At the first Hanoverian auction of the year 2020, a show jumper jumped to the top price. In the Niedersachsenhalle, Darunee was the best paid horse, selling for 45,000 euro.
Already during the ten-day training period it became apparent that there was a great deal of interest in the 71 auction candidates. One show jumper led the statistics. The Hanoverian premium candidate Darunee (by Diacontinus x Comte (breeder: Ingo König, Großenwörden, exhibitor: Dagmar Scharfetter, Bremen)) has already been successful in tests for young show jumpers up to 1.20 meter. There was great jubilation among the buyers from Switzerland when the six-year-old was sold for 45,000 euro.
Fürstiano (by Fürst Nymphenburg x White Star (breeder and exhibitor: Heinrich Ehlers, Helmstedt)) was the most sought-after dressage horse. The five-year-old chestnut sold to Bavaria for 39,000 euro.
The 4-year old gelding Freetown (by Finest x Quaterback) sold for 36,000 euro, while jumpers Quite Right (by Quaid x Drosselklang II) and Quotation (by Quaid x Plurak) fetched 35,000 euro and 29,000 euro.
"I am delighted about this successful start to the year for the Hannoveraner Verband. Right from the beginning of the auction training, the great interest of our international clientele was already apparent," Wilken Treu concluded the first auction, which he led as new Managing Director of the Hannoveraner Verband.
A glance at the statistics shows that the price structure was stable. The average price improved by around 1,500 euro compared to the previous year. Thirty-six horses cost more than 15,000 euro. The export rate was a good 40 percent, 29 horses will leave Germany; from Hungary to the USA.
