With a week's delay, the talented young sport horses at the 2023 Hanoverian Winter Auction in Verden auction found new owners. The auction moved from an online format to a live event in the Niedersachsenhalle due to a system error in the online auction bidding platform, which affected auctions across Germany.
Where the online bids stopped last Saturday, the bidders in the Niedersachsenhalle and on the phone continued.
The highest bid in this January auction was for show jumper Deltina (by Diacontinus x Carry Gold), bred by Heinrich and Arne Clüver and owned by Gestüt Eichenhain. She sold for 50,000 euro.
The most expensive dressage was the 4-year old Erna Emilia (by Emilio Sanchez x Dancier - breeder and owner: Carsten Nancken). A French top dressage rider bought the horse for 38,000 euro.
Ten further horses sold to France! Dallas (by Don Nobless) sold for 37,000 euro, Beluga (by Borsalino x Quaterback) for 25,500 euro, For You (by Floris Prince x Bergamon) for 24,000 euro, TS Royal Hit (by Royal Side S x Sandro Hit) for 21,000 euro, amongst others.
Delon (by Don Frederic x Furst Nymphenburg) moves to Australia for 26,500 euro. Easy Dancer (by Escamillo x Donnerhall) goes to the U.S.A. for 26,000 euro.
A Swiss customer bought Idefix SF (by Ibiza x Furstenball) for 29,500 euro.
Sixty-three young horses were part of the Verden auction in January, which ended with an average price of 20,317 euro. Twenty-seven quality youngsters will leave Germany.
