Verden Auction on August 4/5

Foals and Broodmares

The collection of the Verden Auction on August 4/5 features stars of tomorrow and friends for a lifetime.

For the second time, the Verden Auction for foals and broodmares will be held at the same time as the Verden International. We have five days of top riding sport for the public. There will be riding horse and showjumping ability championship classes as well as dressage championship classes.

We also have two days, running at the same time as the equestrian festival, a foal and broodmare auction with very popular bloodlines. There will be a presentation for the foals and broodmares on Friday, 4th of August, and on Saturday, 5th of August. Following the presentation on Saturday, 5th of August, will be the auction for the broodmares. The presentation for the foals will be held also on Friday, 4th of August, and Saturday, 5th of August.  Following the presentations on both, Friday and Saturday, the foals will be auctioned to the public. The presentations for the foals and broodmares will be held on the outdoor ring "Hannoveraner Arena". The auction will be held both days in the Niedersachsenhalle.
