The top-priced horse at the Verden Auction Online in July was Saint Jacques, for whom the virtual hammer fell at 56,500 Euros. After the ten-day auction period in Verden, which was used by numerous interested parties to try out their dream horse, an average of 20,205 Euros had to be paid for the 56 young talents. This is the highest mark achieved so far at an auction in July.


Trying out at the Niedersachsenhall at your leisure and then bidding from the comfort of your own home. A new customer from Hamburg did just that and showed stamina. A total of twelve bidders were interested in the Scolari/Weltmeyer son Saint Jacques (breeder and exhibitor: Jochen Meyer, Allwörden), who is 1.72 m tall. High-class genes were laid into his cradle. Two siblings of the bay have already arrived in the dressage arena and are successful in Grand Prix and Inter II. After 83 bids extended the bid up again and again, Saint Jacques finally found his new owner for 56,500 Euros.


The Gentleman/Fly High son Globetrotter (breeder and exhibitor: Horst Heidemann, Meppen) was sold for 28,000 Euros. This made the responsive, large-framed bay the most expensive jumper in the collection. He is in good hands, the regular customers from Hesse have already discovered numerous top-class horses in Verden and brought them into the sport.


To buy horses directly at the source without having to be on site and to be advised competently and confidentially – that is what many international customers appreciate. 34 horses will leave Germany. Nine horses are going to the United States, five to Finland and four to France. The average price of 20,205 Euros, about 4,000 Euros more than last year, is by far the highest price ever achieved at a Verden auction in July.
