Youhorse.auction continues to grow. The world-wide demand for showjumping horses is extremely high and this resulted in many purchases on Tuesday-night 1 June. For 45,000 euro the 5-yr-old Lady Obolensky (Cornet Obolensky x Lasino) set the auction record. The grey mare, who will move to Belgium, earned last year’s highest score at the KWPN mare inspection in IJsselmuiden.
This time Mario Everse and Alan Waldman had their auction horses sold to countries such as Canada, USA, Mexico, the United Arab Emirates, Bulgary, Romania, Poland, Denmark, Finland, Great Britain and the Netherlands. Little Dance (Stakkato Gold) was knocked down for 19,000 euro. For 18,000 euro each, Nardilavasca Keizersberg (Comme il Faut), Cornet’s Blue JKH Z (Cornet Obolensky) and Diabeau Z (Diamant de Plaisir) also found new owners.
“We can look back at a good auction. We saw that there is a high demand for this kind of horses and that motivates us to continue with this format. There is a breeding auction planned for this summer, but we will offer less foals than we did last year. We consider ourselves genuine sportmen and auctioning youngsters whose showjumping ability can be shown suits us better. You know how they jump, they have been X-rayed and their height is known. In short, far more information than when you sell a foal. That little bit of security is appreciated by our clients.”
Youhorse.auction will hold an auction every first Tuesday of the month and that means that the next auction (the 12th edition) will take place from Saturday 3 to Tuesday 6 July. Owners and breeders can offer the 2-yr-old and older showjumping horses for the selection days on Monday 21 and Tuesday 22 June. That is also when the photos and videos are handled for the online presentation of the auction horses. Enter via www.youhorse.auction.
