Elite Foals, among whom the all time record is held by Farouche’s son, Woodlander Wild Child, now standing at the famous State Stud at Celle and whose first crop of foals alone contained 3 internationally licensed stallions.   

With over 90 stallions to view for showjumping, dressage and eventing, this is the biggest British Breeding Stallion Event yet! All stallions will be shown in the arena, the stables will be open for visitors to meet stallions and connections, plus there is a wide range of trade stands offering advice, products and services to the breeding industry. 

Admission is £15 for pre-booked general admission tickets to include British Breeder magazine/programme and Competition Stallions Guide, £54 for VIP with 2 course carvery lunch, £18 general admission on the door.
