All horses in the collection are either home bred or reared at Van Olst Horses in Den Hout, The Netherlands.
Van Olst prides itself in having a very high standard when it comes to breeding and rearing dressage stock. The Van Olst Sales collection boasts young prospects which have been hand picked based on their talent, gaits, health and character.
This is a very unique opportunity to buy a young dressage star who has been given the best start in life by being professionally managed from birth to being saddle broken. The beautiful Van Olst Sales' collection includes horses aged 3 to 5 with the majority being green 3-year olds who have just started their career under saddle.
Highlights in the collection:
The 3-year old bay gelding Hotshot is by Lord Leatherdale out of Goethe x Rheinblick dam and is an absolute highlight in the 2015 Van Olst Sales collection. This drop dead gorgeous son of Lord Leatherdale is blessed with a good size, beautiful model, much expression and a super character. He has an extraordinary way of moving and has a big future ahead of him. This one has got it all!
This 3-year old bay gelding is by Negro out of an Akribori x Onyx dam. This modern sport horse has a wonderful conformation and is very appealing to the eye. His great disposition and strong way of moving make him a lovely youngster with much potential for the future. He's gorgeous and talented!
The 3-year old dark bay gelding Hermes is by the preferent sire Negro, who also produced Olympic champion Valegro, and out of a Don Schufro x Partout dam. He descends from the Caramels dam line which has produced many successful Grand Prix horses such as Nadine (Hans Peter Minderhoud) and Karolus van Wittenstein (Patrick van der Meer). All these horses have one thing in common: cadence. Hermes has a clear talent and suits a rider who thinks for the long term: Grand Prix level!
