Behind the Scenes at Auction
Finding Great Horses
Each auction horse that arrives at the stammbuch for pre-training has been carefully selected many months prior to the auction. The selection team of Mr. Bernd Richter and Mr. Carsten Lenz are continually combing our State at regional horse shows and breeder’s yard to find your next superstar. They know and understand the importance of presenting a full range of national and international candidates for our auctions and are constantly updating and changing their mix to ensure their is something for everyone, but always of top quality.
Training the Horses
We pride ourselves that our trainers and riders are some of the best in the country.
Our attention to fundamentals and details for each horse’s training pays off in the preview rings when clients meet our horse and rider teams and get a chance to experience the good level of rideability our training team produce. Each rider has a designated group of horses which they ride exclusively through their 2 months with the association prior to the auction. Our riders are happy to share details and stories of their charges - their goal is to produce a winning and happy partner for you.
Health of the Horses
We believe that the welfare and comfort of the each horse is our top priority.
A thorough vet check is completed at one of our modern and well known Veterinarian clinics Telgte, clinic Dülmen orLichtenbusch and each examination includes a full set of x-rays which are classified and ready with full reports client perusal. Our auction horses are monitored regularly throughout their training and during the Auction Week.
