“Every dressage enthusiast can indulge here.” At Global Dressage Auction you will find the world’s most interesting dressage genes. Whether you are looking to invest in a transferred embryo, frozen embryo, or a pregnant broodmare, Koos Poppelaars has once again managed to assemble a compelling collection. The bidding starts Thursday 16 February and the auctions closes Sunday 19 February from 8PM.
“It is challenging for many breeders to get their hands on renowned dressage genes. Fortunately, we have so far succeeded to secure embryos out of exceptional dam lines for every collection. It pays off to invest in embryo especially with our guarantee scheme.” Buying embryos with a guarantee? That’s only possible at Global Dressage Auction.
Vamos Amigos, Imhotep, Foundation
The newest collection is infused with the best genes. You have the opportunity to get your hands on embryos out of the full sister of the highly successful Vamos Amigos and an embryo out of the dam of Charlotte Dujardin’s Imhotep. As well as embryos out of the full sister of Foundation, the half-sister of Blue Hors Zack, the full sister of Glock’s Johnson TN and out of the dam lines of the Olympic Parzival, Don Schufro, and Dablino FRH. On the paternal side, the embryos carry the genes of Extra Gold, Glamourdale, Kjento, Indian Rock, Totilas, Toto Jr., For Romance and last but not least Dante Weltino.
Special guarantee scheme
Global Dressage Auction has drawn up a special guarantee scheme for the embryos that have not yet been transferred.
Koos Poppelaars explains: “The success rate of implantation has significantly improved in the last few years. It is currently about 80% and the techniques used by our sellers are carried out and supervised by the very best veterinarians. We fully understand our buyers want to keep the risks to a minimum and we have come up with a solution.”
No auction costs
“When you purchase one of our non-transferred embryos, we make sure the embryo is inserted in a recipient mare. These surrogate mares are available at the clinic that has produced the embryo.” And what if a buyer has their own recipient mare? “That is also possible provided that the clinic has approved the mare for embryo transplantation. Should a pregnancy not be achieved, the buyer only owes a limited sum, the purchase price and auction costs are waived. In some cases, it is even possible to insert a second embryo. We hope to lower the threshold and make these excellent dressage genes available for an even bigger audience. Together we can take dressage horse breeding to the next level.”
Preferably a broodmare
“The embryos we offer via our auction platform are always met with an eager anticipation by keen buyer. Experience has taught me that there are also many dressage enthusiasts who prefer to invest in a broodmare. You often must be really lucky to get hold of a mare that originates from the renowned dressage lineages. Fortunately, we have built such a network. This way, any dressage breeder who wants to improve and/or expand their breeding program, can come to us”, Koos Poppelaar concludes.
Three pregnant broodmares adorn the collection.
The striking grey New Daula is a daughter of Painted Black out of the Daula line. She is in foal to Toto Jr. Her half-brother Pascha (s.Toto Jr) was recently appointed to the main stallion show in Vechta.
Besides the Dutch blood, the collection also boasts a German staatsprämie mare. This Florelia is a granddaughter of the full sister to the Olympic Don Schufro and expects a foal this year by the spectacular young stallion Damaschino.
The third broodmare descends from the dam line of Sintano van Hof Olympia that won team silver for Great Britain at the EC of Riesenbeck. This daughter of Foundation is in foal to Indian Rock.
“Moreover, the mares have had a veterinary examination and we have included as much additional information about them as possible. Think of the WFFS status for example, or whether a mare has been ridden.”
