Bolesworth launches A-List Auction

Bolesworth Elite Auctions introduced their all new ridden horse auction concept; the ‘A-List’, due to take place during the Dodson & Horrell Bolesworth International horse show on Friday 9th July.

The invitational event, hosted at Bolesworth, welcomed key industry influencers, sponsors, press, vendors and riders to be the first to hear about the new auction concept.

A new concept for the UK, the A-List Auction will offer an elite collection of hand-picked showjumpers, between the ages of four and seven years old. The launch marks a new era in Bolesworth Elite Auction’s evolution, having established successful foal and yearling auctions over the last six years.

Alongside Bolesworth Managing Director Nina Barbour, the Selection Team behind the A-list is headed up by Barry O Connor. A famous face on the International Showjumping Scene, Barry has spent his career working alongside the very best in the sport sourcing horses for clients from across the globe. The rest of the panel is formed of locally based International Showjumpers Dave Quigley, James Davenport, Angelie Von Essen and leading Sports Horse Vet Peter Scholefield.

With Peter Scholefield and the team from Hird & Partners on board, the auction will enforce a meticulous vetting procedure, with x-rays being fully screened as an important part of the selection process, that will be available seven days ahead of the auction for each horse, alongside a video showing the key parts of the live vetting with supporting commentary from Peter himself.
