200,000 Euros for a Super Oldenburg Col


A la Dressage by Ampere-Sandro Hit was sold at the Elite Foal Auction for 200,000 Euros to a dressage horse lover in Switzerland. The other bidders from Dubai and Germany were left empty-handed. This fabulously moving colt bred by Klaus Tuchen from Grabow/Sachsen-Anhalt charmed the spectators. During the thunderous applause in the auction ring, Uwe Heckmann, the auctioneer, commented, “They don’t come any better – an extraordinary colt out of an exquisite Oldenburg mare line”.

A total of 88 foals were knocked down at the 10th Elite Foal Auction that was held at the Oldenburg Horse Center Vechta, selling for an average price of 12,324 Euros. Total sales achieved the 1,084,500 Euros mark – a new benchmark for this Oldenburg Verband auction.


The second highest price of 90,000 Euros was paid for Tout le Monde by Totilas-Rohdiamant by a new customer from Hanover. This black colt bred by Maike Hinrichsen from Quickborn/Schleswig-Holstein will be raised as a stallion prospect.


Along with the many customers from Germany, international buyers were also very active in Vechta. “We were very pleased that there were so many customers from abroad who appreciate the excellent quality of our foals.  Twenty eight of the foals now have new owners who live outside of Germany, including customers from Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium, Slovenia, Great Britain, Australia, Italy and the US reported Thomas Rhinow, the Director of the auction office. Show jumper fans from Russia were also on a shopping spree. Fabian Kühl, the jumper expert in the auction office and advisor for new customers, purchased eight excellent foals for Oldenburg fans in Moscow who placed their bids by phone.
