Next Sunday, May 1, it's worth making the trip to Elmshorn or tuning in live on ClipMyHorse.TV. because from 11:00 a.m. the three- to six-year-old sires of the Holsteiner Verband Hengsthaltungs GmbH will present themselves live to the breeders.
"For the three-year-olds, it will be the only major appearance in front of spectators since their licensing, and under saddle," announced managing director Sebastian Rohde. For instance, Nohoval (Nixon), Update (United Way), and Zuccarello (Zuccero), according to their age, will present themselves in the basic gaits.
Over a short course, the four- to six-year-old jumping stallions will be shown, including the winner of the short assessment test, Vigago (Vigo d'Arsouilles); the Dominator son Daikon; or his box neighbor Camino Royal (Clarimo). They are all in their fourth year and looking forward to their first tournament appearances.
And then there are the more experienced stallions. Comme il Faut, reigning state champion, outstanding sports test winner and recently winner of an elementary level showjumping ability test. The spectators can look forward to seeing him, as well as Corfu de la Vie (Cumano); the Kannan son Keaton; or the former champion stallion Cahil (Cornet Obolensky.
"I'm looking forward to the presentation of the young stallions," said Sebastian Rohde, who will be accompanied by Karsten Huck in his commentary. “Actually, we had planned the entire event on Herbert-Blöcker-Platz. Unfortunately, it currently looks like the weather wants to put a spanner in the works. Whether in the hall or on the field, my entire team and I are really looking forward to showing the stallions in public,."
At the end of the event, there is another highlight: After more than 40 years of activity, the outgoing managing director, Norbert Boley, will say goodbye to his well-deserved retirement.
It starts on Sunday, May 1, at 11:00 a.m. and, as always, the guests can look forward to a prize draw for three free coverings.
