New website Stal Hendrix

New website Stal Hendrix

Whoehoe it’s live! The new website of Stal Hendrix. It took some time and effort, but the website is now for everyone to see. We are proud, take a quick look and judge for yourself!

The old website of Stal Hendrix was somewhat outdated and no longer met the wishes of the international sport and breeding company. That is why we, Equine MERC, were asked to design and fill the new website.

On the new website you can read all about the history and the present of the family business, you can admire the stallions and you can read everything about breeding. You stay up to date with all the latest news and you will find more information about the events organized by Stal Hendrix. Examples of this are the Limburg Foal Auction and the Dutch Sport Horse Sales, of which we have also designed the website.

Record breaking editions with over € 4.5 million profit in two days

The annual auctions Dutch Sport Horse Sales and Limburg Foal Auction took place in september, and how! Event agency Equine MERC and Stal Hendrix, have put down record-breaking editions. For the first time, the profit of the foal auction was over one million, and the auctions together accounted for more than € 4.5 million profit in total!

Smooth cooperation
The editions of 2017 were held at the accommodation of Equestrian Centre de Peelbergen in Kronenberg for the second time. Last year, that really was a challenge, because everything had to be reassessed. How did it go this year? Daisy van Nieuwkasteele: “The auctions went smoother than ever before! We have learned from last year’s evaluation points. You can also notice that we sat together with all parties at one table. This had a positive effect on the cooperation. “According to the entrepreneur.

“It exceeded our expectations”
Luc van Moorsel, who had been in charge of Stal Hendrix’s auctions for two years before Daisy came into the picture in 2014, is also very enthusiastic about the auctions: “The reactions are very good. The most important thing is that the breeders of the foals went back home with a good feeling. They could certainly be satisfied with an average selling price of € 9,400. The results of the DSHS truly exceeded our expectations. That was a major success! We again had a super-talented collection this year, and that was visible in the prices. An amount of four tons was deposited for the top-seller and the average sales prices were also higher than the previous edition (average: € 137,000, red). ”

Daisy and Luc add: “We want to thank Stal Hendrix for the confidence in Equine MERC. The Dutch Sport Horse Sales is for them thé sales moment of the year and a very special event. It is therefore extraordinary that they entrust the organization to us. We are already looking forward to the next edition! ”

Sales prices DSHS & Limburg Foal Auction
During the showjumper auction, twelve horses were sold for over € 100.000 and the average selling price was € 137,000. The top-seller was Goliath (by Bustique), who went under the hammer for an amount of no less than € 400,000. At the foals the average selling price was € 9,400 and the most expensive foal Mucinda (by Berlin) exchanged for € 30,000 from owner.

Luc van Moorsel presenter at Stal Hendrix’ stallion show

Luc van Moorsel presenter at Stal Hendrix’ stallion show

KESSEL – The fifth edition of Stal Hendrix’ stallion show took place last night. Luc van Moorsel, co-owner of equestrian marketing and event agency Equine MERC, was responsible for hosting this annual evening.

Six studs were presented last night: Don Diablo HX, Gaspahr, Cape Coral RBF Z, George and Entertainer are all stallions that have been in training at Stal Hendrix for several years now. They exceed their promises; both as sires and sport horses. The 20-year-old Ultimo van ter Moude also appeared in the arena. The former Grand Prix horse ridden by Todd Minikus was presented on hand.

Two or more offspring were shown of every stud. Both ridden or on hand. This was highly appreciated by the visitors.

After every stallion made his entrance, Luc did a short introduction. Paul and Emile Hendrix took over afterwards for a more technical clarification.

There was an honouring planned halfway through the evening for the breeders of two successful young stallions. Both stallions, owned by Stal Hendrix, have succeeded in the first, second and third round viewings and are now invited for the KWPN stallion test.

It was a beautiful edition. We thank Stal Hendrix for their trust.

In addition to the auction and website, Equine MERC takes care of the catalogue of the Dutch Sport Horse Sales since 2012. And we did it again: the catalogue is finished and looks great!

The Dutch Sport Horse Sales is an annual horse auction organised on the initiative of Stal Hendrix. The auction collection consists of talented young show jumpers, selected by the Hendrix-family and Yves Houtackers. This year September 19th and 20th, the Dutch Sport Horse Sales will take place at Equestrian Centre de Peelbergen in Kronenberg for the first time.

The catalogue has undergone a minor facelift this year. The corporate identity of the Dutch Sport Horse Sales has been renewed last year by going live with the new website and this year we also reflected the new identity in the catalogue. The collection of 2016 can be seen on the website, but the horses can also be admired in the digital catalogue. Besides the collection, the catalogue also contains interviews with Emma Augier de Moussac and Vincent Voorn, regular guests of the auction. In addition, we show a number of successful horses that have been sold via the DSHS.

We are curious what you think about our new collection and catalogue!
