The Holstein autumn event in Elmshorn begins tomorrow, Friday, November 4, at 11:00 a.m. CET. The stage is set, the ,elite riding horses are in top form and the stallions registered for the saddle licensing and the short assessment test are in their stables.
It will open with evaluating on hard ground, followed by free jumping and the presentation of the stallions under the rider. Finally, at 5:00 p.m., the auction candidates will present themselves to the public and of course they can still be ridden for a test afterwards.
On Saturday, the three-year-old stallions will open the show and present themselves under saddle. In addition, the elite riding horses can still be tried out in the morning. The excitement heats up in the afternoon when the licensing decisions are announced and the hybrid auction begins at 5:00 p.m., with bidding on site in the Fritz-Thiedemann-Halle, over the telephone, as well as online after prior registration at www.holsteiner.auction.
The hybrid auction lives up to its elite title, because from three-year-old horses with pedigree potential for a successful future, to athletes with early tournament experience, to the stallions, nothing is left to be desired in the horses of the collection. For example, #124, La Douce (Million Dollar x Connor), from the direct dam line of Laura Kraut's world champion Ceremony. The four-year-old mare has already won classes up to 1m10 and has been awarded a State premium. Or catalog #124, Quilino (Quibery xCayado), whose grandmother and great-grandmother produced numerous internationally successful showjumpers, such as Glock's Cognac Champlanc (Gerco Schröder/NED), H&M Chilli Willi (Nicola Philippaerts/BEL), or Camiro (Toni Andre Hansen/NOR). Catalog #109 is also interesting, Casacano E (Cascadello I x Cancara), while three-year-old Vitalis x De Niro son Valentino has great potential for the dressage arena.
All information about the horses can be found at holsteiner.auction. Felix Flinzer (+49 162 3493942) will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the auction and the offers. Appointments for trial riding and viewing are still possible until the start of the auction.
