– Stal Tops:

This is the next step in the evolution of Trigon Auctions. We have started this project at the beginning of the foal season and we want to keep offering horses with potential. Just like at the start of this journey, soundness and correctness are key as many of our buyers make the purchase in full confidence. Now by adding these mares that have dominated the 3 year-old-championship in The Netherlands we enter the next phase for Trigon Auctions.


The auction open Friday 11 September at 17:00h CEST and closes on Wednesday 16 September from 20:00 CEST onwards.
