Helgstrand repeats success with online foal auctions
Pictured: Valuable sired by Helgstrand's former breeding stallion Valverde. Sold at the Helgstrand-Schockemöhle Online Foal Auction for 79,000 euro.
We have organised several foal auctions in collaboration with our German partner, Deckstation Schockemöhle, with great success for the breeders. We have travelled around Denmark, Germany, and the Netherlands to inspect foals, and it has been a pleasure to see so many high-quality offspring sired by Helgstrand or Schockemöhle stallions and to meet the breeders in person. Maintaining a close relationship to our breeders is very important to us.
- We want to provide the best service to our customers throughout the entire process, which is why we have decided to organise the auctions once again giving the breeders the perfect opportunity to reach out to potential buyers. At the same time, the inspections provide an opportunity to maintain a close dialogue, so that we can always stay on top of what our customers want, said Esben Møller, auction manager at Helgstrand Dressage.
The only requirement for participating in the inspections is that it must be an offspring of a current or former breeding stallion from one of the two stations. You can easily show more than one.
Among the many successful offspring sold at the Helgstrand-Schockemöhle auctions is Valuable, pictured here. An offspring of Helgstrand's former breeding stallion Valverde, who has achieved great success up to Intermediare II with his new rider, German Yara Reichert. Valuable was bought by Vicky Lavorie for 79,000 euros at Helgstrand-Schockemöhle's online foal auction in 2020. Valuable, bred by Lena and Rasmus Dalsgaard, has since been licensed in the Danish Warmblood Society.
