  • Program

    From 20 to 24 September 2023 Domein Zangersheide will be the centre of the jumping world. The FEI WBFSH Jumping World Breeding Championship for Young Horses 2023 is the closing event of the breeding summer and is an established value in the horse world! Inimitably, it showcases the interconnectedness of sport, breeding and trade to a worldwide audience.

    At the FEI WBFSH Jumping World Breeding Championship for Young Horses 2023, five-, six- and seven-year-olds compete for the world titles! And winning counts, the podium provides the winners with the aura of a world title on top of a premium for breeder and rider.

    As mentioned before, the event links sport, breeding and trade in an inimitable way. 

    At the Zangersheide Quality Auction the best foals in the world come under the hammer. For years, Zangersheide has broken every record and the Zangersheide Quality Auction is the apotheosis of a busy foal auction season. Im 2022 Zangersheide hammered down the most expensive filly foal ever and the seventy-nine foals and fourteen youngsters that where auctioned, achieved a total turnover of € 4,459,000! 

    The older stallions have a prominent role to play in the FEI Sires of the World competition, where they can show their talent and jumping ability to the professional world.

    With this class, the circle is closed and during these 5 days in September, everything will be on display. From foal to sporthorse to established breeding stallion.

    We sincerely hope to see you at the Zangersheide events.
