Vanellope danced to the top

A filly upstaged the riding horses at the Verden Auction in May: Vanellope was sold at Euro 62,000 whereas the 36 riding horses achieved an average auction sales price of Euro 15,361.


The Vitalis/Don Romantic-daughter Vanellope (breeder and exhibitor: Gerda Stein, Westerende) was considered favourite for the highest price. The eagerly moving chestnut mare became a star at the photo and video shooting. Each bid was celebrated during the thrilling auction until auctioneer Bernd Hickert finally accepted the bid of Euro 62,000 of a Lower Saxonian raiser. The foals were sold at averagely Euro 6,975.


The collection of riding horses featured a variety of horses for the different demands. Monsieur Lazhar by Metall/Weltruhm (breeder and exhibitor: Hedy Lynen, Unna) became top-priced dressage horse. The excellently to ride bay horse was sold at Euro 30,000 to France. Sailor Moon by Stolzenberg/Graf Grannus (breeder and exhibitor: Heinrich Beutner, Meinersen) turned out to be the best-priced jumper. A well-known Canadian show jumping rider invested Euro 27,000 in the bay horse out of the dam line of the Celle state stud stallion Perigueux.


Hanoverian horses are popular all over the world. 20 of the 36 horses will leave Germany. Eight of them will travel to the US, each three to Spain and Belgium. “The Verden May Auction collection was small, but convinced with its variety,” auction manager Jörg-Wilhelm Wegener said and was happy about the huge international interest.
