The most important riding horse auction in the world, the 32nd Performance Sales International in Ankum, ended with record revenues for the 47 show jumping and dressage horses. The collection of horses which the P.S.I. organizers, Ullrich Kasselmann and Paul Schockemoehle, selected from their home bred or raised horses, clearly exceeded the previous years results. The Performance Sales International proved yet again at the 32nd edition that excellent quality has a price and it's exactly that quality that buyers from all over the world appreciate.

The top price in 2011 was much to the delight of Ullrich Kasselmann, paid for a dressage horse. The five year old Hanoverian black stallion Der Designer, a youngster sired by the Derby winner De Niro, was sold to Russia for 1.1 million Euros and marked the top result of the P.S.I.. After all, a buyer fromLebanon purchased the most expensive lot of the show jumping collection, the 6 year old bay stallion Chadino, by Chacco Blue, for 700,000 Euros. The stallion's sire is owned by Paul Schockemoehle and definitely can be seen as one of the top stallions at his Mühlen stud.

The P.S.I. Auction 2011 achieved an average price of 271,304 Euros for the dressage horses and 272,583 Euros for the show jumpers. A total of over 6 million was paid for the show jumpers (6.5 million) as well as the dressage horses (6.2 million) respectively.
