On your marks, get set, go: The 57 horses of the Verden Auction Online in July crossed the finish line at a rapid pace. In the final spurt La Jolie carried off the top price of 53,500 Euros. The 57-strong main field crossed the finish line with an average price of 16.605 Euros.

As a filly, Gestüt Gerkenhof, Kirchlinteln, discovered the outstanding potential of La Jolie by Libertad/Davignon (b.: Hans-Joachim and Lydia Muth, Leuderode) and purchased the strong moving chestnut mare at the auction in July 2016. Four years later she was worth 53,500 Euros to a new customer from North Rhine-Westphalia.

As the best paid jumper, the already five-year-old Descara by Diancontinus/Escudo (b. a. e.: Hendrik A. Könemann, Thomasburg) finished the race. This wealthy grey mare was born to perform. Her dam Escada already produced advanced (S) level show jumpers with the internationally successful My Kiwi, the licensed stallion Conquest Boy and the half siblings Coco, Cicero and Chanel. Descera will be eating her oats in Switzerland for 22,000 Euros in future. 

"During the ten-days of the training period in Verden, the horses were partly ridden on site and partly only inspected online – that is the phenomenon of online auctions," summarized Managing Director Wilken Treu. "For many customers, bidding from the comfort of their own home or on the road with a computer is very convenient. Over half of the horses (30) will leave Germany. Switzerland (six) and France (five) secured the largest contingents. Three auction horses will travel to Panama, two were auctioned off to Uzbekistan.

Those who don't want to wait until the next auction of riding horses on October 9/10 can secure a young talent for tomorrow at the beginning of August The next circa 100 foals and one brood mare will come to Verden on August 8th and 9th for the online auction. On Friday, August 7, the auction foals will be presented live in Verden for the first time in 2020. At 5 p.m., a limited number of prospective buyers will be able to take a live look at the youngsters in Verden - of course with the appropriate distance. It's worth being quick, because registration is mandatory for the foal presentation, the number of places is limited. In addition, the presentation will be broadcasted via ClipMyHorse.TV in the livestream. Registrations for the live presentation will be accepted until July 31st exclusively by sending an e-mail to [email protected] stating the number of participants and their names. A confirmation of registration from the Hanoverian Association is obligatory.
