Once you’ve settled on the type of horse you need the next question is are you going to shop locally or are you prepared to look abroad.

Welcome to Unique Sporthorses! My name’s Geoff Butler and I’m an Australian dressage rider that’s based in Holland.
In 2009 after spending years working for some of the biggest names in dressage I created my own horse sales company with a difference. A company that works for the buyer, providing them with honest and transparent sales information and advice. A company that focuses on quality rather than quantity, and on long term client satisfaction.

“We are extremely satisfied with the quality of service and horses that Geoff showed us when we traveled to Holland with three clients looking for three very different horses. Geoff listened to our wish list and hand picked horses that were exactly what we had asked for. The days were very well organized and we liked that Geoff had great relationships with all of the stables that we visited. One of our clients purchased a beautiful PSG/intermediare 1 Dutch warmblood that we have had immense success with! He is currently ranked number one in the country going into the pan American selection trials! Geoff was very accommodating to all of our needs and was fabulous to work with. He made our horse buying trip a productive one. We will definitely continue to work with him in the future.”

“I had the pleasure of working with Geoff in April 2014. I travelled to Holland from the U.S. with my trainer in search of a young dressage horse with the talent to move up through the levels. I had only 4 full days to spend horse shopping before I needed to return home. My experience could not have been better. Besides being a true professional, Geoff is extremely personable and immediately put me at ease. His rapport with the owners and knowledge of each horse’s pedigree was extremely impressive. He efficiently scheduled our days so that no time was wasted and we were able to see and try every horse that met my search criteria. Luckily, on the third day I found my ‘dream horse’ and was able to revisit him on day 4 before we flew home. Once the decision was made to purchase Dolcetto, Geoff immediately went above and beyond by scheduling the vetting and personally attending. He went on to handle all transportation arrangements, a process that I would have found daunting. The entire process went so smoothly and Dolcetto arrived at my barn in GA. 4 weeks later. Geoff checked in often to be sure the horse was adjusting well and to congratulate us on our subsequent successes once we started competing. I would highly recommend Geoff to anyone considering a European horse shopping trip.”

“I have been working with Geoff for several years and he has found us some really top horses for the Hunter, Jumper and Equitation rings in the US. The horses we have imported through Unique Sporthorses have exceeded our expectations both in their show performance and reliable characters.”
