AES Announce Arena UK Foal Auction for Eventers and Showjumpers

The annual AES foal auctions have become a great way for breeders from across the UK to showcase their foals to wider audiences, and for riders and owners to come and find their next future star. 

For 2019, we are delighted to announce a new auction date and venue, with a special auction aimed at eventers and showjumpers at the busy Arena UK Show on 16th September. 

AES Director Joris van den Oetelaar explains: "We have listened to feedback from the riding community, and are excited about this new auction, which will give buyers the opportunity to see 40 individually selected eventing and showjumping foals in one convenient venue. All foals are linear scored and carefully evaluated and come with a veterinary health certificate, so buyers can be confident of their quality." 

All AES registered foals are eligible for entry into the auction. The selections for the sale will take place at the British Breeding Futurity Series and the Elite Foals Tour. Breeders wishing to be considered are invited to contact for further information. To enter the Futurity series, go to
