    By the way: Horse's health

     

    A brilliant appearance and outstanding talents only are not sufficient for being a Holsteiner auction horse. Performance is connected with the health standard which can change from day to day. Therefore, we try hard to discover any performance diminishing defects early. During the preparation for the auction, which at the same time is a health performance test, all horses showing any defects are eliminated. Only horses that passed all the three clinical examinations, the performance and health test as well as the steady training controlling will be allowed in the auction. The last clinical examination will take place just before the auction.


    However, the horse’s health is rather individual and is judged differently. Our examinations are effected in accordance with the latest scientific findings. Our judgement is based on an intensive clinic and radiological examination combined with years of experience in the top sport.


    The following x-rays were done:
    • both front digits (0° and 90°)
    • both hind digits (90°)
    • both hock joints (0°, 45° a. 115°)
    • both stifle joints (110°)
    • x-rays of the spine (only dressage horses)

    In the case of a slightest suspect additional x-rays
    will be taken for a better interpretation.


    The vertebral column will not be examined by x-rays
    due to the insufficient diagnostic possibilities and ability of interpretation. Of course an intensive clinical examination will be done.


    During the whole training-time the horses are permanently vet-checked so that any arising defects due to physical stress may be recognized immediately. Before transporting the auction candidates to Neumünster a final veterinary examination will be done, so that it is guaranteed that only those horses will come to the auction that fulfill our health demands.
