Verden Auction in March (VIDEO)

The second Hanoverian sales event of the year will be held soon. Date of the Verden auction is March 26 with the collection featuring 92 riding horses. It is complemented by an attractive selection of foals. It is the first time that the official opening presentation will be on Saturday and not, as in the past, on Sunday before the auction.

The auction training period starts on March 14. There will be a novelty in the training schedule when it comes to the opening presentation. It will be staged on Saturday, March 19, as of 10.00 am. As is appropriate for an opening presentation, the horses will be shown in dressage, show jumping and pleasure riding sequences, followed by the opportunity to ride and test the horses. This part of the auction schedule was always held on Sunday in the past. Sunday will now be reserved to the individual training of the auction horses, starting as of 10.00 am, with customers and exhibitors being invited to attend.

Santiago will be godfather of this March Auction. He is a prime example for former auction horses, starting their careers in Verden. With one victory achieved in Frankfurt, he continues the successful series of horses such as Elvis VA, Wahajama Unicef and Bonaparte who once had won the popular prize for Hanover to then successfully start their international career.

As was the case with the Verden auction in January, this collection will again feature horses for all demands. From high-quality pleasure horses to extraordinary competition horses – the collection meets all requirements. 59 dressage and 33 show jumping horses are represented. Some of them showed qualities for both disciplines during the video and photo shooting. Apart from these features, some of the auction horses were already successfully shown at competitions, providing customers the fantastic opportunity to immediately start into the outdoor season. Particularly customers from abroad appreciate this fact as it provides a sense of orientation and security when choosing their perfect match.

The foals will be selected as of March 5. The collection including pedigrees, photos and videos will be available on the Internet as of March 14. The auction brochure of foals will be available as of Friday, March 18 with the auction office.

The foals will be presented on Saturday, March 26, as of 10.30 am in the Niedersachsenhalle and put up for auction after the auction of riding horses as of approx. 6.30 pm. The riding horse auction will start as of 3.00 pm
