"During the ten-days of the training period in Verden, the horses were partly ridden on site and partly only inspected online – that is the phenomenon of online auctions," summarized Managing Director Wilken Treu. "For many customers, bidding from the comfort of their own home or on the road with a computer is very convenient. Over half of the horses (30) will leave Germany. Switzerland (six) and France (five) secured the largest contingents. Three auction horses will travel to Panama, two were auctioned off to Uzbekistan.
