Healthy horses thanks to Havens horse feed!

Havens Voerders has been a household name in the region since 1846. After the Second World War, Havens expanded its range to include horse feed. A logical choice given that more and more agricultural horses were used for sport and recreation. The demand for honest and high-quality horse feed continued to grow and their range is now available in more than 50 countries worldwide!

The welfare of the horses is of paramount importance to Havens. For example, they only use natural raw materials, which is not only good for well-being, but also for the ecological footprint they leave on this world. While much horse feed is focused on a formula to optimize production or performance, Havens opts for the health of the horses, which ultimately benefits performance.

This fits in nicely with our wishes for the foals and we are very proud that Havens has been associated with our foal auction for years thanks to Bart Minten and his close contacts within our board. Curious about their products? HAVENS is present during our auctions and provides goodie bags for the breeders! Read more about Havens via:

Clarity in finances thanks to Felix Hippisch

Finances: no one's favorite activity. It is quite a challenge to do this well, especially in the equestrian sector. Just think of the exceptions in the field of VAT percentages. Felix Hippisch provides clarity here for every horse owner as an expert in the tax field. Did you know, for example, that thanks to their efforts, the VAT margin scheme can now be applied to a foal?

Felix is not only the proud sponsor of our foal auction, but has also been assisting us legally for years. At our auctions they support foreign buyers with the transactions and associated taxes. As a Dutch horse owner, you can of course also contact them for all your legal and financial issues.

Exclusivity and quality are of paramount importance to Felix, but it is especially the passion and affinity with the horse industry that shine through when you talk to one of the employees of this family business. For example, owner Jos Felix bought Nadira Esther (by Vitalis) at our foal auction 4 years ago. Daughter Annelotte Felix scored 80 points at the past KWPN championships in Ermelo with this beautiful 5-year-old mare and also works in the marketing department at Felix.

Exceptionally talented Trigger-Time auction top-seller for 37,000 euro at Foal Auction Prinsjesdag

The 32e edition of Foal Auction Prinsjesdag had great outcome last night in Ermelo with an average price of 12,300 euros and a top price of 37,000 euros for the striking Extreme US daughter Trigger-Time. This exceptionally talented filly comes from the breeding of family Van Enckevort and remains on Dutch soil. “All in all, we can look back on a successful auction with a high sales percentage and a nice average,” states Prinsjesdag chairman Arjan van der Waaij.

The Amalia Hall at the National Equestrian Centre was packed on Tuesday evening and the atmosphere was great at the 32nde auction of Foal Auction Prinsjesdag. Singer Raffaela Paton traditionally started the auction with the national anthem and auctioneer Koen Olaerts first auctioned an item for charity. For the benefit of Amalia Children's Hospital, this edition first auctioned a dinner voucher at restaurant De Gezelligheid and this item initially raised 3,750 euros. 

16,000 euros for Amalia Children's Hospital

After the break, Team Nijhof offered a covering Hernandez TN N.O.P. – a Prinsjesdag graduate. The bids were high, until one bidder doubled his offer, but also asked for not one, but two coverings of Hernandez TN N.O.P.. Team Nijhof agreed and did so again when no less than 11,000 euro was bid for three (!) coverings of the exceptional stallion bred by the late Willem Dekker. Thereupon, the buyer of the dinner voucher increased his bid to 5,000 euro and a whopping 16,000 euro was raised for the Amalia Children's Hospital. “A wonderful gesture to support this special charity in this way. We are very grateful to the buyers, and certainly also Team Nijhof and restaurant De Gezelligheid,” states Arjan van der Waaij.

20,000 euros for Emerald colt

Around 05.45 pm, the first foal came under the hammer of Koen Olaerts and soon multiple foals above the 10,000 euro mark followed. In the first part of the auction, Two 2 Tango NN in particular caught the eye; this colt by Fynch Hatton was sold at 17,000 euro. After the short break, the mood was soon well up and 23,000 euro was bid for the very striking colt Trendwatcher Texel (Extreme US x Glock's Toto Jr); this talent fell into the hands of a very loyal Prinsjesdag investor.

The most expensive jumping colt also came in part two of the foal auction. For 20,000 euros, the striking colt Extra Panama W (Emerald x Echo van Spieveld) was sold; this eye-catcher is directly bred out of Frank Schuttert's top talent Panama van 't Roosakker. The second most expensive showjumping foal of the evening was Elisabeth Z - a special daughter of Ermitage Kalone out of the top Larthago line.

Eye-catchers in the ending

Particularly in the end of the auction, the dressage foals became very popular. Tom Cruise Texel (Hermes N.O.P. x Negro) brought 23,000 euro, 25,000 euro was paid for Troubadour A (For Romance I x Wynton) and a whopping 35,000 euro was bid for the promising Toptoto E (O'Toto van de Wimphof x Charmeur). The final auction top-seller was the penultimate foal of the auction; the remarkable filly Trigger-Time. This daughter of Extreme US x Grand Galaxy Win T remains in the Netherlands for 37,000 euros.

Nice average

“With buyers from the Netherlands, Belgium, Poland, Germany, Great Britain and Ireland, international interest was once again high, but remarkably, especially a few Dutch investors also made their move,” says Arjan van der Waaij. “The standout dressage foals provided the outliers this edition and ended up bringing an average of over 13,000 euros. Among the jumping foals, an average of 11,500 euros was paid, bringing the average to 12,300 euros,” the chairman looks back on the 32nd edition of Foal Auction Prinsjesdag with great satisfaction.e edition of Foal Auction Prinsjesdag.
