There has been enormous interest, from both Germany and abroad, in advance of the 16th International Sport Horse Sales featuring a collection of 21 talented youngsters on 24 November 2021 at Holger Hetzel’s equestrian centre in Goch. 

One of the reasons for this high demand is likely to be the cancellation of the annual event last year for the first time since 2004 as a result of COVID-19 restrictions. It’s also equally due to the fact that hundreds of buyers from Germany and all over the world are delighted owners of horses bought at past Sport Horse Sales events, which is why many of the potential bidders at this year’s auction are repeat customers. The horses in Holger Hetzel’s previous sport horse collections have gone on to celebrate numerous successes in recent years at fixtures ranging from the European Championships for children (up to the age of 14) to Olympic Games.   

The last chance to view the horses being put through their paces and arrange a final try-out is at the presentation on 21 November 2021 at 10 am. Holger Hetzel takes the safety of his guests just as seriously as the quality of his horses. All visitors at the presentation have to present proof of being fully vaccinated, recovered or tested.

“I want every customer who travels here to Goch to feel absolutely safe, knowing that we have taken the highest standard of COVID-19 precautions possible,” explained Holger. On the day of the auction even more stringent requirements will be in place. All guests have to be vaccinated, recovered or have a negative test certificate dated the same day, and a test centre has been set up at the venue for that purpose. The final presentation on the day of the auction, 24 November, begins at 5 pm with the added excitement of international show jumpers and championship winners commenting the 21 five to eight year old horses. At 9 pm the curtains open for the Holger Hetzel and his team’s 16th International Sport Horse Sales with both live and telephone bidding.
