Mury Marais Auction – A Passion for the Sport!

For decades, Catherine de Buyl‘s name has been associated with horse insurance as well as with the Mury Marais stud. A discreet figure in the business, she has succeeded where many have tried. For more than two decades, she has managed to supply her rider Patrick McEntee only with horses from her own stud, enabling him to compete on the international circuit without interruption.

Catherine de Buyl and her late husband are true horse lovers and amateur riders and decided many years ago to start breeding. They immediately understood that in order to breed, they had to aim for the top level. That year, Léon Melchior decided to sell the empty mares from his breeding operation.

Advised by François Mathy, the couple set their sights on Angélique Z and Ferdica Z. This is how the strains of Lingot Mury Marais Z, alias L’espoir Z and Johan du Mury Marais began breeding. Shortly afterwards, Catherine de Buyl spotted a certain four-year-old Legato at a young horse show, who became Mario Deslaurier’s Olympic mount. Guido Bruyninx, who at the time was riding the horses of the kennel, found his mother, the famous Zolonka, who left Sherry and Ever to the Mury Marais!

During decades of breeding, these enthusiasts have cultivated their stock with passion, constantly keeping the best mares, staying with a limited number … and continuing to acquire new stock with one motivation: the sport!

This is also the strength of this breeding where each of the mares has been tested in sport, often returning to breeding as soon as they have shown their qualities to perpetuate the best in-house strains. In recent years, Catherine de Buyl has allowed herself to cover more mares but after reflection and against her will, she has decided to let some of her jewels go because her infrastructure does not allow her to expand her breeding. This is how the idea of the Mury Marais Auction was born. A unique opportunity to acquire unique stocks that have been worked for years with passion and kindness with the sole aim of producing top level horses!
