“Performance Plus, Success For Sale,” is the slogan of the newest sport horse auction, organised by a group of breeding and equestrian sport aficionado’s on Wednesday September 22, 2004 at the KNHS Centre in Ermelo, The Netherlands. The Performance Plus collection features 82 sport horses and young prospects bred out of the best German European bloodlines.
The youngest horses in the collection are yearlings, the oldest are eight-years old and are professionally trained in show jumping and/or dressage. There is also a large selection of two-year old colts which can be presented at the stallion licensing for the KWPN or German verbands this year. Auctioneer Hans Sinnige will also bring seven broodmares with highly decorated bloodlines to the hammer.
Highlights in the Performance Plus collection are “Florencia,” the full sister of World Champion Florencio (Florestan x Weltmeyer), who wrote history under Hans Peter Minderhoud by scoring a 10 for his canter and a 9.5 for his elasticity, engagement and movement potential. Other eye catchers in the collection are offspring by World Champions Don Davidoff, Sandro Hit and Florencio. Top KWPN youngsters bred in The Netherlands are sired by Jazz and Olympic horses Lancet and Ferro.
The selection of show jumping horses is of outstanding quality as well. Jumper legends Baloubet de Rouet, Espri, Mr Blue and Quidam de Revel infused show jumping talent in the Performance Plus horses.
