The Top-Eventers 2014 Collection: 19 upper level prospects

One of the many horses offered, B-Lasina.

Some of the world’s most promising upper level prospects will be available at auction on November 8th at the tenth Top-Event Horse Auction in Luhmühlen, Germany. International rider Elmar Lesch and his partner Iris Schless will proudly present 19 world-class young horses at their 2014 auction.

Elmar and Iris work hard to find undiscovered young talent by scouting horses that are still at the farms they were bred at in Germany. Over half of this year’s horse collection has come directly from a breeder’s farm. Germany is renowned for breeding world-class horses but it is not always easy for buyers to find talent before it is realized by others. This year’s collection of horses does not disappoint, Elmar Lesch says, “We have six horses who competed at the National Championships in Warendorf, five weeks ago. These young horses are the ‘crème de la crème’ of Germany’s event horses. People who are familiar with our auction will also know that we are sure to have a couple of surprises up our sleeves. This year we are lucky to be able to present a number of very interesting and special candidates, some horses already have international one-star placings. These more experienced Top-Eventers are suitable for juniors and pony riders wanting to move up a level, letting them set their sights on the 2015 junior championships.”

Of course the wishes and requirements of the adult riders haven’t been ignored. Iris is certain that the candidates will satisfy the highest expectations, “We are offering a wide variety. It is very important to us that we select horses that are not only way above average quality, but they must also all be 100% healthy, easy to ride, and have the right work ethic to succeed.  This year professional riders and ambitious amateurs can choose between a number of highly promising youngsters, all with the potential to be competitive at the top levels of eventing.”

You can arrange an appointment to try out the horse of your choice before the auction. The auction team looks forward to welcoming you to Elmar Lesch’s Training Center where you can take your potential new partner for a test ride.
