I bought Adventure De Kannan ( aka Addy) from Dawn in 2004 after searching for my dream horse for 6 months.  I'd been to view all sorts and nothing lived up to the adverts.  It was so refreshing to meet Dawn who was totally honest about what her horses had done or not done.

After trying Addy a couple of times I decided to take the plunge and buy him.I can honestly say from the time Dawn delivered him to this day he has never put a foot wrong either at home or when we're out and about.He took me from never having jumped a track or xc course to jumping1.20m and competing in eventing.

Then while I was pregnant, to keep him ticking over, Trevor Breen took over the ride.The pair of them have gone from strength to strength.In 2009 Addy won the Hickstead Speed Derby and in 2010/2011 as well as winning and being placed in international Grand Prixs he has been on 3 successful Irish Nations Cup teams.

Whenever I get the chance I still get on him and pop him round a 90cm or do a dressage test on him and he still behaves like a total gentleman with me.

My true horse of a lifetime!!  Thanks Dawn! x


I have bought 4 horses from Dawn over the last 4 years, and they are all proving to be superstar eventer’s and show jumpers. In January 2007 I bought, Velosity, Wii Limbo and What a Night. What a night competed up to Novice eventing as a 6yo, placed in the top 10 at nearly all of them, he has now been sold onto a hunt home, as he is a fantastic hunter. Velosity and Wii Limbo are currently 2 of my top horses, now with half share owners in them, Velosity is competing at 2* level and is on the Equine pathway for potential London Olympic Prospects, and Wii Limbo is a shining star at intermediate level. Both horses have the brain, conformation and ability to make 4* event horses, and show a very bright future. They have also shown huge potential as show jumpers, competing at the recent Addington pro/am show, winning £1300 between them, competing upto 1.25m, they will be aiming for 1.30/1.35m at the end of the year. Our latest purchase is Luca, bought for me by a syndicate of 5 people, he has amazing movement and jump and will be aiming to start his eventing career in 2011. Dawn and her contacts have a fantastic eye for a horse, as I have bought 4 out of the 6 horses I have tried. I would always go back to them looking for another young horse.



Thanks for finding me two super horses who are not only doing well in dressage but who are so easy to do and look after on the yard.

Comanche Wodan (stable name God) has had a great record throughout his career so far. In the young dressage horse classes he qualified for each age group championship and now aged ten he is working at Grand Prix.

This year he has won Regional Winter Championship at Advanced Medium and in the Summer Regional Championship he was 2nd at PSG and Champion at Inter 1, he has also qualified for the Inter 2 gaining a wild card after his performance at Hartpury Premier League.

He has been a super horse to train and has huge potential to do Grand Prix.

Comanche Thopan (stable name Pancake) has been a more tricky horse to train but has masses of ability and skill which is starting to come through, he has won his first Inter 2 and gaining a second in his first Grand Prix which is a good achievement. His athletic ability has been commented on by other trainers and judges so we are very excited about him doing Grand Prix next session and qualifying through.


I have bought two fabulous horses from Dawn and Donny Tiamo, a 6-year-old Dutch warmblood by Flemmingh and Blixem a 3-year-old Stallion by Samba Hit ii. Tiamo has been a total gem, he taught me everything and we formed a great partnership.  Every year we managed to qualify for the regionals and were always at the top end of the score board! Tiamo was also chosen to represent England at the BYRDS Home International in 2009 and we were part of the North-West team at the Under 25's at Sheepgate in 2008. I couldn't have wished for a better horse, who was also known as the "one with the fabulous walk" which often scored 9s!

The newest addition, Blixem,is certainly one in a million! Love him to bits! I have been told by international and national dressage trainers that he will certainly make Grand Prix and that he is a very talented horse. When I saw him advertised I knew that no matter what I had to have him - and having bought from Dawn and Donny there was no question about it that he would turn into a superstar! This year we are hoping to contend in the young horse classes and compete at some Novice and elementary classes.

I would absolutely recommend Dawn and Donny and for any future purchases I wouldn't consider going any where else! So thank you both for finding me two fabulous horses.


Sports Horse Continental  ‘AMAZING’

We have bought and sold many horses off  Dawn & Donny over the years in fact to many to mention.  I have bought both my own personal horses and horses to produce and sell on from them and every one has been exactly what they said it was, all proving to be talented horses.  

There has never been a time that you aren’t welcomed and the service and helpfulness is 100% meaning if they haven’t had in what we was looking for the have gone out and found it for us.

Pictured here are just a few of  the horses that we have got from Dawn &Donny, and are now all out now competing BSJA some up to 1.20 - 1.30m level.

We would absolutely recommend Dawn and Donny to anyone looking for a quality horse at a realistic price, and for any future purchases we wouldn't consider going any where else!


Just want to thank you both for being very honest people with amazing horses for sale.

We have bought four horses from Dawn and Donny over the past two years. Both of the 5yr olds were selected for the World Class Equine Pathway. Woodstock was 5th in the 5yr old Final at the Welsh Masters and is showing fantastic potential. Spudley was sold on to an event yard where he went on to qualify for the prestigious Burghley Young Event Horse Final 2011. We also bought two other young horses both are 4yr olds now and are showing great talent.


Dawn and Donny offer good quality horses at reasonable prices, they were very honest and offered a fantastic service. Since meeting them we have become great friends and we would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a young horse.

Well 5 years on not bad just getting round to this.

CAM VIGO - introduced to us by Dawn and Donnie as CUDDLES.

We had a fantastic phone call when we were in Italy to say you had found the horse for us.

Well what can I say - Vigo has been a star over the last 5 years everything you told us and more. When he arrived from Holland very green but very willing I started my training with him as canter was an issue. Very quickly I took him out at BD Prelim and he won his 1st class and then quickly progressed onto novice. At this level he consistently scored 70% and more and qualified for the regionals. It was at this point we got involved in team dressage with BD South West and represented them each year at Novice, Elementary and Medium at both their Senior Inter Regional Team competition and the 'Home International'.

the last 2 years he has qualified for the Pet Plan National Finals at Hartpury at Elementary and this year both Elementary and Medium next year we plan for Medium and Advanced Medium - he loves to show off with fabulous flying changes all the jockey needs to do now is keep up!!!!!!

Above all the amazing competition results Vigo has the most superb temperament loves to KISS and CUDDLE and just be part of our life.

Dawn and Donny we can't thank you enough for this fabulous find and your superb service and friendship and have enjoyed recommending you to lots of others and when the time comes it will be you guys that need to find CUDDLES MK 2.

Hi Dawn and Donny do you remember the little Sandro Hit colt we bought from you?


He has recently come 5th in the Shearwater Potential International dressage horse class and qualified for the final of the Badminton young dressage horse class!

What an amazing, beautiful horse. Bought as a 4year old for my then 16 year old daughter. 16.2 bay mare - they said she was stunning and she is. They said she could jump and was brave and they were so right. Fabulous jumping horse - doing fantastic at Bsja - brave and looks after my daughter. Great temprament - love her to bits. Donny and Dawn have stayed interested in her and encouraged my daughter at Bsja shows - what more could you ask for?

“It has been 6 weeks since I bought my KWPN gelding, Aspect, from Dawn & Donny at Sports Horse Continental and I’m so thoroughly delighted that I had to write and let you know.  Our dressage partnership is really coming together and I’m looking forward to lots of fun (and wins!) with him in the years to come.  Aspect is such a genuine, elastic, well bred young horse, the type that we all know some dealers would import, ‘tart up’ and charge a five figure price tag for.  I cannot thank you enough for showing him to me with no fancy frills and for being so straightforward, pleasant and honest to deal with.  You clearly have a good eye for super horses; I’ve got a brilliant, quality horse at a sensible price! I couldn’t be happier and feel so lucky to have found Sports Horse Continental.  Thanks again.  We will keep you posted on his career!” –Carolyn Blunt & Aspect


Thanks again


All the horses I have bought from sports horse continental have all been quality, good movers and good jumpers. I know I can ask them to find me exactly what am looking for. Consult Z was bought at the beginning of 2010 he finished his first eventing season with a double clear at novice level and I have high hopes for him.

Beowulf a stunning 5yr old warmblood gelding by the famous Flemmingh was my first purchase from Dawn and Donny just over 12 months ago. He is the most fantastic horse and has been a pleasure from the day I brought him home. Such a cheeky chappy who loves to please. In just 1 yr he has successfully competed BD with consistent scores of 68-75%, he has represented the Snrnorth west team at the Inter Regional Competition at Bedfordshire and has recently been selected to representEngland in the Home International competition in October.

As well as dressage “Zander” loves to jump, the highlight being at Bramham earlier this yr in the 5yr old class were he finished just outside the top 10, he has successfully evented over the last 2 months and will embark on his full eventing career in 2012.

I cannot recommend Dawn and Donny enough, their friendly professional approach makes purchasing horses that much easier, with such quality breeding lines I would recommend SHC continental everytime. Thank you SHC for finding me my dream horse and here’s too many more purchases.

I first met Dawn and Donny in 2011 when I bought my beautiful mare Dushi, she has been a dream come true to me. An elite bred horse that I always dreamt of owning but never thought for a minute I could afford to buy.

I bought Dushi rising 3 and I produced her slowly by myself on the flat and started her jumping career late 2012, she is proving bold and unlimited amounts of scope as both Dawn and Donny assured me back when I bought her and first saw her free school!! I registered her with the BSJA last year and we have taken it slowly up the ranks now jumping happily around the 1.15s.

I am eternally grateful to team janciauskas, they have paid us so much interest and followed our progress, helping wherever possible and its nice to know that even though they deal with so many horses week in week out that they still remember each horse they sell and where they sold them to ect... its not just a business to them its more of a passion...

I have kept in touch with both Dawn and Donny visiting as often as possible for training and I will ALWAYS recommend people to go see what they have in, three people I know personally bought their horses from sports horse continental and also have said they would always go back and are over the moon with the horses they have bought.

Recently we were back on the market for yet another young horse... and we bought Valencia Z who is also proving just as talented with a wonderful temprement.

I wish I could have them all!!

Lovely people and highly recommended any day!!

Thank You Team Janciauskas :-)

Looking for your next horse that's going to have all the ingrediants of a potential star is never an easy thing to find, but when I first started riding Challenge I thought he had the type, temperament and scope to be a really usefull horse. It was only after speaking with Dawn and Donny at  Scope that I realised  that they had found him, and imported him. I can strongly recommend anyone who is looking for their next potential star to give sporthorse continental a try, they are very easy people to deal with and know what current bloodlines are  needed for the makings of a good quality horse with size temperament and ability to go on and have the makings of a star.


   Having recently gone with a friend of mine to look for a youngster for her,  there was a super selection of horses to try and she bought a super 3yr old who has been a pleasure to deal with.

I first met Dawn and Donny in 2009 when I brought our first horse off them. He was exactly what I wanted and just how they described. Once I sold him I went straight back to her and brought a top 3 year old, which is now my top horse. I now only go to Dawn and Donny as have been else where and not received the same service as I got at Continental sport horses. Dawn and Donny are not only a great contact to have, they have become great friends.

We bought our first horse from Dawn and Donny in September 2012. Disiro K was a 16h 4 year old gelding, by Casiro x Cassini I x No Ski. He was exactly what we'd been looking for; a well mannered, talented and 'pretty' gelding, and our aim was to produce and eventually sell him. By March 2013 he had gone from being just broken to jumping round Newcomers  with ease. In April 2013 he was sold, and is now owned by Sable Geisler, a top Canadian young rider trained by Clayton Fredricks, who is aiming at the 2016 Rio Olympics. We could not have asked for anything more from Dawn and Donny who were completely honest and sold me the perfect horse.

In late April 2013 we spotted another horse on the Sports Horse Continental YouTube page, a 3yr old Mare by Cornet Stern x Cornet Obolensky x Carthago, and decided she was the perfect horse for our next challenge. Since then we have backed and broken her, she is riding away nicely and has jumped a few small fences, showing as much potential under saddle as she did loose. We are once again extremely pleased with the service we received from Dawn and Donny, and will definitely return next time we are looking for a talented, reasonably priced young horse who is sold in complete honesty. Thank you Dawn and Donny!
