Twenty young future competition hopes for dressage and jumping bred and produced by Hof Kasselmann and Stable Paul Schockemöhle were auctioned off during the evening of Friday, June 17. The most expensive lot was a son of Chac Boy: Carepetit PS was worth 285,000 Euros to his new owners. The half-brother of the 1m50 successful Chaccare and the 1m45 experienced horses Lintina and Chafleur was practically born to jump.
The most popular dressage offspring was a son of Vitalis, Valerioll, who was the second horse to enter the auction floor in the idyllic garden arena of the Kasselmann family. The close relationship to the Nürnberger Burg-Pokal winner and Junior European Champion QC Flamboyant OLD suggests a promising future for Valerioll. This was worth a proud €267,000 to his new owners from Great Britain
Chactazio PS attracted the attention of several buyers, who fought for the winning bid until the very end. In the end, the young Chac Boy stallion was knocked down to Denmark for €225,000. Paul Schockemöhle was pleased to see the success and the idea of his breeding confirmed: "Many horses come from very proven lines and that is how we want to continue."
Of the 20 young horses sold, some will start their journey abroad: Customers from the USA, Denmark, Sweden, Portugal, Switzerland, the Netherlands or Korea invested in the high-quality collection. In total, the Hybrid Auction, which was held during the Youth Nations Cup tournament Future Champions, achieved a turnover of €2,456,000. The international clientele spent €1,252,000 for the 10 dressage horses, while the 10 jumpers fetched a total of €1,204,000.
The warm summer weather attracted a large number of interested buyers to the garden of the Kasselmann family, where guests could enjoy the famous hospitality of the owners. Ullrich Kasselmann was very satisfied with the result: "The Future Champions event means that we have the customers on site who are looking for horses and we wanted to take advantage of that. The atmosphere we created here was really unique. That we were still able to show our three-year-old dressage horses under saddle is extraordinary."
