Holsteiner horse days

    11 to 13 June 2018 at Elmshorn

    The Elmshorn Holsteiner Horse Days will start as early as Monday this year. 
    On 11 June, the first dressage and jumping classes are held in the afternoon, with the first Championship classes held on Tuesday. An additional highlight of the Holsteiner Horse Days, other than the State Championships, the elite mare show, and the foal auction, will be the celebration to mark the opening of the new sand surface arena on Tuesday afternoon.

    Catch_Landeschampion_2017_5-jaehrige_SPRPFFrom 11 to 13 June, combinations compete for the 2018 State Championship in dressage and show jumping at the Holsteiner Horse Days. Many impressive careers, like for example Casall’s, have been launched at Elmshorn: Twelve years ago, the Caretino son had finished 1st in the 6-year-old category. Schleswig-Holstein’s top riders will present their young cracks at the Elmshorn race track, competing for the champion titles.

    Horses may be entered in ridden classes where participants for the Warendorf National Championships are selected, young dressage horse classes at A through M level as well as (young horse) show jumping classes at A, L, M, and S level with horses competing for 5- and 6-year-old State Champion in dressage and 4-, 5-, 6- and 7-year-old State Show Jumping Champion.

    On Wednesday, the best three-year-old Holsteiner mares will be introduced and the champion mare will be announced.

    Also on June 13, the 26 youngsters will be auctioned off at about 1.30pm at the foal auction. You are looking for tomorrow’s future star? Then you should definitely have a closer look at these 26 Holsteiner foals to be sold at auction.

    Six of them are by the Holsteiner studbook’s current figurehead, Casall by Caretino, but five-year-old Catch by Colman is represented by four offspring, as well. Having been part of the Holsteiner foal auction selection himself, Catch has 


    embarked on a picture-book career since: second reserve champion of the stallion grading, two-time winner of the stallion sport test, and winner of young horse jumping classes – like for example last year at the Elmshorn Holsteiner Horse Days. Anticipation is running high for his foals, same as for two offspring each by Livello and Kannan, or the foals by Central Park, Dinken, Diarado, Million Dollar, Uriko and Zinedream.

    Anybody looking for “international blood” may look forward to offspring by Comme il faut, Van Gogh and Clarimo. We cater for Holsteiner dressage horse enthusiasts, as well, with young Quaterback and For Romance daughters to be knocked down by auctioneer Dr. Günther Friemel on 13 June. And, most typical for the Holsteiners, these foals come from proven and consolidated mare families almost without exception.

    But look for yourself!
