What do Van Gogh and Dynamo have in common?

19 September 2016

The answer to the question in the title is clear; both international top horses were sold through the Limburg Foal Auction. The auction has managed to leave its mark on international sport with several well-performing horses. Fantastic examples are Van Gogh (by Numero Uno) with Marco Kutscher and Dynamo (by Andiamo) with Christian Ahlmann who are continuously jumping into the limelight at the highest international level.

Van Gogh (breeder: M.T.S. Stultiëns, Weert) was sold in 2002 through the Limburg Foal Auction. The impressive approved stallion has several Grand Prix victories to his name with the German rider Marco Kutscher. They won the Grand Prix in Valkenswaard, the Grand Prix in Los Angeles and the Grand Prix in Hong Kong! In April this year they also placed second in the 1.60m Grand Prix in the Shanghai Longines Global Champions Tour. This horse is living proof that Limburg is the base of high-quality bred horses.

The Andiamo son Dynamo was sold during the Limburg Foal Auction in 2008. At the start of his career he competed with Dutch rider Doron Kuipers and certainly not without merit. Amongst others they won a young horse class in Roosendaal at 1.35m level last year. Recently German top rider Christian Ahlmann took over the reins of this eight-year-old. Ahlmann has more than earned his stripes in the equestrian sport. Which he demonstrated in Rio de Janeiro, his 4th Olympics, with an individual 9th place and a bronze medal with the team! Also with Dynamo Ahlmann has showed impressive result this year, placing first in the CSIYH1* incl. eight-year-old class at 1.45m level in Münster last month!

These international show jumpers prove that the collection of the Limburg Foal Auction is selected with the utmost care. In Limburg quality is bred and auctioned.
