Danony sold for 39,500 Euros

It was the last riding horse auction of the year in Verden. After ten days of training, the 65 top-class talents achieved online an average price of 16,254 Euros. Above all, the Hannoveraner premium candidate Danony was auctioned off for 39,500 Euros.

The daughter of Danone/Fürst Nymphenburg, Hann.Pr.A. Danony (breeder and exhibitor: Jochen Meyer, Allwörden), impressed with her enormous movements. The chestnut mare from the proven dam line of Norodina, which has already produced Heike Kemmer's former top horse, Borsalino, inspired eight interested parties to an exciting bidding duel. The last bid was 39,500 Euros, submitted by a buyer from Baden-Württemberg.



The most expensive jumper was Seppl by Stakkato/Contendro. The four-year-old dark bay, who goes back to the foundation mare Eckernförde II such as Hannover’s top sire Argentan, was worth 23,500 Euros to a buyer from Mexico. With the best performance attitude he is predestined for a successful career in show jumping.



"The collection of the auction in November was smaller than in previous years. The proportion of foreign sales is to be seen positively under current conditions," said managing director and auction manager Wilken Treu. Almost half (31) of the horses will leave Germany. The greatest interest was shown in Finland with seven purchases, followed by France with six and Spain with four.


"It was a very difficult but also exciting auction year, which we managed with the help and trust of our breeders, exhibitors and customers," said Wilken Treu. "At the end of the year we still have a small surprise: On December 11th/12th, we will offer a small, exquisite group of two and a half year old stallions". These are young stallions that were admitted to the licensing in October, but were withdrawn and will now make their big appearance.
