Welcome to Canyon Sport Horses, importers of European sport horses, high-end PRE Dressage horses and ponies. We are committed to bringing horses with superior European conformations and bloodlines to the American sport horse community.

Top-Quality Horses
Our association with Germany’s largest dressage and show jumping barns, as well as with breeders all over Europe, has enabled us to create a broad, reliable network for scouting and selecting top quality horses at all levels. We regularly travel to Europe to trial choice horses to bring to the U.S. for direct sale. Our focus is on talented young horses and exceptional dressage horses and jumpers with captivating conformation, type, and ride-ability. We select horses from all schooling levels, beginner to Grand Prix. Every horse is vet-checked, x-rayed, and personally trialed by us in Europe prior to purchase. Our skill, experience and enthusiasm are all dedicated to fulfilling your horse ownership dreams, and we’re proud of our selections.

Individualized Service
Once our horses are in our care, we continue to develop them with careful individualized and performance-oriented training. We invite you to visit our stables, trial our horses and meet with our trainers. If you have any questions about our programs or horses, they'll be answered openly and honestly. We also understand that your trainer knows your riding style and abilities better than anyone, so we welcome his/her involvement in the selection process. Our goal is to help you make the right choice, and it begins with making the process as comfortable and personal to you as possible.

In addition, we offer private buying trips to some of the best stables in Germany. We analyze your needs and goals, pre-select suitable horses and help you to evaluate which horses best complement you and your objectives. After you’ve made your selection, we handle all coordination of the purchase transaction including the vetting process, insurance, and transport to the U.S.

It is our pleasure to answer any questions, provide further details, or advise you personally as you’re making this wonderful decision. Please feel free to contact us by phone or e-mail, or come visit our stables and try our extraordinary horses in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Buying a horse is both a financial and emotional investment. It's important to know as much as possible about the horse, but it’s also important to know who you're buying from…
