Press release Holsteiner Verband – The Elmshorn Holsteiner Horse Days and the foal auction are a must on the equine calendar of breed and performance enthusiasts. In the second week of June, riders, breeders, and friends of the Holsteiner horse meet at the Holsteiner Verband facility, where the Holsteiner Horse Days are held.
Elite mare show
Even with the mare inspections in the breeding districts still ahead by deadline, breed director Dr.Thomas Nissen has already had a first impression of the age group born in 2013, as several mares likely to earn a ticket to Elmshorn at the mare inspections have been performance tested. “The age group is again promising some exceptionally typey mares and many horses with great movement.” Mares by Casall and his sons, Cascadello I and Casalito, have made quite a splash in the performance tests. Former National Champion Catoo seems to confirm his qualities as a sire, as well. Young sires like Uriko should be represented with female offspring at the mare show same as outside blood improvement stallion Zhivago, a stallion those breeding for dressage put high hopes in. The best 3-year-old mares of the country are shown on the triangle on 8 June, and at about noon we will know who is to succeed last year’s exceptional champion mare, Elypsa by TB sire Armand.
