About Sorensen Stables

Chris Sorensen has bought and sold horses from Europe for nearly two decades, with much of that time also spent as one of the top Canadian riders. During his time in the industry, he has coached, trained, competed with and sold multiple national champions. By bringing North American expertise to the European source Sorensen Stables continues to improve the European Horse buying experience.

 

Selection process

We look for horses that will make dreams come true. Nothing brings us more pride than seeing the accomplishments of our customers on the horses we found them. High performance is individual to each competitor and your equine partner must suit that riders needs and goals.

We have spent 20 years building our network of breeders, dealers and fellow competitors across Europe and the UK. When we aren’t riding our own horses, we are scouting shows and visiting breeders.

We start with a large volume of talent and have a process of research, videos, trials, and vetting. Horses are selected for their overall excellence in conformation, movement, jumping technique, and temperament.

 

Transition

Our goal is to position the horses to get from plane to prizes as fast as possible for their new owners.

All of the horses start from a different point depending on where they come from. Our goal is to accomplish as much of the transition as possible in Europe. This allows for less risk and speculation when the horses are tried and more value when they arrive ready to compete for the new owner.

THE HUNT | European Hunter Auction (thehunt2017.com) was proof of our concept with 8 of the 14 horses being Champion in Florida or California within 3 months from the day of purchase in Maastricht, The Netherlands.

The transition can range from things as simple as clipping and pulling the mane to more significant transitions like teeth, tack, shoeing, all the way to time-consuming and expensive transitions like putting weight on, training, re-training, or show experience.

 

Purchasing

On the first of every month, we will release a new collection of sport horses that will be available for purchase. Trials are always welcomed, complete vetting is available on request, and horses will be sold on a first come first serve basis.

They will be sold with a Bill of Sale contract and funds will be excepted by wire.

to those who don’t wait!”

Requests

We are experts at sourcing horses and matching the right horse to the right rider. Pinch Punch presents only a selection of the top horses we find each month. Our primary business is sourcing specific orders for our customers.

Additionally, we also help rider and horse together to build that partnership here in Europe training and showing before the new team heads home.
