"You just cannot overlook a Hanoverian sport horse. Our Breed leads the world rank for the seventh time in the field of jumping and for the fifth time in the field of dressage! Moreover: with this double success Hannover reclaimed from the Dutch KWPN the 'Best of All' trophy for the leading sport horse breeding book in all disciplines worldwide.".... states Gerd-G. Gauger in the spring issue of The Hannoverian published by the Verband hannoverscher Warmblutzuchter in Verden, Germany.
The Hanoverian also says that, "the year 2000 was the hitherto best financial year, and with this last sales event in November, the Hanoverian Verband established a new record: 57 horses were sold at an average sales price of DM 24,877, a dream of a final result compared with the top average result of this year's summer auction (DM 19,670)". The highest price was for the four year old Welcado by Weltmeyer/Don Juan for DM 125,000.
