Advertisement; Premieres and surprises at Holger Hetzel’s 9th Sport Horse Sales

Wednesday, 23 October 2013

Happiness, born in 2008 and by Cantos, is one of many top quality showjumpers that can be found at Holger Hetzel’s 9th Horse Sales.Nations Cup rider Holger Hetzel’s motto is “Quality can never be high enough“- and his collection for the 9th Sport Horse Sales definitely surpasses all previous quality benchmarks. On Tuesday 3 December 2013 this impressive collection of young horses will be changing hands at the exclusive auction event, held at Hetzel’s equestrian centre in Goch, Germany.

“National and international show jumping horses are having to jump much bigger and more technical courses these days, which is why scope, carefulness, rideability and character are becoming increasingly important in any buying decision,” said Holger Hetzel, setting out his key criteria for the selection of auction lots. This year 25 excellent horses aged between four and eight have made it into the distinguished auction collection. Nothing is left to chance in the selection of the horses, and all of them meet exacting standards of quality.

“Some of the horses in the collection have already competed in championships and we've even got championship winners,“ said the trainer with some pride. “This year’s auction is full of surprises.“

Next week the collection horses will be presented to the public, including information, photos and videos, on Holger Hetzel’s website ( “All the horses were 100% convincing at the video shoot and they cater to a wide range of rider requirements,“ commented Holger Hetzel.

As is typical for Holger, who is famous for his innovative ideas, the Sport Horse Sales event isn’t just an auction, but also a showcase for premieres. One premiere is the brand new indoor arena that has been completed just in time for the Sport Horse Sales. “The arena is a generously dimensioned 30 x 70m in size, so it gives us much more space and options to create a sensational atmosphere,“ said Holger, who is delighted with the new build.

And the new indoor arena isn’t the only premiere at Holger Hetzel's 2013 Sport Horse Sales. Come along and find out what else he has in store!
