Scoop: talented sport horses from Schuttert in Prinsjesdag auction for the first time
With a spectacular collection of jumping foals and riding horses, Foal Auction Prinsjesdag is aiming for a strong comeback at CSI Ommen after two years of absence due to the corona pandemic. This fantastic event of the Schuttert family has built up an enormous reputation and international recognition and Foal Auction Prinsjesdag is proud to be able to organize an auction for the third time at this three-star competition. This year, in addition to eight excellent jumping foals, there are also four extremely talented sport horses, carefully selected by co-organizer Hendrik-Jan Schuttert.
The Schuttert family and Foal Auction Prinsjesdag have had an excellent relationship for years and with this edition at CSI Ommen, the collaboration goes one step further. Hendrik-Jan Schuttert offers four very talented show jumpers in the auction on Saturday evening 9 July. In addition to the jumping horses, Foal Auction Prinsjesdag has selected an exclusive collection of jumping foals.
The foal collection consists of eight interesting jumping foals descending from the best stallions from the leading tribes. Take for example Elton BN Z – a colt by Emerald from the famous lineage of Fair Light, Epleaser and Valentina van 't Heike. Or Waldemar van den Berg, a son of top talent Ermitage Kalone from the Van 't Roosakker family. Another eye-catcher is without a doubt Samoa W – son of Rolex Grand Prix winner Tobago Z out of the sister of Nixon van 't Meulenhof, Emerald, Ilusionata van 't Meulenhof and many more. The Aganix du Seigneur daughter Wonder Girl 3 Leien is also a breeder's dream; she is a filly from the famous line of Qerly Chin.
Four show jumpers were selected by Schuttert Sporthorses for the auction at CSI Ommen. Three talented five-year-olds and one very promising six-year-old complete the collection. The five-year-old Morrison OA (Apardi x Carrera VDL) was purchased as a foal by the Schuttert family at Foal Auction Prinsjesdag and has now developed into an extremely talented show jumper with impulsion, caution and reflexes. The five-year-old Diamant de Semilly daughter Marabel W is in turn a very modern showjumper with a lot of potential for the big sport; the Zapatero VDL son Mister Rossi is the most experienced five-year-old in the collection and stands out for his rideability, enormous scope and attitude. The six-year-old stallion Luciano is perhaps the most promising talent; this son of Grand Slam VDL has all the ingredients to become an international talent.
