Elmar Lesch’s training and competition yard in Bavendorf is an address well known worldwide not only when it comes to either buying or selling eventing horses with good blood lines from all recognised German breeding areas but also when it comes to the training of both horse and rider for top level sport.
During the last 30 years Elmar Lesch has been present in the international eventing circus not only as a successful rider, coach or trainer but he has also been active in the professional marketing of sport horses. As a member of the stallion licensing committee for the Trakehner Breeding Association and his cooperation with many keen breeders from all the different German breeding associations, he maintains close contact to the base – there are very few people who know the market as well as Elmar Lesch does!
At the beginning of the 90s, as one of the first professional riders in Germany he successfully focused on and competed in eventing: he represented Germany twice at European Championships, was German Vice Champion as well as being successful in international sport with wins up to CCI3* level. At the National Championships for Young Horses, the Master of Horsemanship has ridden many young horses and has often been rewarded with the title. Elmar Lesch and his team have presented numerous youngsters on behalf of breeders not only at national championships but also at international championships for young horses and have returned home highly decorated. Many of these youngsters then found new owners via Elmar Lesch’s marketing programs and went on to be successful, winning championship medals in all age groups and at all levels.
Whereas it used to be the horses from England and Ireland that were at the top of the wish lists of solvent buyers, it is now the German bred horses with good blood lines that attract the most interest and have become coveted by the eventing communities around the world. In 2005 Elmar Lesch and his former business partner Iris Schless recognized the potential of a growing market and introduced, at that time and still to date nationally, the first auction for German elite eventing horses, this auction was to have a strong influence on the marketing of German eventing horses between 2005 and 2016. In 2010 the first Sales Day for eventing horses took place at Elmar Lesch’s equine training facility, since then this event has taken place annually and has become a fixture in the eventing calendar. Thanks to the good cooperation with numerous enthusiastic breeders, his world wide networking not to mention his Full-Service Package including his sales events, Elmar Lesch’s yard has become the ideal link between supply and demand.
