A sensational result with impressive, honest figures, which both Ponyforum GmbH and the exhibitors are equally pleased about.
„It was not easy to put together such an extraordinary collection. All the more reason for us to thank the sellers of these exceptional dressage ponies: A.T. Schurf, Simone Visser, Juliane Kraus and Jasmin and Hermann Gerdes!
It was their trust in us and their enthusiasm for this new event format that made this huge success possible!“ said Sales Manager Eckhard Scharf from Ponyforum GmbH.
The collection generated customer inquiries throughout Europe.
For example, the stallion Damaszener K WE, one of the two top prizes at € 60,000.00, will in future be at home with a very young rider in the Netherlands.

The six-year-old stallion, descended from Dimension AT NRW / FS Champion de Luxe, was bred by Hermann Koopmeiners in the Weser Ems breeding area. Via the Ponyforum Stallion Days, the stallion with the significant pedigree became the property of the stallion station A.T. Schurf, where he was used at stud and successfully trained under saddle. Under Jaqueline Schurf, he was highly placed in the finals of the Bundeschampionate.
The six-year-old stallion Downtown Abbey by D-Power AT / Mozart also earned €60,000.00. The six-year-old stallion was bred in the Westphalian breeding area by Britta Lübbers, he has already won the Westphalian State Championships in Münster twice and was also highly placed in the final of the Bundeschampionate. The impressive dark bay harmonized sensationally with a young FEI rider from Munich and will be further supported by her in the future.
Regular customers from Baden-Württemberg secured the eight-year-old Vice Licensing Champion and HLP Champion Global Champion WE from Simone Visser’s Weser-Ems breeding at the knockdown price of €55,500.00. He is by Golden West NRW / Power and paint and has already been successful in medium (M) level dressage tests under his trainer Anna von Negri. He will now be presented in dressage tests under 13-year-old Anna-Maria Locher!

The Weser Ems mare Chilli San WE, a typey daughter of Hesselteich’s Golden Dream / Black Dancer bred by Sonja and Jürgen Sander, can be used immediately in the FEI tour at the age of seven and changed hands for €33,500.00. Chilli San WE won the bronze medal at the State Championships in Rastede and took 6th place in the final of the Bundeschampionate. Her owner Juliane Kraus has already promoted the pony under the dressage saddle and her new eleven-year-old rider from Lower Saxony will soon be able to take off in the dressage arena!
The youngest pony in the collection will move to Spain: the five-year-old gelding Venustas Dunalino, descended from Double Delight / Dancing Fox B. The likeable dun was Vice State Champion in Hanover and has already won and placed in tests for young riding horses. He was bred in the Hanoverian breeding area by Sandra Petersen out of a highly successful dam line and has now been sold by his owner and trainer Jasmin Gerdes to Spanish customers for € 30,000.00.

After this success, it goes without saying that another „Time for champions“ auction is planned to take place in October. Once again, a small but very exclusive and top-class collection of dressage ponies will be on offer!
