Speaking of health

vet check

Obligatory vet check riding horses

For each horse the vet certificate is conscientiouslyfilled out by our veterinarian team.

Please convince yourself from the high level of the health check
and – if necessary – have a talk with our veterinarians. Regular inspections during the approval and the training are obvious.

We will be happy to answer any questions you may have about your state of health and the X-rays.

Explanatory Notes on Health and Soundness

Impeccable appearance and outstanding ability alone do not make a Holsteiner auction horse.

Performance is tied to soundness. Knowing this we strive to identify all defects which might impair performance at the earliest possible stage. During the preparatory training in the run-up to the auction, which is also a soundness performance testing, horses displaying any defects are discarded.

4- to 7-year-old Auction Horses

To be actually put to auction all four- to seven-year-old horses must pass three clinical examinations, performance and soundness testing, as well as the routine training checks, with the last clinical examination taking place just before the auction

3-year-old Auction Horses

The three-year-old horses undergo clinical examination upon selection for auction as well as during the short preparatory phase according to a separate clinical examination certificate.

Admission only with positive assessment

In the event of an unfavourable health and soundness examination, the horse in question will not be accepted for auction.

However, questions as to health and soundness tend to offer a wide range of interpretation. Our examinations are carried out in accordance with the most recent scientific findings and evaluation is based on intensive clinical and radiological examinations combined with years of experience in top level competition.

X-rays

The required x-rays (always left and right) include:

  • • front hooves left and right 90° centered on the coffin joint
  • front digit left and right (90°) centered on the fetlock joint
  • overview picture hind digit left and right (90°)
  • tarsal/ hock joint left and right (0°, 45° and 115°)
  • stifle joint left and right 110° and 180°)
  • Oxspring left and right, viewing of the fetlock joint space
  • only the riding horses: 3 x-rays of the spine (thoracic spine and
  • lumbar spine, if possible showing vertebrae)
  • in the equine surgeons’ Clinical Examination Certificate

The slightest suspicion will trigger additional x-rays to be taken
to facilitate interpretation.


Veterinary checks

Since the horses have to undergo regular vet checks during the entire preparatory training, any defects arising from training-associated physical strain can be detected right away. A final veterinary examination is carried out just before the auction in order to guarantee only horses with a clean bill of health will enter the auction ring.
