Aloga Auction

Aloga Auction, founded by Bertram Allen, his brother Harry Allen, and their friend Maxi Lill, is dedicated to presenting and auctioning elite horses in the realms of show jumping and dressage. Established in 2021 at the Allen brothers' residence in Germany, the venture expanded its horizons in 2022 with the addition of Laurens Meynaert, leading to the creation of the Aloga Auction at Sentower Park. In 2023, the auction achieved remarkable success. Among the highlights was the sale of Kumina, who emerged as the World Champion in Lankan after being auctioned in this prestigious event.

Witness the joining of forces in show jumping and dressage excellence on May 6th and 7th, 2024. The Show jumping Auction will commence on May 6th, 2024, followed by the Dressage Auction on May 7th, 2024, hosted at the esteemed Sentower Park, Belgium. Attendees can anticipate two evenings of elegance, class, and world-class horses.
