For the third year in a row, Foal Auction Prinsjesdag is organizing an exclusive showjumping foal auction during CSI3* Ommen. Once again, a select group of extremely interesting future talents will be auctioned in this auction, which is scheduled for Saturday 11 July. Registrations are now open for both this auction and the regular auctions on 15 and 16 September in Ermelo.
In the 2019 edition of the auction at CSI Ommen, all foals were sold for a price of at least €10,000 and an average price of €12,500 was realized. The For Pleasure son O'Pleasure Ice from breeder Ton van Tilburg turned out to be the most expensive of the ten foals with a price of €19,000. This year, Foal Auction Prinsjesdag is again looking for absolute top foals. “We have set the bar high at Foal Auction Prinsjesdag. Every year we try to select foals that we can really make our customers happy with. Genetically interesting jumping foals with a lot of sport close by in the dam line, good models and ditto canter. Foals that can develop into toppers for both sport and breeding," says selector Willem van Hoof, who is responsible for the selection of the jumping foals together with Fred van Straaten. “For the exclusive auction in Ommen, we also want to select early-born foals, as the auction already takes place on 11 July.”
On the website www.prinsjesdag.eu the foals can now be registered for both the auction in Ommen and the regular auctions in Ermelo on 15 (jumping foals) and 16 (dressage foals) September. For the auctions in Ermelo, the first dates of the selection days can be found on the website, starting on May 22. For decades, Foal Auction Prinsjesdag has proven to be one of the best auctions in Europe and thus offers a fantastic stage for the top of the year.
