AES Foal Auctions


The foal auctions have become a great way for breeders from across the UK to showcase their foals to wider audiences, and we are committed to continuing to offer you this opportunity. 


For 2019, we are delighted to announce an amazing new development for British bred showjumping foals in the Bolesworth AES Elite Foal Auction: This sale will take place on 17thAugust alongside the new Bolesworth Young Horse Championship, which includes the Official British Showjumping Young Horse Championships & WBFSH Qualifiers.


AES registered foals from all over the UK are eligible for pre-selection on the basis of their pedigrees. You are invited to submit full details of the foals they would like to be considered. Our vision for this auction is to provide a truly exquisite and unique selection of foals not only by the very best proven showjumping sires, but with outstanding damline provenance to match.


To submit your foal’s details for pre-selection,email, no later than 15 May (if you foal is not born yet by that point, just put in a due date). We will then get in touch to advise you of the next steps. 


The Bolesworth auction will run alongside our other auction activities, which includes plans for another AES Elite Dressage Foal Auction and a further showjumping and eventing auction. The latter will take place at Arena UK during their busy September show on 16thSeptember. 


Selection for those sales will take place at the British Breeding Futurity Series and the Elite Foals Tour. Breeders wishing to be considered for those auctions are invited to contact

Elite Foals Tour

The AES will be sending evaluators to every venue, and you are welcome to present your foal for auction selection there and then. The costs for the AES evaluation on the day will be a discounted rate of £20 per foal, which you will need to pay on top of your entry fee to the Elite Foals Tour. If your foal is selected for the auction, you will not need to pay the £20 evaluation fee.
