Foal Auction Prinsjesdag proudly presents its promising collection of jumping and dressage foals, which will be auctioned on the 17th and 18th of September in Ermelo. “For sure concerning the fillies, there is no auction in Europe with this caliber of foals”, says Fred van Straaten as one of the selectors.
A select group of 65 jumping and 60 dressage foals, including one in both breeding directions for charity, will be auctioned on the 17th and 18th of September at the National Center in Ermelo.
Both selection committees are full of praise for the selected foals. “We have great confidence in the show jumping bred foals that we have selected this year,” say selectors Fred van Straaten and Willem van Hoof. “We have a lot of very interesting colts, and certainly in terms of the fillies there is no auction in Europe that can match our collection. This makes Prinsjesdag Foal Auction the ultimate auction for investing in the future, for buyers who focus on both sport and breeding. Thanks to all the good breeders, we can auction very interesting foals on the 17th of September, in which we have great confidence.”
Extreme movement talents
The over-all quality is also striking in the dressage collection. “And that is supplemented by a number of extreme outliers”, tells selector Lauw van Vliet. “I have been involved in the selection of the dressage foals since this year and you cannot fully predict how things will go in advance. But I am very surprised by the loyalty of the breeders and the good name that Foal Auction Prinsjesdag has built up. The quality of the offered foals was very good and then the bar keeps rising. We have really selected on movement, elasticity, a functional conformation and good development. Great foals which originate from good damlines, who have a great future ahead of them.” On the 18th of September the dressage foals will be determined with whom they can start the future.
