Ask @holsteinerverband : How do you control the quality of stock coming in for auction?

Ask @holsteinerverband : How do you control the quality of stock coming in for auction?
It’s mostly about a favourable overall impression. Of course the selection panel is always happy to see exceptional jumping ability. So for example a horse with super potential for top level sports minor deficiencies in terms of rideability might be acceptable. On the other hand, significant health deficiencies are a definite no-go and not acceptable for an auction.
Thank you! Is there anything in particular that panel really like to see in a horse, or anything that would mean a definite no?
Dear Caoimhe,
The selection panel comprising equine experts selects the quality auction horses from more than 100 candidates.

Désirée from the Holsteiner Verband
