08.12.2011 All tracks already covered…

For months we've been working for this one day ... now my seventh sport horse sales is already one week over and all tracks are covered.
The preparations for the event began at the beginning of the year with the selection of horses and especially during the recent months and weeks they became more intensive and concrete.
Now, one week after the event, the tents are already taken down, some of the auction horses left the stable and the mood in the stable is controlled by a satisfied quietness.
The auction last week was a great success and more successful than ever before.
The whole team around me did a great job. I would like to thank all involved parties- everyone was always motivated, worked with enormous pleasure and made an important contribution to the success!

 

02.12.2011 First horses left the stable...

Directly one day after the auction the first horse was picked up by his new owner.
I'm looking forward to hear about the first results of the horses and hope that the youngsters are developing well at their new home. Again congratulations the the new owners, have fun with your new sport partners!

01.12.2011 Former records broken

The seventh sport horse sales of Holger Hetzel was a great success. All 17 youngsters have found a new owner and were sold for the fantastic amount of 2 Million Euro in total. The average price was 117.000 €- this means it was the most successful auction till now, because last year the average price was 4.000€. The most expensive horse was the seven year old gelding “Mojito”, bought by Jürgen Stenfert (IRL) for 300.000€.
At 5.30 p.m. Carsten Soestmeier and Holger Hetzel presented the auction horses for the last time. The horses were ridden by rider of the stable and commented by the two horsemen. At 9 p.m. auctioneer Volker Raulf went to his auction-desk and opened this year's event.

 

In order to give potential buyers a little warmup, Holger Hetzel has made ​​a special auction candidate again. And like last year a colt (Numero Uno x Waitaki) was sold for UNESCO- “Education for Children in Need”. The colt was auctioned for an exceptional amount of 14.000€, so Dr. hrs. Ute-Henriette Ohoven was very happy when she received the cheque for the foundation.
In her acceptance speech she said, the money was meant for needy children in Africa, "and this will also save lives”

 

A lot of famous persons from all over the world attend the auction personally, like Clarissa Crotta, Markus Fuchs, Willi Melliger (SUI), Denis Lynch (IRL) and Mario Stevens.
Two more vicitours have been very successful at this evening- the sponsors of Janne-Frederike Meyer (Gold-medal winner during the WEG 2010 with the team and team European Champion 2011) bought the horses Ready to win and Tinka’s Queen and Chris Kappler (USA, Winner at Olympic Games), got the horse Peter Lustig.
Three horses were bought by people from the Switzerland, two Luxembourg, two Russia and one Turkey.

Before the real auction starts tomorrow, we will make a special auction- a good deed for the heart! A promising foal with a brilliant pedigree (Numero Uno x Waitaki) will be auctioned for the foundation UNESCO- “Education for Children in Need”. The money in it’s totality will be donated to the foundation, which has been standing up for poor children since 1992, providing them with school and vocational education for a brighter future.
The check will be received by Ute-Henriette Ohoven. She is only one of the prominent guests who will follow the event live in Goch. All interested people are welcome to visit this exclusive event, which is characterized by the pleasant atmosphere, professional organisation and exceptional horses.

The collection of my 7th sport horse sales presents strong selected horses aged four to eight, which are already since a few weeks at my stable for training.

15.11.2011 Fourth in Grand Prix

Last weekend Little Tinka (half brother of auction horse “Tinka’s Queen”) once again showed that he is currently in excellent shape. In the Grand Prix of Oldenburg it was not difficult for me to show nice rounds in the saddle of the grey gelding. Both the first rounds as well as the jump-off were great- Little Tinka jumped fantastically well and was double clear. At the end we became fourth in this main class of the international three star show in Oldenburg.
A great side effect: Through this placement, we qualified for the final of the Master League in Frankfurt from 15th till 18th December 2011!

08.11.2011 Clear rounds in Sonsbeck

Nom de Guerre and Christine 

Although our main focus currently is directed to the sport horse sales, we took the opportunity to compete at the show in Sonsbeck. The organizer developed a very good schedule, which attracted a lot of rider. The riders of my stable showed many clear rounds and can be very satisfied, even if they were not placed in all classed because of the large number of competitors- better a nice clear round than a hasty round without a nice style.

 

Marilena und Lavazza  Equimago

Christine and Nom de Guerre, seven year old gelding by Eurocommerce Napels, showed a nice clear round in the M* class. Daniel rode Quinte (7 year old mare by Quidam’s Rubin) in the same class and was also without faults.
Ricarda Tippkötter got the first place in a M*-class with her gelding Aronjo and was faultless in a L class with the young mare Aska.
Carolin Becker and Loreen were placed in a M *- class.
Marilena Schuhmacher and the six year old mare Lavazza finished clear in a L-class.

 

08.11.2011 Katrin second at DKB Riders Tour final

Katrin and Carlson 

Katrin Eckermann- shooting star of the year! My former apprentice became second in the final of the DKB Riders Tour. After phenomenal performances during this season at major shows such as Münster, Paderborn, Donaueschingen and Hanover the 21-year-old Amazon showed her talent again: last weekend Katrin continued her fabulous form at the four star show in Munich. The young rider showed again spectacular rounds at the “Munich Indoors” and at the end she became second in the final behind the world-class rider Ludger Beerbaum. She just barely missed the win-sensational!

 

After fantastically clear rounds in the qualification on Saturday she delivered the second clear on the well jumping Carlson and released her happiness when crossing the finish line to wild cheers from the home crowds. It looked good for Katrin who with a top three placing could hunt down Ludger Beerbaum’s overall lead in the tour when he opened the ball with two down on Gotha.
Unfortunately she hit the first fence in the jump-off , became (fabulous) seventh in the Grand Prix but was not able to steal Ludger the title “Rider of the year”.
She was about to make the sensation perfect, but the second rank is more than brilliant! Congratulaions for this success, Katrin!

 

03.11.2011 "Jumping Princess" victorious

Jumping Princess 

Auction horse “Jumping Princess” has proven her show jumping talent again: Yesterday the six years-old mare won a young horse class L (“Springpferdeprüfung Klasse L”) and became fourth in a young horse class M* (Springpferdeprüfung Klasse M*). Again two ribbons results for the young princess, who is already victorious in youngster classes on international three star shows. A future super star!

Only the world’s best riders competed in this class, the twelve best riders of the discipline based on the FEI Rolex world seeding, as well as the current World Champion. The highly talented mare and Ludger became seventh in this class, one of the two major classes during the 5* show.

On Saturday the young Amazon rode her first L-class with Dancing Dream and demonstrated again a sovereign round: score of 7.0 and fifth place!

04.07.2011 "Nachwuchschampionat" powered by EQUIVA

Winner Tim Birckenstaedt  www.psvr.de

With a score of 8.5 Pia-Marie Schröder and Timberland (by Numero Uno) finished the first class of the "Holger Hetzel junior Championships powered by EQUIVA" in Langenfeld last Friday. With this score the pair became second in this class. After an unfortunately less successful Saturday, on Sunday Pia and Timberland were back in top form in the Final and finished third in the M *- class with jump-off.
In the final class of the this championship, Pia unfortunately "scraped" with a dot spacing on a podium over and was fourth. Nevertheless, the young Amazon had reason to celebrate: Pia got the special prize for the best style, which is a very important and commendable ceremony. Congratulations!
I would like to congratulate winner, Tim Birckensteadt, which generated Pepe with his horse in all three competitions a steady performance. The finale, an M *- jumping with jump, won the talent with his bay gelding, which Tim did his triumph perfectly. A well-deserved success for the riders from the Riding Club Würselen, who must now look for a sponsorship deal with EQUIVA. Similarly, the best pairs of the Finals will be invited to a training course with me, where then are seen more talent to promote.
My thanks go out on this journey of Arno Dormann, CEO of EQUIVA that supports the highly vigorous championship as a sponsor.

 

Pia-Marie Schröder and Timberland 

Students fit for 2011My students developed also very well. For example Pia-Marie Schröder who won the most important class for Rhenish junior riders during the Salut-Festival in Aachen two weeks ago. In the final she scored 8.5 for her style giving her the title. A special fact is her four legged partner Timberland- Pia-Marie’s parents bought the seven years old at the Auction 2009 and since that moment the young pair has made a great development which was rewarded with victories in International Amateur classes on international CSI-Shows. Beside Pia-Marie my other students have had also great success, which confirms my team and I in our work. In my opinion sensible training and the exercise of the basics for the young riders is a very important for achieving an international top-level.

 

04.07.2011 Christine is the best women

The three jumping classes at the Rhenish Championships for senior riders were very difficult and mixed the general standings after each round. Difficult lines and high jumps for the riders made ​​it a real task to obtain the title of the "Rhenish Champion".
One of the youngest participants in the starting field was Christine, who saddled the ten year old gelding Aaron. In the first qualification the pair had only one time fault. On Sunday, Christine and Aaron showed a great round, Christine rode with a perfect style and Aaron jumped with much power and scope. They became fifth in this S*** class with two rounds and finished seventh in the overall standings. Although her ​​top horse Tourbillon van de Zuidhoek stayed in the stable- a remarkable achievement!

 

04.07.2011 Virginia gets ticket

Also the six-year-old mare Virginia was able to get a ticket for the Federal Championships in Warendorf. The daughter of Chilento impressed the judges under the saddle of Frederic Tillmann in the qualification at the show in Langenfeld.

At the auction in 2010 the beautiful mare was purchased with the name "Big little lady" by family Theelen and since that time the highly talented youngster shows an exemplary development. Daniela Theelen was recently honored as the "Rhenish Champion” of the junior rider, the young horse qualifies for the National Championships, - if that's not a good omen ... Congratulations!
Virginia is next Companiero the second horse of the last year's collection which could qualify for the National Championships.

 

Team Holger Hetzel 

This was 2010…
It is certain that this year wouldn’t have been so successful without the faithful cooperation from our numerous satisfied clients. But- to keep in mind- also the team around me is indispensable and the basis for every positive result: for the unproblematic processing of the daily work, the presentation of the horses on national and international shows and the successful sale.

 

04.07.2011 Lord Nobel and Jones victorious

Lord Nobel 

Lord Nobel(auction horse in 2010) and his rider Jonas Ossenberg-Engels grow more and more together as a team and have been rewarded for the work of recent months: The pair won in Balve in a M * class with a score of 8.4. What a great success! In addition, the couple showed at the “Märkisch championships” in Letmathe two faultless rounds in M *- classes last weekend. In one class they got the blue ribbon for the fourth place.
Lantana performed also in Balve and was placed ninth in the Springpferdeprüfung Klasse
L and finished fifth in a Springpferdeprüfung KlasseM with rider Felicitas Erfurt.

 

01.07.2011 Companiero victorious in qualification

Companiero and Daniel  Equimago

Exceptional… The small gelding Companiero showed again all his quality and scope. In Langenfeld, venue of the Rhenish Championships 2011, the five year old son of Candillo won the “warm up”, a Springpferdeprüfung Klasse L with the score of 8.1. In the Springpferdeprüfung Klasse M, qualification for the Federal Championships of young horses, Companiero and his rider Daniel were able to improve their performance and were scored with an 8.4. The pair won this class and qualified again (after the show in Sevelen the second time) for the big event for young horses in Warendorf. What a brilliant confirmation for horse and rider!
In the auction catalogue 2010 we described the youngster already with the words “Dream type, dream character, dream qualities” as well as “exceptional talent combined with a winning-heart make this horse a worthwhile investment for tomorrow’s courses”. The name accordingly: Jackpot. Since the auction the gelding confirms all these predictions and revealed round after round his exceptional talent and his enormous willingness to perform. This is an example that the size of the horse does not matter if the character is well. I’m very pleased that this young horse develops so exemplary and I am excited to see where his path leads yet!

 

28.06.2011 Rhenish Championships

Next weekend, the dressage and show jumpers and vaulters compete at Gut Langford in Langenfeld for the coveted green-white regional champion sashes and medals.
The main focus for me lies on my work as national association coach of the junior and young riders, who I will support and watch over the weekend to make possible nominations.
Also the "Holger Hetzel Nachwuchs-Championat Junioren Springen" will be held for the third time during the Rhenish Championships. This exciting championship for junior rider (born 1995 and later) is sponsored by the company EQUIVA.
I'm curious what insights this weekend will bring in terms of the Rhenish youngsters.

Furthermore Christine rode the seven year old Nom de Guerre in the international "Lady classes". The son of Eurocommerce Napels showed absolutely great performances on the big, colorful show ground and jumped great in all courses. In one competition, the pair was rewarded with a second place for faultless rounds.

Since 8 days we are at the Arezzo Equestrian Centre to compete with 17 horses at the Tuscany Tour (ITA).

This is why so many riders are here- per class up to 150 horses!

Under the saddle of Christine the mare was placed twice in classes for six year old horses. I rode Lanzarote in a 1.45m class of the Gold Tour and because of a clear round the gelding was placed.  With Louisa, an eleven year old mare of Limbus, I was placed seventh in an international class with 137 competitors. Furthermore I was able to place Micmac de Bance (by Urbain du Monnai) in an international class.

At the sport horse sales 2010 the mare „Full of hope“ was bought by the „Niederrhein Investmentgroup“ and since this time she develops on a perfect manner. The five year old highly talented sport horse makes great advances during daily training and also on shows. Last weekend Daniel presented the mare on a show in Goch. After reaching the finish line of the “Springpferdeprüfung Klasse A” the jury asked the spectators to clap their hands, before they rewarded the round with an 8.5. Full of hope won this class and I would like to congratulate the owners of the horse!
Furthermore Daniel was able to place the five year old Companiero in a Springpferdeprüfung Klasse A**. With Generation under his saddle he became sixth in a M*-class.

After a long drive we all arrived safely. The horses are fit, the team members are in pleasant mood and we riders are very motivated. That means- we are looking forward to the next three weeks and are ready to compete…

23.12.2010 2010- A year full of Highlights!

The contemplative Christmas time and the upcoming turn of the year makes us thoughtful and reflective. The Team Holger Hetzel looks back to a very successful year 2010, which was shaped by several moments of success and happiness.

 

Kleiner Onkel 

Wellington, München, Humlikon, San Giovanni
My horses for the Big Tour presented themselves very good on the international shows during this season. Placements in big classes during the Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington (USA), in the Championat of Munich, as well as in the Grand Prix of Roggel, Pforzheim, Humlikon and Oldenburg are making me happy and satisfied. With several victories and placements in classes for young horses and in the international Youngster Tour the young horses gave proof of our good education and that we have chosen the right way of training.

 

Christine and Tourbillon vd Zuidhoek  © PSVR.de

Chritine Dorenkamp successful
Christine Dorenkamp, first rider in my stable, has had a great season 2010. Main focus was put on the “European Youngster Cup”, where talents between 16 and 25 years old have the chance to compete on international renowned shows. Christine and her four-legged partner Tourbillon van de Zuidhoek were placed during international shows like Munich, Nörten- Hardenberg, Lamprechtshausen and Gera with brilliant rounds. But not only that, During the CSI*** Donaueschingen the young Amazon won the final class of the EY-Cup. Last weekend she became seventh in the “Silver Final” at the Frankfurt horseshow. Christine’s season has had more higlights: At the Renish Championships the 23-year old talent competed for the first time in the age-classes of the seniors and ended up in fifth position. Also at the German Championships in Münster she showed a great performance and attracted attention with her stylistic rounds. World Ranking Points have been collected in Wiener-Neustadt, where Christine and Toubillon got the fourth rank in the Grand Prix!

 

Katrin Eckermann 

Apprentice Katrin Eckermann European Young Rider Champion
This past season 2010, my apprentice Katrin Eckermann was also peppered with several highlights: In her age class „Young Rider“ Katrin and her gelding Carlson collected almost all medals possible to win. The highly talented 20-year old won at the “Preis der Besten” in Warendorf, got the gold medal at the Renish Championships, became first in the final class of the German Championships, during the European Championships in Jardy (FRA) Katrin got the team gold medal and individual silver and at the end of the year the courageous rider became “Indoor Champion” at the Salut Festival in Aachen. Also on the international scene of the elite riders my apprentice attracted attention with her excellent rounds, one example of this was last weekend when she finished second in the Championat of Frankfurt (CSI****).

 

Laura and Dancing Dream 

The offspring makes big steps!
Besides the wonderful results of my team I’m very happy about the success of my daughter. Laura has made an enormous development and was able to win her firs A-class with her pony Dancing Dream. This is a moment that makes me unbelievable proud as a father!

The junior and young riders of the Rhineland are also on the right way for being successful. Unfortunately they haven’t had so much luck during the German Championships but I’m confident that they can win a lot next year. With Stefanie Reining, Katrin Eckermann and Andreas Kreuzer three Rhenish Riders were involved in the medal-winning team at the European Championships in Jardy.
During the „Nachwuchschampionat“ within the Rhenish Championships in Langenfeld it became apparent that we have several very talented youngsters in the sport. This is why I’m looking forward to do my job as the “Rhenish Landestrainer of the junior and young rider” in 2011.

 

Denis Lynch bought Wolkenkratzer 

6. Sport Horse Sales
The explicit highlight and the main focus of our whole year planning was again my Sport Horse Sales. In this sixth edition 17 high quality jumping horses changed their owners for a total of 1.4 million Euros.
The most expensive horse was Wolkenkratzer, a seven years old son of Marlon. He was bought by “Rider of the year” Denis Lynch and I’m sure we will hear a lot about this pair in the future.
The Argentinean football star Hernan Crespo bought a horse for his wife Alessia Rossi. Chris Kappler, gold medal winner with the US-Team during the Olympic Games 2004 and individual silver-medal winner, purchased the five year old mare Polly Pocket for 150.000€. We also got the attendance from many amateur riders who where really exited to find their sport partner for the future.
600 interested guests came to my stable to attend the exclusive event live and I’m really looking forward to receive them again with another selection of high quality young horses next year.
