BRITISH BREEDERS’ NETWORK
The Future of Breeding!
British Breeders’ Network aims to support and promote the breeding of all types of British-bred horses and ponies – from native breeds to Thoroughbreds – from riding horses to future Olympic champions – and to develop a fully inclusive network owned by and for the benefit of all British equine breeders, by sharing best practice and creating relationships that support improved trade, wide participation and the breeding of horses ‘fit for purpose’.

100 horses contested 15 classes at the Baileys Horse Feeds sponsored, Great British Mare Foal & Youngstock and Futurity Elite Championships, held at Moreton Morrell College in Warwickshire on Saturday 9th September.
Despite the early start and late finish, punctuated by two dramatic thunderstorms, our breeders were not deterred from travelling from as far afield as North Yorkshire, Devon and Cornwall, to present the best of British horse breeding in the main arena in front of German judge Katrin Burger.
Open to all British-bred mares, foals and youngstock up to 3 years, of all disciplines, breeds and types, there was a class and championship for everyone. With generous prize money on offer for both horses and ponies, all horses placed 1st and 2nd went forward to the final championship judging.
Top honours and an impressive haul of awards went to Lisa Maynard’s 3-year-old stallion, Balou For Pleasure. This young Futurity Elite stallion sired by the famous Balou de Rouet, won the Futurity Show Jumper Championship, the GBMFS Show Jumper Championship and SHOW SUPREME, to take home 3 Championship titles on the day. Champion also at our Richmond Qualifier in July, Balou For Pleasure has racked up 4 championships in under 6 weeks! A truly remarkable result.
Equally well-deserved, Lynne Crowden’s young stallion, Woodlander Wild Love, sired by Woodlander Wild Child, won both the 2-year-old Futurity Dressage class and the Futurity Dressage Championship.
Our grateful thanks go to our generous sponsors – without whose support none of this would have been possible: Baileys Horse Feeds (main series sponsor) + Elite Stallions + Woodlander Stud + Sulby Hall Stud + Kevin Sparrow Photography + 1LG Digital.
