“With buyers from the Netherlands, Belgium, Poland, Germany, Great Britain and Ireland, international interest was once again high, but remarkably, especially a few Dutch investors also made their move,” said organizer Arjan van der Waaij. “The standout dressage foals provided the outliers this edition and ended up bringing an average of over 13,000 euros. Among the jumping foals, an average of 11,500 euros was paid, bringing the average to 12,300 euros. All in all, we can look back on a successful auction with a high sales percentage and a nice average."
