Nominations Open for the Stallion AI Services Meritoire Award

The prestigious Stallion AI Services Meritoire Award is presented to the person who, in the opinion of the Awards Committee has made an outstanding lifetime contribution to the performance sport horse and pony breeding industry.

Previous winners have been the Louella Stud for their contribution to sport horse breeding; Johanna Vardon, founder of the National Foaling Bank, for her contribution to the health and wellbeing of orphaned foals; Archie Smith Maxwell, breeder of Jumbo, one of the highest ranking event sires of all time; Professor Graham Suggett in recognition for a lifetime’s contribution to breeding through encouraging British studbooks to work together and his Chairmanship of the former National Equine Database. In 2015, the Award was made posthumously to Richard Meade OBE, as it was in 2016 when the award was made to Richard Matson, who had very sadly passed away on 11th December 2015. Richard had been instrumental in driving forward many initiatives in the sport horse-breeding world and was the first member of Supporters of British Breeding, set up by Desi Dillingham who is the current and very well deserved recipient of the Meritoire Award.

Tullis Matson, Managing Director of Stallion AI Services says, “We are proud to sponsor the Meritoire Award, we pride ourselves on the professional and committed customer service we provide to our clients, which is in keeping with the philosophy of this award.

Stallion AI Services understands that quality and longevity must be a priority when considering how valuable any contribution has been to the horse world which we all value so much”.
If there is someone you believe has made, or is making a valuable contribution to this sector of the British breeding industry and would be a worthy recipient of this esteemed award, click on the link to download a nomination form. Nominations close on 18th December 2017.

The award will be presented at the 21st Anniversary British Breeders Awards Celebratory Dinner, hosted and organised by the British Horse Foundation in London on 13 January 2018.

Future Sport Horses are on the look out for another TOP CLASS broodmare to join our breeding programme. We can offer a very knowledgeable and very caring home where the comfort and well being of our horses is paramount. We can provide excellent references from vets, farriers and previous owners who have sold or loaned mares to us.
The calibre of mare we are looking for means she must have competed herself to at least 3* level or have bred a horse of this level, or jumped to Foxhunter level or above.
If you have a mare of such quality we would love to hear from you to discuss a loan for one or more years, or purchase with you.

Madam Genius (chestnut filly born 15 May 2017) is for sale.

She has so much presence she is mesmerising. She is clever, athletic, bold yet sweet, and very beautiful with super conformation. She is quite simply going to be one pretty amazing horse when she matures. Expected height at maturity approx. 17.2hh.

Her breeding is, of course, her sire U-Genius, who combines the bloodlines of 2 outstanding gold medallists, Valegro and Uthopia, while her dam lines bring the refinement and beauty of the Florestan II descendant Mont du Cantal AA on the iconic dressage lines of Donnerhall and Rubinstein. A particular highlight is the dam line, which not only produced competition winnings of almost 1.5 m Euros, but also over 40 licensed stallions, including Wolkentaenzer, Wolkenstein and the famous Brentano. To summarise; this filly is a super combination of some of the best bloodlines available in modern dressage.

Please message for further information, serious enquiries only - and good home very important. Based in Gloucestershire, GB.

Absolutely top quality filly foal for sale. This one is purpose bred for eventing and looks every inch the event horse.

She's by Persiflage, a 3*** eventer himself who is by the legendary Primitive Rising and from the motherline of Tamarillo who won Badminton 4**** with William Fox-Pitt.

Her dam is by Uptons Deli Circus. He won European YR eventing gold and has sired 4**** eventers.

Her motherline is also outstanding. It has produced a 4**** and Olympic eventer and a Horse of the Year Show supreme champion.

You really don't find many horses bred like this any more. So many 'eventers' are dressage horses without enough movement or jumpers without enough jump. This one is bred to event and comes from generations of the best bloodlines that are sane enough to do dressage, brave enough to go cross country and careful enough to do showjumping.

The filly that's for sale is the dark bay. I've included a photo of her yearling full sister (chestnut) so you can get an idea of how she will look when she's older. There's also a photo of her granddam (grey) who was a Rolls Royce of a bloodhounding horse and competed very successfully up to PSG. Finally there's a photo of her sire flying over a XC fence.

This filly has it all. She won't disappoint you!

Expected to make around 16.2-16.3hh.
OIRO £4750.
