"In 2021 we experienced growth on all fronts. Fantastic auctions characterised a brilliant Oldenburg auction year. For the first time, the Oldenburger Pferde Vermarktungs GmbH organised hybrid auctions in Vechta – with great success. The noble black mare Superb is the ultimate price leader; no three-year-old mare at an association auction has ever been knocked down for a price higher than 450,500 Euros. A brilliant result that we owe above all to our loyal breeders and exhibitors. We wish all Oldenburg friends a wonderful Christmas and continued joy and success with their Oldenburg horses," said Managing Director Heiner Kanowski, summing up an impressive year 2021.
