Taking all government and RIVM guidelines into account, Foal Auction Prinsjesdag will organize a live auction on Tuesday 15 September – of course adjusted to the current circumstances. The location remains unchanged; as per usual, Foal Auction Prinsjesdag will take place at the KNHS Centre in Ermelo. The set-up and decoration will be different than normal, for example, the foal auction will take place in the open air with space for a limited number of VIP guests and invited guests.
In addition to the 59 foals already published, three wildcard foals will be auctioned as well by Koen Olaerts on Tuesday 15 September. Foal Auction Prinsjesdag has made a detailed and extensive corona plan to meet all guidelines. Unfortunately, the organization is only allowed to welcome a limited number of guests during the live auction this year, but everyone has the opportunity to place their bids online on the exclusive foals.
Unique Prinsjesdag atmosphere
The VIP box will be divided into several separate tents around the auction arena, each with two VIP tables for four people. In this way, the 1.5 meter distance rule can be maintained while the organization tries to create the unique atmosphere of Foal Auction Prinsjesdag.
The dressage and jumping foals will be auctioned in one auction this year starting from 2 pm CEST. The traditional foal presentations is cancelled, since it seems to be too difficult to ensure the corona measures could be maintained. From 12:00 noon, the foals will be available for viewings for those interested to get a good impression of the collection anyway. Naturally, all foals will appear live in the arena during the auction.
The program for Tuesday September 15 is as follows:
Arrival foals 9:00 am – 11:30 am
Viewing foals 12:00 am – 01:30 pm
Reception guests 1:30 pm – 2:00 pm
Auction starts at 2:00 pm
