San Leander P sold for 70,000€ to the Netherlands

68 Hanoverians trotted into the Verden auction ring at midsummery temperatures. San Leander P. became top-price horse. The five-year-old super sports youngster changed at Euro 70,000 to the Netherlands.

Customers invested averagely Euro 14,708.95 for the young riding horses – almost Euro 3,000 more than last year. A customer from the Iran was deeply impressed by the high quality: He purchased 17 Hanoverian horses.

San Leander P by San Amour I/Lanciano (breeder: Horst Pilgui, Barwedel – exhibitor: ZG Pilgui, Barwedel) was the personal tip of the collection right from the very beginning of the auction training. Internationally successful dressage riders travelled to Verden in the last 13 days to inspect and to sight the promising youngster. The mature gelding has everything successful dressage horses require: a gorgeous conformation, true to type, powerful movement and a super, well-tempered character. Besides, he demonstrated how safely he already accomplishes the exercises during each of his presentations in the Niedersachsenhalle. Following an exciting bidding duel, a customer from the Netherlands purchased San Leander P as futurity prospect for his daughter.

“It was a deliberate decision of the breeder to present the horse at the Summer Auction, knowing well that he would belong to the best ones of the collection. I am happy that we have been able to sell this exceptional horse here that well,” Auction Manager Joerg-Wilhelm Wegener summarized. Catalogue number 27 was also sold at a top price: The gavel went down at Euro 34,000 for Romeo von Nymphenburg by Royal Classic/Wolkenstein II (breeder: Hans-Heinrich Plate, Otterndorf – exhibitor: Helmut Freiherr v. Fircks, Munich) for Argentinian customers.

And the show jumping horses were as popular: Following an exciting bidding duel, Casarella Nobilé by Calido/Rabino (breeder: Juergen Meyer, Barsinghausen-Stemmen – exhibitor: Jeanine Pagel, Martfeld-Hustedt) was sold at Euro 40,000 to a new customer from Great Britain.

27 youngster will stay in Germany, 40 were purchased by foreign customers. A customer from the Iran bought a staggering number of horses: The committed purchaser will take 17 Hanoverians home with the purpose to launch a new Hanoverian training centre. “The sun did not only shine for Verden today, this was also a brilliant and shiny auction. There was an incredible customer interest, and we obtained excellent prices for the high-quality horses of our exhibitors,” Jörg-Wilhelm Wegener concluded.

Next auction highlight in Verden will be the Elite Foal and Broodamare Auction with 152 outstanding foals and 10 thoroughly selected broodmares on August 16.
