Good atmosphere in the Niedersachsenhalle
Exactly 100 horses belonged to the big lot of the Verden Auction in November. It was the last opportunity in the 70th year of the Verden Auction to bid for a Hanoverian or Rhinelander in the Niedersachsenhalle.
The top priced horse was Quedez, who was sold to Baden-Württemberg for 55,0000 Euro. On average, 16,510 Euros had to be invested for the top youngsters.
With head number 89, Quedez by Quantensprung/Sirtaki (breeder and exhibitor: Marina-Mara Tranins, Wahrenholz) had the greatest desires on his side. After a brisk bidding duel, auctioneer Frederick De Backer knocked down the last bid to a buyer from Baden-Württemberg for 55,000 Euros.
Best paid show jumper was Dahlien by Drosselklang II/Cheenook (breeder and exhibitor: Martina Zilinska, Dolni Domaslavice/CZE). The daughter of the Hanoverian Stallion of the Year 2001 was worth 40,000 Euros to a customer from France.
In the training time of the Verden Auction in November, the interest was already high far beyond the borders of Germany. Thus 33 auction horses will be fed outside of Germany in the future. Most of those horses secured customers from France (twelve), followed by the United Arabian Emirates (five) and Great Britain (three).
The riders of the Verden Auction Team said goodbye to Jörg-Wilhelm Wegener as auction manager with a big thank you. "Thank you Jörg" was written on the back of the T-Shirts that every rider wore during the presentation of their last horse.
