Coming up this month is the Holsteiner Elite Foal Auction in Behrendorf and Elmshorn. Around 90 foals will be presented and have been pre-selected after demonstrating their correct structure and quality movement to a selection committee. All foals come from top-flight Holsteiner performance mare families and have been given a clean bill of health by an equine veterinary surgeon.
The most frequent sire is Casall which has continued his streak of success in the show jumping arena under Rolf-Göran Bengtsson.
Stanfour, winner of the Schleswig-Holstein 6-year-old show jumping championship this year, is also very popular with the breeders.
Another frequently used stallion is Clarimo showed good performance in competition at FEI level under Rolf-Göran Bengtsson.
Dinken, Uriko or Ziurocco Blue are stallions relatively "new to the business" in Holsteiner breeding. They had foals performing convincingly at the pre-selection tour which will now be presented to a broader audience.
All foal videos are available on line, so even if you are not in the market for your next imported superstar, why not check out who is on offer. Please click on the links below.
