The last online Westfalian foal auction in 2022 came to an end in the final bid-up. For an average price of €5,875, 20 riding horse foals and two pony foals found a new owner. Two foals with a pedigree predispositioned for dressage particularly impressed the customers.

Thirty-four representatives of the 2022 vintage were for sale in this online auction, which saw a total turnover of €129,250 and 65% of the foals changing hands. International clients invested an average of €5,875 to secure their young prospects for dressage and showjumping, with eight who will be starting their careers outside Germany.
Among the foals with a pedigree predispositioned for dressage, both a colt and a filly achieved the highest price of €8,250. With head number 14, Tamino – a son of Taurus from the breeding farm of Antonius Richter from Hopsten – particularly appealed to the customers. He had bred his Dancier daughter Donna Emma to the premium stallion of the Westfalian Main Licensing in 2019. A customer from the United Arab Emirates had the most patience breath in the bid-up and purchased the bay colt.

The dam of this mare has a full brother who was successful in advanced level dressage competitions, and customers from Germany can look forward to a successful future with this bay filly...
