DEN HOUT – The presentation of the Van Olst Sales took place yesterday evening. The auction horses were presented under saddle. Although some youngsters were somewhat impressed by the entourage, they presented themselves incredibly well. What is remarkable about this collection is the quality and the high number of approved stallions. No less than seven, including the in 2016 KWPN approved stallion Inverness.
Gertjan van Olst about the evening: “We notice that more and more people are attending our presentation every year. We are off course happy with this development. It was busy tonight and people were listening carefully till the very end. Fantastic!” The collection consists of many modern sport horses from proven dam lines. The presentation started at 19.30 hours and ended three hours later.
The evening started off with the more experienced horses Crosby and Denzel Washington. They we presented by Franka Loos and Benjamin Maljaars. Other riders were Charlotte Fry, Juan Rodriguez en Joanna Riyberg. After a short introduction by speaker Bert de Ruiter, Gertjan van Olst provided the audience with background information. Because nearly all horses were reared at, or bred by Van Olst, there is a lot of knowledge about the horses.
The evening offered potential buyers lots of hope for the future. We will find out who will take which horse home on Friday. The extra presentation starts at 15.00 hours, the auction will start at 19.30 hours.
