Bidding starts on 5 June and will end on 8 June 2020.
Due to the corona pandemic upending the normal order of affairs this year, the Van Olst Sales have undergone a transformation in format, adapting to the needs and current Covid-19 restrictions for riders and owners world wide.
"Knowing that live auctions with an audience are utopian at the moment, we decided to change the format of the auction as well as the type of collections that we are offering," Gert-Jan van Olst. "The first collection for 2020 includes young 3 and 4-year old horses from our own breeding and rearing program and we'll auction them online at www.vanolstsales.online."
Rescolar (by Escolar x Sir Donnerhall)The "Online Van Olst Sales" features a small collection of ten professionally trained, home reared youngsters, fulfilling the demands of dressage riders that are seeking affordable and trainable young stars with promise for the future.
"The first group of horses that we are selling online are well trained, well bred youngsters with potential for the future," said Gert-Jan. "We aim to offer horses for all segments of the markets and are realistic that the market cannot always afford or ride mega stars. This collection has ten wonderful young horses that will appeal to a very large group of dressage riders."
