Hanoverians for American hunter-jumper-market
The bay mare Belissaria turned out to become best-priced horse of the Verden Auction in May, sold at Euro 32,000 to the US.
The 60 riding horses were sold at averagely Euro 12,358. The foal collection was well-received by customers. Highest-priced representative of the foals born in 2016 was the colt Dolomite, purchased by a stallion raiser from North Rhine-Westphalia who invested Euro 22,000.
The Belissimo M/Embassy-daughter Belissaria (breeder: Carsten Cohrs, Scharnhorst – exhibitor: Lena-Maria & Kerstin Klose, Burgwedel) shined in the Niedersachsenhalle with auction no. 32. The multi-talented bay mare was sold at the telephone at Euro 32,000 as hunter-jumper to an approved trainer in the US. Less than eight weeks after the Hanoverian Graf Grannus-son Mindful had been nominated “Hunter of the Year” in the US, the same trainer also purchased Nice to Have by Now or Never/Mont du Cantal AA (breeder: Andre Vagts, Bargstedt – exhibitor: Lower Saxonian National State Stud Celle) at Euro 20,000.
Ferris by Fürst Romancier/Natiello xx (breeder: breeders' alliance Königs, Wallmoden – exhibitor: Tundi Andersson, Sjöbo/SWE) displays valuable dressage genes and above-average potential which turned the eagerly moving chestnut already into one of the candidates for the highest-priced dressage horse of the auction. He was sold at Euro 26,000 and will soon start his trip to France.
25 riding horses in total were sold to international customers. The biggest group of buyers came from Belgium (six), followed by France and the US (each five). Amazing also the number of eight horses, purchased by customers from North Rhine-Westphalia. The “Day of the Hanoverian” at the Horse Centre Schloss Wickrath at the beginning of April was a brilliant advertisement for the Verden auction.
Following the excellent result from last year when 70 foals were offered for sale, this year's foal collection was again well-received by the customers: “More foals were presented at the pre-selection. The breeders appreciate the fantastic sales opportunity,” said Auction Manager Jörg-Wihelm Wegener. The colts were particularly popular with the Dimaggio/Sir Donnerhall-son Dolomite awakening the greatest interest (breeder and exhibitor: Dieter Hilz, Spiegelau). He was sold at Euro 22,000 and will grow up with a stallion raiser in North Rhine-Westfalia. The 61 foals were sold at averagely Euro 5,743.
The next auction of the Hannoveraner Verband will be held on July 16.
