Ecstasy became the best selling horse in the 2023 Westfalian winter auction on 27 January 2023, which had to be held live instead of online after a server crash of the online bidding platform mid January.
Forty riding horses and three riding ponies were offered for sale in Münster-Handorf and 36 of them sold for an average price of 27,986 euro. It was exactly three years ago that riding horses were auctioned live in the auction hall at the Westphalian Horse Centre. The horses were presented in hand.

The now 6-year old former pony Bundeschampion Glückskeks (by Golden West x FS Champion de Luxe), owned by Veronika Vielwerth-Rankl, was up for sale and found a new owner for 38,000 euro. He will stay in Germany.
