Astrid Bolton featured dressage writer
Astrid has been riding and producing horses for over 35 years, having bought her first dealing horse aged 14. She still has a passion to find, breed, produce and sell young horses. Having completed at County Level, HOYS and Royal International Horse Show in both show-jumping and show/working hunters, she then sold the horses on and soon it became a full time operation that now includes buying and selling of sport horses worldwide. Having been one of the first producers to import Warmbloods over 20 years ago she has gone from show-jumpers and show horses to include top class eventers and dressage horses, many of which have been extremely successful. In 2010 alone Astrid had 6 young event horses at Badminton, including the winner ShadowBoxer, HOYS Foxhunter finalist Del Fuego, HOYS & RIHS workers winner Thor, 6 year old finalist Two Mills Valencia, top Heavy-Weight Hunter Avalanche, RIHS winner Lanson, riding horses Eclipse and champion 4 year old dressage in Florida USA Casu, Shearwater Young Dressage Finalist Furst Kiss and many ,many more ! Having recently moved to larger purpose built premises, Astrid continues to breed, source and produce top quality sport horses for all disciplines and for 2011 is very excited about young dressage prospects Zidaane and stallion Furst Kiss.
