Jul 08, 2019 - De Wolden Summer Sale: the start for many international stars


In 2007 Jan Broek, VDL Stud and HBC Stal set up the first edition of De Wolden Summer Sale; an auction with strictly selected showjumpers and promising foals. Over the years, De Wolden Summer Sale has become a strong name in the equestrian world and ever since the auction has been a part of the international show Concours Hippique De Wolden. And it has been successful: almost 60 percent of all foals and sporthorses sold are classified at international level and more than 60 horses are already competing at 1.40m level or higher.



More and more former auction sporthorses and / or foals of De Wolden Summer Sale are breaking through at the highest level. Etos HBC (Cantos x Kroongraaf) made his appearance this year at several Global Champions Tour competitions, ridden by both Ibrahim Bisharat and Abdel Saïd. Colarde E (Chacco Blue x Voltaire) put himself on the map once again with Tom Sanders by debuting at 1.60m level in Nörten-Hardenberg. In addition, Cicomein VDL (Chacco Blue x Jus de Pomme) and Jonas Vervoort delivered some outstanding results at Spruce Meadows, Calgary.

Other international stars of De Wolden Summer Sale are for example Zilversprings (Elizabeth Gingras CAN), Estoril de Vardag (Ahmed Mansour JOR), Cavarola (Christopher Surbey CAN & Ben Asselin CAN), Adamo (1.60m, Chloe Reid USA & Molly Ashe Cawley USA ), Eleganto (Robbert Ehrens NED & Sophia Siegel USA), Biallon (Tina Yates USA), Bling Bling (Eion McMahon IRL & Abdullah Al Sharbatly KSA), Valdato G (Julia Kayser AUT & Cara Raether USA), Benibantos (Alireza Bakhtiari IRI ) and Another Pleasure (Robert Vos NED & Peter Geerink NED).


Comeback of Tatjana

One of the most successful showjumpers out of the first edition in 2007 is without a doubt Tatjana (Niagara x Damiro). After the auction, Lebanon’s Karim Fares took over the reins of  Tatjana and achieved many great successes at Grand Prix level. They competed at the world-class horse show of Spruce Meadows, Calgary, finished 5th in the Grand Prix of Zuidwolde in 2012 and jumped in the Grand Prix competitions of Eindhoven, Moorsele, De Steeg, Roosendaal, et cetera.

This year, Tatjana will return to De Wolden Summer Sale; obviously not as an auction horse, but as the dam of one of the auction foals. Colt Oranje Royale is a son of the extremely successful Tatjana and with Oranje Royale being selected for De Wolden Summer Sale Tatjana will make her comeback.  Oranje Royale was bred by showjumper Karim Fares himself, who runs his own stable in Veeningen. Oranje Royale is a son of the Grand Prix showjumping stallion Urano de Cartigny, who is successful with the French rider Felicie Bertrand.


Wednesday presentation, Saturday auction

15 highly interesting showjumping foals and 10 extremely talented showjumpers will be auctioned on Saturday, July 13 from around 7 p.m. at the 13th edition of De Wolden Summer Sale.

Jul 07, 2017 - After ten successful auctions the WSS-horses keep on performing at the highest level

The showjumpers and foals of De Wolden Summer Sale are making their breakthrough over and over again at the international level. Last year, Zilversprings caught the eyes with the Canadian rider Elizabeth Gingras, while this year Christopher Surbey and the Corland-mare Cavarola are a new exciting pair at five-star level. Cavarola was the top-seller of De Wolden Summer Sale in 2011. This year’s auction collection includes again highly talented showjumpers and interesting foals.


The percentage of international showjumpers out of the previous years of De Wolden Summer Sale is still remarkable; over fifty percent of the 7-year-old or older auction horses is performing at 1.35m-level or higher. Last year Zilversprings was the most exciting example of a successful Wolden Summer Sale-horse. Ridden by Elizabeth Gingras, the son of Silverstone was very close to securing a ticket for the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro and caught the eyes at five-star shows like Spruce Meadows and Gijon. In Calgary, Spruce Meadows, Zilversprings finished as the runner-up in the five-star Grand Prix in July and in Gijon, Team Canada won the Nations Cup and Zilversprings contributed with a double clear result.


Breakthrough Cavarola

However, in 2017 another Canadian pair with a WSS-horse have made their breakthrough at the highest level. The 10-year-old Cavarola (Corland x Wellington) showed off some impressive results with the Canadian rider Christopher Surbey. In Wellington, ‘s-Hertogenbosch and Spruce Meadows the grey mare proved her potential, with the victory in a five-star class in Spruce Meadows as a highlight so far.

The Lupicor-son Adamo has made a change of riders recently and is now competing with the young USA-talent Chloe Reid. The 12-year-old gelding has been successfully competed by Abigail McArdle, but recently Chloe Reid took over the reins. At their debut in Arnhem, the pair finished fourth in one of the three-star classes. The past months, Adamo was also successfully ridden by American riders Marilyn Little and Molly Ashe.


Interesting foals

The 2017 auction collection includes great talent again. For example, foals by the Grand Prix-showjumpers Zirocco Blue VDL, Corporal and Glasgow van ‘t Merelsnest will be auctioned. But also the promising sires I’m Special de Muze and Falaise de Muze will be represented by some offspring. Foals by the top sires Douglas and Cornet Obolensky and by the young stallions Impressive VDL and Hardwell will be auctioned as well.


Eye-catching collection of showjumpers

The collection of showjumpers consists 5- and 6-year-olds this year and all of them have a great potential. A well-known member of the collection is for example the Cantos-son Genua, who won the GMB-competition for young horses this year in Drachten. Earlier on, the gelding secured the second place in the GMB-final in 2016 and won a class for 5-year-olds in Geesteren. The other 6-year-olds out of this year’s collection are the mighty Gold Finger (s. Carrera VDL), the scopey and uncomplicated Gringo (s. Phin Phin), the quality mare Grace (s. Spartacus) and the stunning and talented Gindependence J.W.B. (s. Baltic VDL) out of the damline of Bugatti VDL, Southwind VDL and Freeman VDL.


Strong group of 5-year-olds

The group of 5-year-olds is highly talented as well. For example Huub HBC (s. Charisma), who finished as the runner-up in the GMB-finals with a 9 for jumping and rideability. Or Hiphop (s. Dakar VDL) – a talented showjumper with a great rideability and balance. Hiphop is not only a talented showjumper, but might also be an excellent equitation prospect. There is also the quality mare Himara (s. Indoctro), who scored 8’s in her mare test of the KWPN and stands out due to her reflexes. In conclusion, the collection includes Harley (s. Tygo) – a talented half-brother of Chinook, the runner-up of the Grand Prix of Sankt Gallen – and the Dallas VDL-son Happyboera, who thanks to his scope and attitude could not only be an interesting prospect for a professional, but also for an amateur rider.

Jul 06, 2016 - Wolden Summer Sale-auctioned Zilversprings in contention to go to Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games

After nine successful editions of the Wolden Summer Sale, the number of international showjumpers sold at this auction continues to grow every year. And there could be an Olympic showjumper added to this list of sport horses! Canada’s Elizabeth Gingras and the Wolden Summer Sale-sold Zilversprings (Silverstone x Emilion) are in contention for a spot in the Canadian showjumping team for the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro next month. 

Back in 2010, the then 6-year-old Zilversprings was auctioned at the Wolden Summer Sale. The grey gelding, bred by D.M. Leistra, was spotted on an early age by Wolden Summer Sale organizers and selectors Jan Schep, Jan Broek and Wiepke van de Lageweg. In 2014, Zilversprings made his international breakthrough ridden by Switzerland’s Alain Jufer. Shortly after, Canada’s Elizabeth Gingras – student of former Olympic champion Eric Lamaze – took over the reins of Zilversprings. With great success, since it did not take long before the first international victories of the pair were a fact. In 2014, Zilversprings and Gingras won the Grand Prix of Calgary and in 2015, they were also victorious in the Grand Prix of Coapexpan. This year, the son of Silverstone already finished fourth in a prestigious 1.55m class at Spruce Meadows, Calgary. 

But Zilversprings is not the only highly successful showjumper auctioned at the Wolden Summer Sale. Both the auction foals as the showjumpers are successful at every international level. Famous horses like Another Pleasure (Robert Vos and Peter Geerink), Benibantos (Alireza Famil Bakthiari), Bling Bling (Abdullah Al Sharbatly and Eoin McMahon), Valdato (Julia Kayser and Cara Reather) and Tatjan (Karim Fares) have been publicly well-known for a long time already, but some new exceptional sport horses have made their international appearances as well.  Take for instance the KWPN-approved Dantos HBC (Cantos x Numero Uno) who impresses under the saddle of Dutch rider Willem Greve, or Eurohill’s Alcatraz (Heartbreaker x Polydox), who won the Grand Prixs of Wierden, Hardenberg and Vragender with Great Britain’s Mark Bunting. Besides of those great showjumpers, we should also mention Adamo, sired by Lupicor, who performs at 1.60m Grand Prix level with USA’s Abigail Mc Ardle and earlier on was ridden by Syria’s Shady Ghrayeb. Also Coral Reef Aajee competes successfully at Grand Prix level with the American rider Ann Knight Karrasch. A remarkable horse as well is Balans Rv (Cardento x Emilion), who ridden by Hillary McNerney won international competitions in both Brussels and Los Angeles last year and also took a victory in Eindhoven this year.

Next to these successful showjumpers, we should also mention some promising talents, like Cicomein (Chacco Blue x Jus de Pomme) who performs at 1.50m level with Japan’s Taizo Sugitani, Biallon H (Indoctro x Wisconsin) who is making its international breakthrough with Tina Yates-Di Landri, Etos HBC (Cantos x Kroongraaf) who competes at 1.40m level with Yasser Al Sharif while he is only 7-years-old, Cavarola (Corland x Wellington) who delivers clear round after clear round at Spruce Meadows with Canada’s Chris Surbey, et cetera. Not only successful showjumpers were sold at the Wolden Summer Sale. The eventing horse Ardenco, sired by Cardento, won ridden by Belgium’s Vincent Martens the CIC2* of Helvoirt, finished econd in the CIC2* of Breda and third in the CIC2* of Barocca d’Alva, Portugal. As a 5-year-old, Ardenco became Belgian champion of the eventing horses. As a hunter, Bunistar (Unistar x Casimir) has been highly successful with Hugh Mutch. Earlier this year, Bunistar won the 100.000 US dollar ‘Handy Round’ at the international hunter Derby on HITS Thermal. 

The percentage of successful showjumpers sold at the Wolden Summer Sale increases every year. Over 50 procent (!) of the 7-year-old or older sport horses sold through the auction are currently competing at 1.35m-level or higher! There is no doubt this year’s collection has included some future international superstars. On Saturday the 16th of July, the auction will take place from 7:00 PM at the show grounds of CSI De Wolden in Veeningen. Nine carefully selected showjumping foals and ten extremely talented, well educated showjumpers will be auctioned. On Thursday the 14th of July, the presentation of the sport horses will take place from 5:00 PM, while the presentation of the foals will be held on Saturday the 16th of July from 5:00 PM.
