Deister Z

Deister Z, our 2013 Zangersheide gelding, recently arrived from Europe where he has an impressive show record through 1.40m, including FEI classes. This year Deister qualified for the 1.40m nationals in Europe, and shows potential for 1.50m or more. Deister is brave, careful and very powerful — a true upper level jumper who knows his job. Deister Z will be a perfect partner for an aspiring Grand Prix rider, whether for a young professional to develop or a very good amateur who is ready to step into the big tracks. Deister is easy in the barn, friendly and loves people, especially children. His previous owner is a former Olympic rider, so Deister has all the flatwork, including dressage, and training to make it to the top levels and be very competitive. We are excited to see his development now that he is in North America.

Kalista D’Houtveld

Kalista is a sporty modern jumper who is currently showing in her age classes in Europe. She has successfully competed in 1.20m and shows scope for 1.30m or more. Kalista is brave, forgiving and kind — a perfect young horse to develop. Kalista is out of a 1.60m sire and has a very good dam line. She is not mareish, loves people and always tries to please her rider. We see a bright future for Kalista!

What our Clients are saying

Establishing and sustaining
trusted partnerships

“I am thrilled with my new 6 year old Oldenburg,Cristageno (“Toto”) purchased from Westminster Sport Horse Sales this summer! I tried several Westminster horses and was impressed with their quality, ride-ability and breeding.  It was worth the wait to find this special young horse.  Westminster was easy to work with and the purchase of Toto was completed quickly and efficiently.  I highly recommend Westminster as a great resource in North America for performance horses imported from Europe!”

Dana Hensen


“I purchased a horse in Jan. 2022 from Renee Ruder, owner of Westminster Horse Sales. The entire process went very smoothly, from communications, exchange of information, vetting records shared, show records transparent, and even info and records from when the horse was imported Sept. 2021. Any questions asked were answered promptly. Loving my new boy!”

The Heart of The Selle Français | Fall 2019

This past fall I had the privilege of traveling to Saint-Lô, Normandy to visit the Le Pin National Stud Farm (Haras National de Saint-Lô). My goal in traveling to Normandy was to learn about the Selle Français breed in general, but more specifically to understand how...
