Westphalia celebrates show jumping stallions

Stallion sale of jumping stallions closes the licensing 2022

Münster: After the two stallion sales of the dressage and jumping stallions, the Westphalian Studbook can be pleased about a total turnover of 4.6 million Euros. An average of 62,583 Euros was invested today in the licensed jumping auction candidates. The non licensed jumping stallions cost an average of 18,375 Euros. The 1st reserve champion was much sought after. The son of Aganix du Seigneur changed to Belgian ownership for 162,000 Euros. He will move to the Klatte station.

After two more days of the licensing of the jumping stallions, the best were determined. This afternoon, the licensing committee selected head number 61 as the 1st Reserve Champion. The striking son of Aganix du Seigneur Z/Mylord Carthago (breeder: Zuchthof Meindl GmbH & CoKG, Kirchanschöring; exhibitor: Kart Gravemeier, Münster) descents from the dam line of Congress, who is highly successful with Marie Ligges in the saddle. At the hammer price of 162,000 Euros, he changed hands to Karel Cox and Paul van den Bosch from Belgium. The grey stallion will move in at the Klatte station. Like the Champion Stallion, the 2nd Reserve Champion Stallion is also a son of Conthargos. He was bred by H. Dissel from the Netherlands out of Izabalia SMH by Zavall VDL. Exhibited by Hendrik Zurich, Schüttorf, the liver chestnut showed ability and quality at the jump. "A sport partner and sire for the future, out of an important dam line", this is how Thomas Münch describes the young stallion. For the hammer price of 150,000 Euros he changed to the joint ownership of the State Studs from North Rhine-Westphalia and Bavaria.

The champion stallion of this year's licensing also entered the final auction. "Striking in type and constitution, with quality of movement, expression and caution at the jump", auctioneer Thomas Münch described the bay stallion. The son of Conthargos/Casall with the head number 68 (breeder: Hans-Jürgen Heitmann, Dinklage; exhibitor: Matthias Schlamminger GbR, Regensburg) presented himself from his best side during the past two days. He descents from the dam line of United Touch. The former Westphalian premium stallion is currently causing a sensation under the saddle of Richard Vogel. At this year's Bundeschampionat, he won the Grand Prix of Warendorf and recently won the World Cup leg in Stuttgart. The champion stallion could not achieve the desired price at the auction. He will remain in Germany and will be stabled at the Wilbers station.

Twelve of the 15 stallions with a positive licensing result found a new owner. With a turnover of 751,000 Euros, the customers invested an average of 62,583 Euros in the future sires. Of the five non licensed stallions offered, four were successfully sold. With an average price of 18,375 Euros, they turned over 73,500 Euros. A total of ten stallions were sold to owners outside of Germany. With the two stallion sales, the Westphalian Stud Book turned over a total of 4.6 million Euros during these days.

The licensing week in Westphalia is not over yet! Already on Saturday, the small horse breeds will be presented at the Westphalian Studbook. The week will end on Sunday with an OnLive auction for riding pony stallions and riding pony youngsters.
