Our online business is expanding every year with in 2023 a lot of new online buyers from South America, USA, Canada, Saoudi Arabia, Ireland, Germany, The Netherlands and Switzerland. We welcomed also many regular clients from Qatar, USA, UK, Switzerland, France, Ireland, Germany, Danmark and a new syndicate was born. We think online auctions create equal opportunities for every client world wide.
Besides our three exclusive online auctions we also sold foals, embryos, mares and stallions to clients world wide thoughout the entire year. Grand Prix Sales has a great network of reliable sellers. We know the damlines and horses and the stable management of our sellers. Quality always comes first and we always want the best for the best.
First references are coming
We started our online business in 2020. The first great references are out there! Pinacolada van Seldsum (Dominator Z), the first jumping foal we selected for our first auction, was the KWPN Stallion test winner in 2023. The Premium dressage stallion Pablo Picasso (Glock’s Taminiau) is also approved for KWPN and Riverdale P (Glamourdale) is approved for Westfalen in 2023.
We are looking forward to a new auction year in 2024. We wish our clients, sellers, our staff and all involved a happy horsey new year and a lot of succes in 2024.
