The Horse Auction organization can look back on the first auction of this year with great satisfaction. "The auction went very well. We continued the line of last year and perhaps improved it by selecting even better for quality and guaranteeing fair prices. We had a nice collection with something for everyone and the horses are for different price ranges. The average price for the show jumpers was almost € 14,500 in this edition. We also had six promising frozen embryos in the collection. The average price here was € 7,000. These are very nice amounts. We are also very happy with the large interest from abroad. This continues to grow with each auction and we can always welcome new countries among the bidders and buyers. "
