Satisfied regular customers at the fore

When the 18th International Sport Horse Sales begins at the Holger Hetzel Equestrian Sports Centre on the evening of 29 November there will be plenty of regular customers in attendance. Over the past two decades, the regular customer base has continued to expand as people from all over the world have found exceptional young horses that are perfect for their needs here in Goch.  

“I can't even tell you how many satisfied buyers have become regular customers over the years, but it's an unbelievable number,” said Hetzel, who sees this as an important vote of confidence from his international clientele. “It’s also a great source of motivation for our entire team to scout, discover and train top horses throughout the year,” added the internationally successful show jumper and trainer.  

This year’s auction collection includes 20 five to seven-year-old horses, some of which already have international placings. The collection can be viewed online at from 30 October 2023 onwards. Try-outs can also be arranged directly between now and the auction.

The last public presentation of the horses by Holger Hetzel’s team of riders starts at 10 am on 26 November at the Hetzel Equestrian Sport Centre. Try-outs are possible afterwards by arrangement. There are some surprises in store for guests at this year’s evening auction event, but they are being kept under wraps for now.
