Frequently asked

Signing up

No, signing up is free of charge and we quickly respond if we come and view your foal at your home. We organize no selection days.

If and when the committee has viewed the foal and has selected it, we proceed to auction, and you are obliged to offer your foal for sale at the auction.

You will receive an auction contract, together with more information about the video days and the auction. Prior to the auction you will receive an extensive document that details all the preparations for the video days. At the video days we have an entire team at our disposal that ensures your mare and foal look their best in the arena. We write an elaborate promotion text that is available to you during the video days.

The start-up costs are 350 euros excl. BTW, the invoice will be sent after the video days. At the sale of the foal, we charge a commission of 10%.


Congratulations! You receive a contract from the auction that you can sign digitally. The day after the auction you receive the invoice that must be paid in full within five days. Afterwards, the organisation will contact you for the delivery of the foal.

We are happy to help! We work together with a number of export professionals and jointly we devise a suitable plan. Are you looking for a foal as a stallion prospect or a filly for sport and breeding? Are you curious which foal would match your goals? Our selection committee happily gives you advice and additional information about the auction foals. Please contact the organisation and run your question by the selection committee.

The foals can be weaned off from 4.5 months of age and must be delivered within two weeks after. Until time of delivery, the risks and expenses are for the breeder. After 4.5 months the risk transfers to the buyer. The foals will be delivered by the breeders at the buyers’ location within the Netherlands. If you are purchasing a foal from abroad the buyer must arrange transportation.

Of course, we happily provide you with the contact details of the seller!
