The year 2024 has barely begun and the first riding horse auction is just around the corner at the Westphalian Studbook. Thirty-five future stars for the dressage arena are up for sale. Nothing stands in the way of a successful start to the 2024 competition season.  

Future stars for everyone

Viva Rose provides a fantastic start to the 2024 auction year. The beautiful mare is a representative of the first vintage of Viva Gold,  who has impressed with his first offspring in the past two years, not only in the Westphalian auction hall. This four-year-old also impresses with a great movement quality and outstanding rideability. Her dam, Verb.Pr.St. Sherry Baby by Sir Donnerhall, is a half-sister to the German Amateur Championship of 2017: Londonbeat.

The much sought-after sire Escamillo once again delivers a top candidate in this auction lot. Extravagant: The name says it all! This dressage talent with the head number 3 shows enormous quality of movement.
