British Breeding Baileys Horse Feeds Equine Bridge and Futurity Elite Auction

Following the great success of our Equine Bridge Dressage event earlier this year, it is now the turn for our latest crop of British Breeding Baileys Horse Feeds Futurity Graduates from eventing and showjumping to join us for their very own tailored two-day training and evaluations programme, which will take place at the British Showjumping National Training Centre, at Hothorpe, from 28th-29th November.

The aim of the Equine Bridge is to support the very best Futurity graduates from each Olympic discipline on their journey into the sport and to provide an opportunity for riders and owners to meet some of the best up-and-coming British-bred horses. It is for that reason that we are particularly excited about a new concept of combining this autumn’s Bridge Event with the Futurity Elite Auction, at the BS National Training Centre on 30th November 2022, showcasing some of the highest scoring and most exciting eventers and showjumpers from this year’s summer series. 

The Futurity Elite Auction 

Every year, we see exceptionally talented and well-bred eventers and showjumpers at our Futurity evaluations, but their ongoing success in the sport would not be possible without the passion and commitment of owners and riders to take them on and allow them to fulfil their potential.  It is for that reason that our Futurity Elite Auction, now going into its third year, is a key component of building that all important bridge between breeding and the sport. 

Breeders need the opportunity to showcase their best stock to a national and international audience of investors who have the knowledge and ambition to take our best British-bred horses forward into the sport. Buyers need to be able to see a good selection of high-quality prospects in one place, with information they can trust.  

Among the myriad of foal and youngstock auctions, the Futurity Elite Auction is unique. Every candidate has first been assessed not only by an independent team of internationally experienced senior evaluators, but also by a veterinarian and nutritionist who, in addition to the standard sales vetting that all our auction lots must have passed as a matter of course, provide a detailed insight into each entry’s long-term prospects for a sporting career. 

Says British Breeding Director Jane Marson:

“We are very excited about this year’s selection of auction candidates for eventing and showjumping. We are in the fortunate position to have been able to select from a great range of entries who all received outstanding Futurity results and feedback. From those, we were able to pick out auction lots with exceptional pedigrees, placing a lot of emphasis on provenance from the mother lines, so our buyers can bid with confidence!”

The Bridge and the Futurity Elite Auction will both be livestreamed by ClipMyHorse, giving viewers and prospective investors from all over the world a front seat at the proceedings. The auction will be run as a hybrid event with online bidding and physical bidding available on the night. The online catalogue will go live on 22nd November 2022 on
