The weekend from 13 to 16 August is all about Holsteiner horses this year, with the riding horse summer auction sale, the elite foal auction sale and the open foal sale all held in the course of one weekend for the first time ever, along with the rescheduled state championships for the 4 to 7-year-old jumping horses, jumping classes open to young riders and amateurs and a big competition organized for the Holsteiner young breeders.

All events and activities take place at the Elmshorn Verband facility. “By combining these events we hope to be able to free important synergy effects for our customers and exhibitors, hoping to widen the appeal in particular for our foreign customers“, says Roland Metz. The executive director has selected 64 foals for the elite auction. In addition to Holstein’s core competence – jumping horses – there is also a small but choice dressageselection, with well-known sires like Escolar, Quaterback, Franziskus or For Romance I OLD presenting typey dressage prospects with outstanding movement.

In the jumping foal selection the customers are spoilt for choice, with foals by prominent and proven sires as well as foals by breeding stallions in the early stages of their stud career. Million Dollar, United Way, Cornet’s Quaprice, Origi d’O, Manchester van’t Paradijs, Crack, Lewine or else Corfu de la Vie are only some representatives. And it goes without saying that already well-established studs like Eldorado van de Zeshoek, Quidam de Revel, Diamant de Semilly, Colman, Diarado, Caretino, Clarimo, Livello, Conthargos, Casall, Van Gogh and for example Comme il Faut are also represented by offspring. But what would Holstein be without its famous mare families? And that’s why the foals come from direct damlines which have produced licensed stallions or 1.60m level jumpers like for example Quiwi Dream (stem 8888), Canoso (18A2), Glock’s Cognac Champlanc and H&M Chilli Willi (318D2), Cumano (318D2), Catoki (4705), Contendro (104A), Rosalia la Silla (1907), Austria (4564) or else Carthago (162), Chardonnay (1228) and Holiday by Solitour (2666).



And everybody looking for an appropriate sport partner can strike on Friday, the day before the foal auction sale, as well, when 15 Holsteiners ready for action come under the hammer of Hendrik Schulze-Rückamp in the riding horse auction sale. From four-year-old youngster to six-year-old jumper with course experience, many customers should have their needs met. In addition, Sunday’s auction sales are followed by an open foal sale. “We provide a platform for free trade between exhibitor and customer and over the past years numerous foals have been sold this way, so we want to offer this service again this year“, says Roland Metz. About 25 Holsteiner foals carrying a variety of interesting bloodlines will be offered at the open foal sale.

The first Holsteiner Summer Event’s extensive marketing and sale events are embedded in attractive show activities for young and amateur jumping ridersand the young breeders’ day. While the traditional state championships for dressage and jumping horses as well as the young breeders’ competition scheduled for the Holsteiner Horse Days in June had to be cancelled due to the Corona crisis, they have now been rescheduled for the third weekend in August. So the Holsteiner Summer Event provides lots of excitement, catering to horse sport enthusiast, (young) breeders, and of course our customers.
