Verden. Stars of tomorrow and friends for life can be found in the collection of the Verden Auction Online. 41 dressage and 33 show jumping horses are waiting for their new owners on April 17. The first bids can be submitted from April 11, before the bid-up begins six days later at 2 pm. The auction horses can be tried out immediately in Verden by telephone arrangement.
The collection of the Verden auction for riding horses on April 17 is colorful and diverse. From young hopefuls to mature companions for sport and leisure, the collection offers a suitable partner for all wishes. An offspring of the best quality and a special feature at first sight is the head number 1 of the 74-strong auction lot: Sympatico by Secret/Don Crusador (breeder: Dr. Elke Standeker, Stübing/AUT, exhibitor: Carsten Johansen, Bastad/SWE). An excellent amateur jumper for immediate competition use is Materrazi by Marius Claudius/Werenfels (breeder and exhibitor: Udo Irmisch, Dresden), who was successful up to medium (M) level with Karl Brocks Jr. and has the head number 8.
It will be possible to try out the horses, subject to the applicable spacing and hygiene rules, and the auction will once again take place online. At verdener-auktion-online.com the collection with photo and video material as well as veterinary documents can be viewed. The auction will take place in two parts. In part 1, head numbers 1 to 41 will be auctioned off, and in part 2 the virtual hammer will fall for head numbers 42 to 80. The final bid-up of the riding horses will begin at 2 p.m. on April 17.
As usual, the horses will be presented to interested customers via livestream on various dates. On Saturday, April 10, the kick-off presentation will take place. The show jumpers will start at 10 am, followed by the dressage horses at 2 pm. As a well-known Grand Prix rider, trainer and popular Verden auction customer, Markus Hermes will provide live commentary on the auction horses. On the following Wednesday, April 14, the horses will also be presented live in two groups: 2 pm the show jumpers and 5 pm the dressage horses, then with a live commentary by Olympic rider Heike Kemmer. Finally, selected horses will be shown in free jumping on Friday, April 16, starting at 10 am.
