British Breeding Futurity Elite Auction 2022 for Showjumpers and Eventers

On 30th November 2022, the British Breeding Futurity Elite Auction will again open its doors to offer a handpicked selection from the best Futurity entries for Showjumping and Eventing spanning from foals to 3-year-olds.

Interested buyers are welcome meet these exceptional young horses and their breeders at the British Showjumping National Training Centre, where the auction will be conducted in collaboration with ClipMyHorse as a physical and livestreamed hybrid event, giving prospective investors from all over the world a front seat at the proceedings.

Among the myriad of foal and youngstock auctions, the Futurity Elite Auction is unique.

Every candidate has attended the British Breeding Baileys Horse Feeds Futurity evaluations, a rigorous assessment process that is unrivalled across the world. At the Futurity, the horses are seen not only by an independent team of internationally experienced senior evaluators, but also by a veterinarian and nutritionist who provide a detailed insight into each horse’s long-term prospects for a sporting career.

Says British Breeding Director Dr Eva-Maria Broomer:

“Every year, exceptionally talented and well-bred eventers and showjumpers come forward for our world leading Futurity evaluations. It is from this pool of horses that we invited only the top scorers to come forward for what has to be our best selection of showjumping and eventing prospects to date!

“The Futurity has proven its worth as a reliable process for identifying and nurturing talent and ability. The outstanding achievements of Futurity Graduates such as Lordships Graffalo at this summers Eventing World Championships in Pratoni are testimony to that.

“These success stories would not be possible without the passion and commitment of owners and riders to take on our best British bred horses 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.

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!

“In addition to their Futurity assessment, all auction lots have passed a pre-sale vetting within 14 days of the auction, with information available to prospective buyers.

“Our auction stables will open to visitors in the afternoon on 30th November 2022 at the British Showjumping National Training Centre, Hothorpe, LE17 6QX where buyers are warmly invited to join us for a glass of fizz and attend our live auction event in the evening.

“For those who cannot attend in person, the Futurity Elite Auction will be livestreamed by ClipMyHorse and 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 https://britishbreeding.weauction.nl/auctions.”
