Watching the best horses of their age group, strolling, chatting – the Holsteiner horse days at Elmshorn on 10 -13 June 2021 are going to provide an opportunity for doing all this again for about 250 visitors. Moreover, friends of the Holsteiner horse might leave the Elmshorn Verband facility or the online portal owning a new carefully selected foal bought at the hybrid auction sale on Saturday 12 June, as 27 lots with excellent bloodlines are put to auction on Saturday evening beginning 7 o’clock.

The timetable

These are by sires with proven sport and stud performance like Casall, Cascadello I or Million Dollar or by emerging young stallions like for example Cahil, Charaktervoll, Keaton and Cornet’s Quaprice. And the collection selected by head of marketing Roland Metz and his team also caters to dressage enthusiasts and riders as three bright prospects for a future career in the dressage arena are put up for sale. They are by Franziskus and Fidano. “Since our Holsteiner breeders have been attaching great importance on maintaining and selectively breeding the dam lines, many of the dams boast high own performance over generations”, Roland Metz knows. Like for example hip no 4, Ultimo by Uriko-Cassini I. His second dam, Fair Lady by Lord, has produced several sport horses successful to international 1.60m level and his dam Utah’s own performance includes placings to 1.30m. Hip no 11, Caretana by Cornet’s Quaprice - Caretino, also comes from an outstanding dam line: her dam, N-Caretana BB used to collect ribbons at 1.50m level herself, and the produce of her second dam, Bravo, includes the licensed stallion Caretano Z as well as O-Contendra, in her turn dam to the licensed stallion Chaka Chaka (Janne Friederike Meyer-Zimmermann), who won the championship of Balve just recently. Performance records of the foals’ relatives down to the fourth generation are available for viewing on

Hybrid auction sale – how does it work?
The auction sale of high quality foals on the occasion of the horse days has already become well-established and has proved a valuable marketing platform in the past. Same as in 2020, executive director and auction manager Roland Metz and his team have decided for a hybrid auction sale, which means that prospective buyers can place their bids live on site as well as online or on the telephone.
