Sensational stallion sales of show jumping stallions

The Verden licensing of show jumping stallions presented itself extremely sporty and the stallion sales ended with an excellent result. In addition to the 33 two-year-olds, one three-year-old was presented for the first time at the stallion licensing in the Niedersachsenhalle. It was a complete success, he was one of the six premium stallions. A total of 18 exclusive jumping talents were licensed. The top priced horse was a Checkter/Stolzenberg son who was sold to the U.S. for 130,000 Euros.



On average, 54,400 Euros had to be paid for the Hannoveraern jumping stallions. The premium stallions were in great demand. The premium stallion by Checkter/Stolzenberg (breeder: Jasmin Leymann, Bassum, exhibitor: Böckmann Pferde GmbH, Lastrup), whose dam is a half sister of Eric Lamazes world class horse Fine Lady, was auctioned off to a regular customer from the U.S. for 130,000 Euros. He will not travel to Florida alone. A premium stallion by Diacontinus/Stolzenberg (breeder and exhibitor: Matthias Schäffer, Bremervörde) for 75,000 Euros as well as a premium stallion by Zinedream/Stolzenberg (breeder and exhibitor: Dr. Carsten Haack, Freiburg) for 88,000 Euros will accompany him. Privately owned sire Doom SR sent a premium stallion from his first vintage to the Niedersachsenhalle. The brown stallion out of an Aktion Pur dam (breeder and exhibitor: SR Sportpferde, Leipzig) will move to the State Stud Celle. The bid was accepted at 72,000 Euros. The stallion sales got off to a great start when the three-year-old Cherubino by Chacfly PS/Sunlight xx (breeder: Egest Thaden, Varel, exhibitor: Ekke Thaden, Varel), who won the free jumping competition of the Hannoveraner Jumping Breeding Programme in March, was auctioned off to France as the first premium stallion for 105,000 Euros. Marc Dilasser will take a seat in the saddle of the jumping dark bay out of the dam line of Fichtennadel. The sixth premium stallion will move into a box in Belgium. A Conthargos/Kannan son with unlimited scope (breeder: Siegfried Buhl, Syke, exhibitor: Jens Buhl, Syke) was sold at 65,000 Euros.


An average of 54,400 Euros had to be invested for the 15 licensed show jumping stallions that took part at the stallion sales – about 18,000 Euros more than last year. The OnLive Auction, where bids could be placed in the Niedersachsenhalle and via internet, was very popular with buyers from abroad. Ten young talents will leave Germany.


The 15 unlicensed two-and-a half-year-olds brought an average of 21,066.66 Euros into the exhibitors' coffers. Here, too, the customer from Florida was the one who recognised the outstanding quality of the 2019 vintage and bought a Casalido/Contendro son (breeder and exhibitor: Guido Köster, Grasberg) for 38,000 Euros.
