Bonjour became the price highlight of the 2019 Horses and Dreams Online Auction which concluded on Sunday 5 May 2019.
For the second, consecutive year Ullrich Kasselmann and Paul Schockemöhle of PSI organized this mutual online auction during the Horses & Dreams international competition in Hagen.
The bidding process lasted for two weeks and concluded on 5 May. The dressage collection included 10 talented youngsters.
Isabell Werth's long-time sponsor Madeleine Winter-Schulze paid 159,000 euro for the top seller of the auction, the 6-year old Hanoverian gelding Bonjour (by Benicio x Lauries Crusador xx x Raphael).
The second most expensive horse was the 3-year old Oldenburg stallion Versaille (by Vivaldi x Sir Donnerhall). The chestnut stallion caught the attention of long-term clients of Francois Kasselmann from Australia, John Taylor and Kylie Riddell, who paid 154,000 euro for him. Versaille's dam, Toskira is a former P.S.I. Auction highlight and currently in training with the RS2 Dressage Center. Grand-dam Toska R has also produced the stallion Don Davidoff, the 2002 Young Dressage Horse World Champion and National Champion. The three-year-old Versaille is destined to write his own history in the dressage arena.
The third best selling horse was the 4-year old Oldenburg gelding Diamant de la Bretagne (by Don Noblesse x Rubinstein) which will move to Charlotte Haid-Bondergaard's yard in Sweden for 87,500 euro. Charlotte combined her start in the CDI4* at Horses & Dreams meets France with a visit to the Auction stables and secured Diamant de la Bretagne.
This year’s Horses & Dreams Online Auction attracted a number of big names and professional riders looking for their future prospects. For instance, German Grand Prix dressage rider Markus Gribbe, who is now based in California, secured a future horse via the auction.
Moving to America is the 4-year old Oldenburg gelding Jules Verne (by Jazzman x Fidermark) for 60,000 euro. Australians purchased the 4-year old Hanoverian gelding Fabuleux (by Furst Romancier x Contendros Bube) for 58,000 euro.
Chinese buyers scored two horses: the 4-year old Hanoverian Vague du Succès (by Vivaldi x Hotline) for 38,500 euro and the 5-year old Oldenburg gelding Bonaparte (by Beradini x Pik Pavarotti) for 21,500 euro.
Three horses remain in Germany and sold to new clients. Georgette (by Gorbatschow x Diamond Hit) sold for 38,000 euro, Barthez (by Bretton Woods x Don Schufro) for 31,500 euro and D'Artagnan (by De Niro x Sandro Hit) for 29,500 euro.
