The final Hanoverian auction for 2019 took place in a good atmosphere inside the Niedersachsenhalle, where precisely 100 horses (of which 74 were dressage oriented) went on the auction block in November, and the average price of €16,510 was considered to be noteworthy. The top-priced horse, the four-year-old gelding Quedez (Quantensprung x Sirtaki), sold to Baden-Württemberg for €55,000 – well above the average price paid for the top-quality youngsters.
Among the group of showjumpers, the best price was paid for 2012-born Dahlien (Drosselklang II x Cheenook), bred and exhibited by Martina Zilinska from the Czech Republic. A customer from France paid €40,000 for this daughter of the 2001 Hanoverian stallion of the year.
