The highly successful SLF Auction of the three horsemen Harrie Smolders, Walter Lelie, and Niels Fabrie is back with a super exciting collection of experienced show jumpers and talented youngsters, but also foals and embryos with top pedigrees.
Go to www.slf.auction to check out the collection. Bids can be placed from September 19-21.
It has been a while since the last SLF auction, but quality is the number one requirement for world-class young horse producer Walter Lelie, matchmaker Niels Fabrie, and Olympic rider Harrie Smolders. Only when they have found an outstanding collection of quality horses do they get the wheels rolling and start organizing their next auction.
Quality and Trust
“We carry two important values, which are quality and trust,” Walter Lelie says. “We want to have a good horse for everyone. Whether it’s an equitation horse, a hunter, a jumper, a junior horse, or a young horse, we only select horses that we think could belong to the best in their discipline or category. And by following and selecting the horses ourselves, we stand behind every horse in our collection. We want clients to know they can trust us.”
Lelie is excited about the collection. “The level is very high, and we have a couple of extremely exclusive foals in the collection.”
Family Of Horses That Shaped My Career
Harrie Smolders agrees with his partner. “It’s an excellent collection that contains family members of horses that made my career. There’s a few Emerald offspring, but also a foal from Don’s dam line and the full brother of Nixon van’t Meulenhof!”
Three Auction Days
“We have more ridden horses compared to the last auction,” Niels Fabrie adds. “Approximately 30. The 5-year-old and older horses will be auctioned on Wednesday, the 21st of September, the last day of our auction. The first day, we will auction the embryos and the foals. The second day is for the free jumping 3-year-olds and the ridden 4-year-olds.”
“We really look forward to seeing how the 4-year-olds will do together with the 3-year-olds because they looked very promising when we filmed them,” says Lelie.
