The 38th P.S.I. Auction brought a total sum of 14.635.000 on December 3rd at the P.S.I. Sport and Auction Center in Ankum. “That was an exceptional auction” mentioned Ulli Kasselmann and Paul Schockemöhle added “Quality is honored”.

Both were satisfied, because Zum Glück was lucky in the lot – the 4-year-old Zonik-Florestan I-son earned a knock down price of 850.000 Euros, and with that, the highest price at Performance Sales International. The extra large Oldenburg stallion is an “exceptional horse” and not only Ulli Kasselmann thought that. “Zum Glück was highly coveted by our international clients.” The RS2 Dressage Center in the Netherlands will be his new home.

This year’s catalogue number two, the four-year-old Fürstenball-Don Crusador-daughter Florette earned the second highest price of 700.000 Euros. The Hanoverian mare was already described in the catalogue as “Fashion diva of the highest quality”. Her new owner, Harmony Sport Horses from the USA, was already successful in finding a horse at the P.S.I. in 2012 – then, they got the stallion Harmony’s Don Noblesse who has been highly successful in interntional Grand Prix tests under Susan Pape.

Two of the horses out of Paul Schockemöhle’s jumping collection also changed hands for 700.000 Euros. The first was the 7-year-old dark bay mare Cha Mu from Cornado II x Rheinsberg and the other was the 6-year-old Toulon-Grundymann xx-daughter Columbcille Gipsy. “Cha Mu is a ‘finished’ horse to ride off on”, explained Paul Schockemöhle. “I am sure that the mare will play a role in international top sport very soon.”

The LEE equestrian sport and breeding company and Patrick Döller are surely looking forward to this, as they can now call themselves the new owner and rider of this charming Westphalian. Columbcille Gipsy entered the auction ring today with all the best qualifications; he earned the gold medal for 6-year-old jumping horses at the World Championships for Young Horses at Zangersheide in 2017. The Houston family from Leichlingen, Germany secured this promising World Champion for themselves.

A total of 47 horses were sold at the 38th P.S.I. Auction – the dressage horses brought a total of 6.060.000 Euros and the average price was 252.500 Euros and the jumping collection brought in a total of 8.575.00 Euros and the average was 375.826,09 Euros.
