35th Holsteiner Spring Auction Sale Rescheduled for 25 April

The 35th Holsteiner spring auction sale had to be rescheduled due to the outbreak with equid herpesvirus 1 (EHV-1) in Valencia, Spain. The German Equestrian Federation (FN) has cancelled all breed and horse shows until the end of March. Holsteiner Verband marketing and auction GmbH executives have responded immediately by rescheduling the auction sale along with all related events.

Sport test for stallions in Elmshorn

You will find further information on our website soon.
Herpes - Management at Holsteiner Verband Stallion Stations

Due to the increased number of herpes infections following the recent outbreak in Valencia the German Equestrian Federation FN advises against bringing together horses from different stables in order to prevent further spreading of the herpes virus.
However, after prior notification and following a clinical examination upon arrival, mares fully vaccinated against influenza and herpes can still be stabled at a Verband station (please have the equine passport ready for checking). While mares with inadequate immunisation protection can be taken to the stations to have their follicles checked and for insemination, they must leave the station immediately afterwards to prevent any contact with other mares.

First station test in 2021: best mare with 10 for willingness to perform

From 9 to 23 February, the first station test for three-year-old mares took place in Elmshorn this year. Besides the evaluation of the basic gaits, the rideability and the free jumping, also interior characteristics, which are summarised as a mark for the characteristic "willingness to perform and handling", are part of the test. One of the 18 mares that participated in this test received the highest score of 10 for her willingness to perform and handling.
Two mares were also able to change owners during the station test. "Thus, this event has proven to be a pontential marketing opportunity", summarises Managing Director Roland Metz with satisfaction.
The 2nd test will take place from 28 April to 12 May.
You can register your mare for the one-day field tests, which will also take place in Elmshorn, as of now. For the first time, five-year-old Holstein mares can also participate.
