Feb. 22, 2021 – The COVID-19 pandemic caused a shift in the world at large, and one characteristic of the “new normal” is online shopping, even for horses. With travel to Europe at a standstill for competitive American equestrians, the European Select Auction took matters into their own hands and brought the best horses that Europe had to offer to America! The European Select Auction will feature 12 hand-selected horses, perfect for show-jumping, hunters, and equitation, from March 6th-8th, 2021.
Developed and implemented by Olympic equestrian Sharn Wordley, and his partner of nearly a decade, renowned Belgian horse dealer, Steve Tinti, the European Select Auction is the ideal horse shopping experience for equestrians of all levels.
“I am thrilled to be a part of the team that is launching the European Select Auction,” said New Zealand Olympic showjumping athlete Sharn Wordley. “I’m proud of the group of horses that we are bringing to the market and hope that European Select Auctions will be a household name in the American horse show community.”
Possessing well-respected bloodlines such as Catoo, Troubadour d’ Aurel, Diamant de Semilly, Namelus and more, the European Select horses have been meticulously chosen to create a curated catalog that is show ring ready.
The catalog includes 10-show jumpers, one hunter and one equitation horse that are all of competition age and training level.
All of the horses offered in the auction have been vetted for soundness and transported to the United States – making the buying process simple and hassle-free. Potential buyers will find a custom catalog for each horse that features pictures and a detailed video demonstrating their respective capabilities and information on pedigree, temperament, abilities and show record, (if applicable).

“With European Select Auctions, we have moved away from the model of only offering young horses that need additional training, to horses that are proven top competitors,” remarked Steve Tinti. “I am incredibly proud of the horses that we are putting forward for consideration and think that you will not find a better representation of top sport horses.”
The starting price for each horse will be €30,000, with bids being accepted beginning March 6th and closing March 8th, 2021. The registration process is simple and intuitive. REGISTER NOW so you do not miss out on this opportunity to purchase your next winning mount!
