Verden. At the first auction of the year, a show jumper jumped to the top price. In the Niedersachsenhalle, Darunee was the best-paid horse for 45,000 Euros. On average, 17,203 Euros had to be invested for a Hannoveraner talent.
Already during the ten-day training period, it became apparent that there was a great deal of interest in the 71 auction candidates. One showjumper led the statistics. The Hannoveraner premium candidate Darunee by Diacontinus/Comte (breeder: Ingo König, Großenwörden, exhibitor: Dagmar Scharfetter, Bremen) has already been successful in tests for young show jumpers up to 1.20 meter. There was great jubilation among the buyers from Switzerland when the six-year-old was sold for 45,000 Euros.
Fürstiano by Fürst Nymphenburg/White Star (breeder and exhibitor: Heinrich Ehlers, Helmstedt) was the most sought-after dressage horse to leave the Niedersachsenhalle with seven-league boots. Equipped with impressive basic gaits, the five-year-old chestnut marched from the auction ring towards Bavaria for 39,000 Euros.
"I am delighted about this successful start to the year for the Hannoveraner Verband. Right from the beginning of the auction training, the great interest of our international clientele was already apparent," Wilken Treu concluded the first auction, which he led as Managing Director of the Hannoveraner Verband. A glance at the statistics shows that the price structure was stable. The average price has improved by around 1,500 Euros compared to the previous year, it was achieved without "outliers". 36 horses cost more than 15,000 Euros. The export rate was a good 40 percent, 29 horses will leave Germany and advertise the Verden Auctions from Hungary to the USA.
