It was agreed that the quality of the Hanoverian horses presented at the showjumping stallion licensing in Verden had not seen for a long time. In total, nine premiums were awarded for the outstanding talents, with 27 out of the 44 young stallions receiving a positive result.

The good impression was confirmed on the first day during the warm-up free jumping and also on the final day. Modern, athletic, and cleverly jumping stallions characterised the collection .
The Celle State Stud was also in a buying mood, securing a total of three highly talented showjumping stallions. The first in the top trio was a bay by Aganix du Seigneur Z x Eldorado van de Zeshoek (bred by Antonius Schulze-Averdiek, Rosendahl), who opened the stallion sales, and sold for €175,000. The third dam of the stallion is also the dam of Marcus Ehning’s world-class horse Cornado NRW.
The auction continued with a very modern grey stallion by Cornet’s Pleasure VDL x Vagabond de la Pomme (bred and exhibited by Zuchthof Dree Boeken KG, Heidesee). He not only impressed over the fence, but also has three successful generations of international show jumping on his dam’s side. He went to Celle for €108,000.
The last stallion for the state stud was an athletic bay by Taloubet Z x Chacco-Blue (bred by Johannes zur Lage, Bersenbrück), who impressed with his power and dynamism. He changed hands for €165,000 in co-operation with a long term Canadian partner of the State Stud Celle... To read the complete article you need to be a subscriber
