We have received numerous inquiries from the international dressage world upon the release of the first photos and videos of the horses slated for the Excellent Dressage Sales auction on March 30th in Hooge Mierde. This year, an unprecedented number of elite horses will come under the hammer at the event. According to co-organizer Joep Schellekens: “we’ve never had so many reactions. We have good horses across the board for each target group, but it’s mainly the top horses that are getting the attention. Horses like Charming Lady, who recently scored over 75% at Jumping Amsterdam with Jeanine Nieuwenhuis, are obviously one in a million.”
The EDS team has much to offer this year: in addition to the Grand Prix phenomenon and elite mare Charming Lady (s. Painted Black), the Grand Prix horse Cynosa (s. Tuschinski) will be among the horses available for bid. The top mare Kavira (s. Franklin) has also generated great interest. She not only won the Reserve Champion title at the KWPN National Mare Inspection but also placed sixth in the VSN Trophy competition.
Kavira possesses unique talent for an elite career in dressage. In addition, the auction collection includes numerous good geldings and stallions.
Among them is Lamborghini (s. High Five US), who in ‘s-Hertogenbosch was selected for the performance test in Ermelo. He has already been approved in Mecklenburg. His dam is the elite mare Garina; and further back in his pedigree is Barina, among the most successful broodmares in the Netherlands. This year, the EDS collection boasts 42 horses, a number of which are classified at the Prix St. Georges-, ZZ- and Z-level. The auction will also offer a selection of young horses; and as in previous years, some happy bidders are certain to take home a “bargain”.
Excellent Dressage Sales takes place on Saturday, March 30th, at Landgoed Culitsrode in Hooge Mierde. Admission is free to the presentation on Wednesday, March 27th. Starting today, all the horses are available to try out. For more information and to schedule an appointment, e-mail us at email@example.com
