The auction is held during the new international show in Denmark with Nations Cup in both dressage and show jumping. Equitour Aalborg and Helgstrand Dressage has joined forces with Danish Warmblood and Westfalen, so breeders in both federations have the opportunity to sell dressage foals of extraordinary quality to buyers from around the world, but the aim is to present an exceptional collection of foals covering a wider range of breeding federations.
“International dressage riders at the level we’ll be seeing during Equitour are always looking for their next dressage star and quality is of course decisive,” explains Equitour event director Jens Trabjerg and continues:
“Pedigree must of course be well documented, but if there are breeders with promising dressage foals out there, the breed is no hindrance for the foal to be entered into the collection at the Nordic International Sales.”
