Save the date: August 3 in Ommen

On Saturday 3 August, ten exclusive jumping foals will be auctioned by Koen Olaerts in the second edition of Foal Auction Prinsjesdag at CSI3* Ommen. Last year it turned out that the competition at the Schuttert family offers a wonderful stage for the carefully bred and selected future talents. Several riders already invested in the future during the first edition.

“You see auctions of embryos and even frozen embryos everywhere. There is a huge run on genetically high-quality foals, and that is of course the market that Foal Auction Prinsjesdag focuses on. For many riders, and breeders, buying a foal is the ideal and sometimes only way to ensure a promising show jumper. The advantage of buying a foal compared to an embryo is that you can select much closer to your goal. You not only know the pedigree, but also the sex, the development, the canter, the model, and so on”, selector Fred van Straaten is enthusiastic. “We are very pleased with the foals that are part of the Ommen collection. The collection includes very interesting colts for sport and breeding, as well as genetically top interesting fillies that, in addition to a sports career, can also be used to build a new stock.”
