Buying & Selling Horses
Mette and Michel Assouline have long been established as experienced producers of dressage horses and can help you through the difficult process of finding and buying, or arranging the sale of a horse.
They have supplied dressage horses to top international riders Carl Hester and Fiona Bigwood (UK); Marietta Almasy (France); Claudia Aulenbacher and Michael Klimke (Germany) and Ursula Travers (USA); Polly Hodges and Rebecca Drane (UK) with two international Young Rider Team horses. Paralympic team gold medallist horses LJT Norman Lucas and Athene were also supplied to the Lady Joseph Trust and Di Redfern for riders Anne Dunham and Sophie Christiansen (UK). British Dressage KBIS National champion Susanna Wade and Regional champion Amanda Shirtcliffe were also on horses produced and supplied by Assouline Dressage.
For those looking to buy a potential or established dressage horse please browse through the ‘for sale’ page to see what is available although not all our dressage horses for sale are listed. If you can’t find your dream horse feel free to send us an email with your specific requirements.
If you would like to sell your horse we can give you a free assessment at our premises. We can then take care of marketing your horse on your behalf, supervise his daily training and viewings to potential customers. Managing the sale process will also be our responsibility and that includes vetting and transport arrangements (there is a ‘horses for sale’ livery charge).
We can also arrange shopping trips to selected European contacts and provide you with our expert advice on finding your perfect partner. (We do not provide any guarantees or accept liability for horses sold on behalf of owners and their full contact details can be provided for further information at the time).
Below you will find some horses that have passed through the Assouline stables on their way to success or you might want to see a more comprehensivne list in HORSES SOLD :
Escapado (pictured with Carl Hester) was produced by Assouline Dressage from a 3 year old to a ridden National Young Horse British Championship finalist before being sold on to Carl Hester at the age of 6. Escapado and Carl then became UK National Grand Prix Champions, and were best of the British Team at the Athens Olympics.
Michel and Mette also produced ‘High Fashion’ on behalf of a client. This licensed black stallion by Hohenstein achieved the top price at The 2000 Equilibra Auction as a 4 year old, a record for a British non-Thoroughbred sale to this day. They also produced the top priced Equilibra Challenge Auction horse, ‘Remember Me’, also on behalf of a client.
