Designed to allow buyers to buy direct from breeders without any intermediaries, and to promote the various breeding farms and stud-books, The Best Horses, a subsidiary of Balsan Enchères, collaborates with the industry’s best-performing breeding professionals to offer, with each single sale, a selection of promising equines for the international circuit. After a first successful experience with the Elevage de Riverland, The Best Horses has decided to partner with the Selle Français Stud-Book. This decision stems from a genuine desire to develop a series of marketing support incentives for breeders participating in the breed championships. 

A thorough selection was made at the regional level with the support of regional associations and with the assistance of a network of judges from all over the country. This helped identify and qualify the best representatives of the breed for the 4 championships of the stud-book:

- Physical and live auction of the Championship of Selle Français Foals at the Normandy Horse Show in Saint-Lô, 5th September 2020.

- Live auction of the fillies Championship for the Selle Français 2- and 3-year-olds during the Great Week of Fontainebleau, 6th October 2020.

- On-site and live auction of the 3 day eventing hopeful 3-year-olds at the Mondial du Lion, 17th October 2020. 

- Live auction of the 3-year-olds Championship: «Jumping» on 3rd November 2020.

These events are a promotional and marketing shows for breeders. The Stud-Book’s professional «selectors» remain the judges who are trained to meet the expectations of the screening body according to its breeding program criteria.

«It is a real pleasure and a great pride for us to be able to collaborate with such a great Stud-Book as the Selle Français, and also to assist them for their promotion. The world’s greatest will be presented during these sales in order to find a buyer in France or abroad. There are incredible lots that absolutely should not be missed... It will be an amazing show!» said Marie-Line Balsan, founder of The Best Horses and auctioneer at these sales.
