Serengeti leads statistics

The collection of the Verden Auction Online in July With presented great unity on a very good level. After the eleven-day auction period and several online presentations, Serengeti led the price scale with a hammer price of 40,000 Euros. For the 50 riding horses, an average of 21,100 Euros had to be paid.

Even before the final bid up began, the Secret/Don Primero son Serengeti (breeder and exhibitor: Hartmut Struß, Elze) was in high demand. The four-year-old dark bay out of the highly successful dam line of Blenna was auctioned off for 40,000 Euros to a dressage rider from the Rhine-Main area. Only slightly below this mark two highly talented mares were sold to Switzerland: Desiree by Don Index/Don Vino (breeder and exhibitor: Bernhard and Johannes Achter, Haren) achieved 39,000 Euros and Lisann by Libertad/Rubinero (breeder: Johannes Finger, Bunde, exhibitor: Volker Neuhaus, Mühlheim) 38,000 Euros.


Equipped with a jumper pedigree, Boss Orange by Balou Peggio/Catoki (breeder: Richard Jungclaus, Drochtersen, exhibitor: Johann Rosenberg, Vechelde) convinced above all with his outstanding rideability and generous movement under the dressage saddle. A customer from Belgium invested 35,000 Euros for the colourful chestnut gelding.


The collection was characterised by great homogeneity. 38 of the 50 dressage and jumping talents brought their exhibitors hammer prices of over 15,000 Euros. 22 riding horses will leave Germany. Most of them were auctioned off to other European countries. Five Verden auction horses will be going to the USA, one found a new owner from Chile and one from Uzbekistan.
