Horse Auction Belgium has been creating a reputation for its quality young horse selection since its first edition in 2013.
The key to the success of each edition is the professional team behind the auction, that guarantees the quality of the horses that are selected.
Michel Spaas as head of the team, who has been a horse trader, breeder and stallion owner all his life and has created an exceptional reputation all through Europe as a true horseman, works hand to hand with some of Belgium’s horse industry top equestrians:
Cristophe Gijbels who has more than 25 years of experience in breeding and horse trading all over Europe, Kevin Gielen who has competed as a professional rider at the top level of the sport for many years and is the main trainer and owner of KG Stables in Belgium and last but not least the public relations specialist Lore Penders, who as a rider and horse trader herself, knows the industry back and forth and is the mastermind behind all the logistics, communications and client services for the horse auction.
Horse Auction Belgium has a very strict selection process and takes pride in offering the best bloodlines from around the world, always guaranteeing healthy, rigorously vetted horses.
Some of our top references from past editions include:
Jimmy Mack van Berkenbroeck performing at the highest levels of the sport (1.60m and Europeans for young riders), Lorenta, who jumped as an 8y old to a 3rd place in the GP*** in Frankfurt and Heart-Third, a fantastic mare who already had 12 international wins at the age of 7 and was delivering clear rounds at CSI** GP's.
After a fantastic live edition on January 2020, the team decided to take the auction into the next step and increase the reach to potential clients abroad by doing the first Online version of the horse auction on from June 26 until the 29th, keeping its founding pillars intact: quality and great costumer experience.
The team is exited to venture into the online horse auction world and have the opportunity to expand our network to connect our future starts with the right client anywhere in the globe.
