For the 61st Westphalian Elite Auction for Spring 2021, the Westfälisches Pferdestammbuch e.V. presents a highly interesting collection of dressage and show jumping horses. The catalogue of 36 dressage and 19 showjumping horses is completed by three talented riding ponies. In addition to young riding horses that are at the very beginning of a promising career, the collection includes horses that are experienced in competitions. Two candidates of the dressage lot have already been placed up to advanced level.

Due to the current EHV-1 and coronavirus situation, the auction will be held online. At onlineauction.westfalenpferde.de the collection with complete pedigrees, photos and videos is available for viewing. Registered users also have access to x-ray pictures and a veterinary report. Due to the outbreak of the Equine Herpes Virus, the training time of the auction horses at the Westfälisches Pferdezentrum will be shortened. The horses are expected to be stabled in Münster-Handorf on April 1. The training of the horses can be watched from April 2. A test ride is also possible from April 2-10 after prior consultation with the auciton sales team. Training videos of the horses will be produced and subsequently published online, and bids can be submitted from April 8. The auction has been separated into dressage and showjumping lots with BidUP of the dressage horses starting on Sunday, April 11 at 2:00 pm, immediately followed by the auction of showjumpers.

This year, the title of the auction brochure is decorated by the Fürstenball/Riccio daughter Frau Holle. The bay mare, who comes from the successful breeding of the Rawert family, changed hands at the Westfalian Elite Auction 2015. Under the saddle of the young rider Jana Schrödter, the mare has already collected numerous successes in the dressage ring. Another Westphalian auction horse, Florenz A, has moved in with the Schödter family. They purchased the Fürstenball son bred by Heinrich Aarnink, Nordhorn, at a Westfalian Youngster Auction earlier in 2021.
