More than 1 million...
The 2018 edition of Woodland's enters the history books as a record edition. Up to now, the most expensive horse sold was Julyssi Van Orti (Cicero Z van Paemel), who finished fifth last week in the CSI5* Grand Prix in Oslo. This gray mare raised 165,000 euros in 2015 and this year the organization managed to obtain this amount effortlessly again, even better: they did it twice!
Nogana van het Peggershof (Ogano Sitte x Leader M) immediately set the tone as the fourth horse in the ring where she moved to Switzerland for 166,000 euros after a heavy bid duel. But the success of Peggershof & Woodland's did not stop there ... A few horses later the Ogano Sitte stallion Livingstone from the Peggershof was knocked off for 165,000 euros. He will appear in the ring under the Turkish flag in the future. The rest of the buyers also came from all corners of the world: Denmark, the Netherlands, Norway, Germany, Belgium, the United States, ... And as icing on the cake: many buyers from the past made another purchase this year and it is exactly that confidence that gives the organisers the greatest pleasure!
In addition to the ridden horses, the three foals also sold well. Dynamiet DC Z (Diamant de Semilly) changed from owner for 22,000 euros while the embryo out of the dam line of Gatoucha van 't Roosakker was the most expensive with 19,000 euros.
In total, the entire auction raised no less than 1,060,000 euros! That brings the average price for the riding horses to just under 57.500 euros.
