Record price paid at Equilibra sale

  • British sports horse sale sees top dressage prospect sell for £85,000

    A top price of £85,000 was realised at the fourth Equilibra dressage auction held at the Towerlands EC in Essex.

    High-Fashion, a three-year-old black stallion produced by international dressage riders and trainers Michel and Mette Lubker Assouline, opened at £30,000 and attracted fast bidding before being finally knocked down to Sarah Pidley from Windsor.

    High Fashion created a new record price at a British auction for a non-Thoroughbred horse.

    The previous record was last year’s Equilibra sale price of £39,000 – the four year old Remember Me, also produced by the same yard.

    High-Fashion is by the up-and-coming Trakehner sire Hohenstein, a son of the renowned sire Caprimond by a Hanoverian state premium mare by the top dressage sire Weltmeyer.

    The horse will now go into training with David Hunt in preparation for next year’s Equilibra Challenge.

    David, who also trained last year’s top price horse Remember Me, said: “We have been abroad looking for a horse of this calibre for a while and we came to the sale specifically to buy him – he is something special.”

    Forty-five lots came under the hammer of Brightwells, the auctioneers from Herefordshire, and the majority of horses were sold with three fetching £20,000.

    The top price foal Revelation made £6,100, a colt by Rotspon, a state stud stallion at Verden who is a son of the grand prix sire Rubenstein.
