Grandor, our 2011 Dutch Warblood (Lexicon x Padinus), is an incredibly brave, catty and fast 1.30m jumper. Grandor will jump anything — water, grobs, walls, you name it! Since being imported to the U.S. in 2019, Grandor has had multiple top placings on the West Coast in the 1.20m, including at Desert Horse Park, Hunter Creek Farm (Wilsonville), Oregon High Desert Classic and Thunderbird. Recently, Grandor has been showing in the 1.30m and already has a top 5 placing at Thunderbird Show Park. Grandor has been ridden by a junior and had top placings. He will be the perfect partner for a competitive amateur or junior rider who wants to win!

Oackley du Lys
Oackley du Lys is a 2014 Belgian Warmblood gelding who has experience jumping 1.25m in Europe. Oackley is a sweet and confident boy who is perfect for any amateur or junior rider. Oackley is brave, has a rhythmic canter, wonderful flatwork and loves his job. He has shown with a 12 year old beginner at .90m as well as with professionals at 1.25m. Because Oackley is so consistent and such a nice mover, we think he will be a wonderful hunter derby or equitation horse. In reality, Oackley is a 3-ring horse, and he can go in any direction. Don’t miss out on this talented and kind-hearted star!

Bohéme De B’Neville
Bohéme de B’Neville is a 2011 Selle Français mare who has experience up to 1.40m in Europe. Bohéme is a modern and sporty-type jumper with an extensive record, and who loves her job. Bohéme is a dream on the ground, has some Dressage training and is not mare-ish at but has impeccable manners. Bohéme can take a joke and will be an amateur or junior rider’s dream partner. Bohéme will arrive in the U.S. in November.

We are excited to announce that Danturo has been SOLD!
Danturo Manciais is a 7 year-old (2013) Selle Français (Canturo x Cassini II) gelding imported from France January 2020. Danturo has been jumping 1.20m in France and is ready to move up. He is incredibly brave and adjustable and shows scope to jump bigger — understandable with his impressive pedigree! Danturo has beautiful gaits and could go in any direction, including equitation, international derbies or the jumper ring. As a new import, his Green status will not be broken. Danturo will make a fantastic addition to any barn, and will be an amazing young prospect. He can be seen this spring in Sonoma in May
Breed: Selle Francias
We are excited to announce that Cristageno has been SOLD!
Cristageno (Cristallo x Pageno) is a 2015 Oldenburg gelding, recently imported from Germany. Cristageno (Cristo) is sweet, brave, incredibly intelligent and well mannered — he will make a junior or adult amateur an amazing partner in the Hunter or Equitation ring. Cristo has a beautiful jumpstyle, is incredibly well-balanced and has natural lead changes. He is young and green so would flourish in a professional program.

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!”
“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!”

After my last blog post, Heart of The Selle Français, I thought I would write about my experience importing our very special sales horse, Danturo Manciais. While in Normandy last fall we saw and tried many beautiful sales horses. The final decision was difficult but...
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...
