ABOUT THE EVENT
Auction Mechelen and
“Breeders and enthusiasts of young horses, take note!”
Auction Mechelen is hosting not one, but two online auctions, one taking place before Jumping Mechelen and one following it. Moreover, the auction is not only open to 2- and 3-year-old horses as previously, but also talented 4-, 5-, 6- and 7-year-olds.
On December 27th, during Jumping Mechelen, you can enjoy the Loose Jumping finals for 2- and 3-year-olds in the New Year Arena.
Updated Mechelen Auction
Since this year, we have provided two online auctions: the Christmas Collection Auction for 2- and 3-year-olds (closing on 22/12/’23) and the New Year Collection Auction for 4-, 5-, 6- and 7-year-olds (closing on 2/1/’24).
Your amazing horse at the auction
Did one of your young talents fit the Auction Mechelen picture? Then you could get in touch. In October and November you and your 2- to 7-year-old horse could attend one of the 4 showcases in Koningshooikt (17/10, 31/10, 07/11 or 14/11).
Those who jumped into the spotlight during one of these viewing evenings already had a chance to win a spot in one of our end-of-year collections.
To do so, you first had to make an appointment with Wendy Wauters (+32 474 499 667) and Auction Mechelen welcomed you with great enthusiasm.
Looking for young talent?
The full collection will appear on the Auction Mechelen site on December 12th 2023. Do you want to see the 4, 5, 6, and 7-year-old horses in action beforehand? Then head over to the Christmas Arena on Wednesday, December 27th at 5:30 pm.
between the class for 7-year-old stallions and the Léon Melchior Sires of the World (CSIW5*), you can see the horses in action. Tempted by the collection?
If so, you can find us at the stand of Auction Mechelen in the stand village during Jumping Mechelen or feel free to contact one of the team members of Auction Mechelen directly.
As per annual tradition, a loose jumping competition for 2 and 3-year-old horses is also organized as part of Jumping Mechelen. Those who wanted to show their skills in the grand finale at the Nekker Hall on December 27 in the New Year Arena had to collect the necessary points at a number of selection competitions organized throughout the country. The top three from each preliminary round had a chance to advance to the semifinals. This semifinal went on at the Azelhof (Lier).
The results of the semifinals can be found below:
