Verden - There was a huge interest in the collection of the 129th Elite Auction for the Hannoveraner Verband. 64 riding horses were put up for sale, eight youngsters were sold at more than Euro 100,000. The Fidertanz-son Friemel became top-priced horse of the auction, sold at Euro 200,000 to Brazil. Regular customers from Kirchlinteln paid Euro 30,000 for the top-priced foal, Daimond's Hit by Diamond Hit. The four-year-old dressage youngster Friemel by Fidertanz/De Vito (breeder: Gerd Pigge, Lastrup * exhibitor: Hannoveraner Zuchtgestüt GmbH & Co. KG, Lilienthal) already entered the Verden auction arena as a foal. Today, the Hanoverian Riding Horse Champion of mares and geldings comes out a winner in riding horse ability classes and convincingly qualified for the Bundeschampionate. A Brazilian customer won the bid; Friemel will start his career with Anabel Balkenhol.
Top-priced jumper became Cadanos by Catoki/Lordanos (breeder: Christina Martens, Ringstedt * exhibitor: Fritz Dieter Tietjen, Bremen): The licensed and performance tested stallion convinced with his outstanding sports attitude. Auctioneer Bernd Hickert sold Cadanos at Euro 155,000 to China. The Westphalian Equitaris by Estobar NRW/Rubiloh (breeder: Norbert Borgmann, Ostbevern * exhibitor: Stefan Borgmann, Ostbevern) was also sold at a top price. A regular customer from North Rhine-Westphalia paid Euro 175,000 for the typey, licensed bay horse. Descada by Desperados/Hohenstein (breeder: Heino Bruns, Gödenstorf * exhibibitor: Andreas Bruns, Gödenstorf) exhibited the same super elastic, flowing gaits as her sire in the Niedersachenhalle and was sold at Euro 170,000, also to North Rhine-Westphalia. Team Olympic Champion Nadine Capellmann purchased the Westphalian mare Felice by Fürst Piccolo/Ehrentanz (breeder: Manfred Walla, Bochum * exhibitor: Ludwig Fischer, Bärnau) at Euro 140,000, almost the same price as was paid for Samoa by Stolzenberg/Graf Top (breeder: Adolf Bahn, Maasen * exhibitor: Axel Bahn, Maasen). The show passport of the state premium candidate features a number of placements achieved in show jumping development classes. She changed to Sweden at Euro 130,000.
Euro 43,805 was the average price invested in the riding horses: 38 futurity prospects will face the challenge of competitions abroad with the US heading the statistics with 11 purchases. Breeding Manager Dr. Werner Schade concluded: "It has become apparent again that our international marketing strategy has successfully started to take effect, whether for the traditional markets such as the US, but also in countries with rapid growth potential such as Asia and South America." And Auction Manager Jörg-Wilhelm Wegener added: "This Elite Auction finished with an extraordinary result. Three jumpers sold at each more than Euro 100,000 * this has never happened before. Special quality deserves special prices. This is how the Verden autumn should be continued."
Euro 6,644 was the average price achieved for the foals. Top-priced foal became Diamond's Hit by Diamond Hit/San Remo (breeder and exhibitor: Klaus Niemann, Petershagen), sold at Euro 30,000. He will grow up in Kirchlinteln in Lower Saxony. 13 young Hanoverians will leave Germany.
