Capital Stud hosted their first Auction on 17 and 18 November 2017 and Arco360 were the proud insurers of choice for all the auction horses.

Capital Stud proved to be the perfect setting for this prestigious event, nestled under the tranquil Magaliesburg mountain rage, just 45 minutes outside the bustling city. 

There was an overwhelming response and Capital Stud are so thankful to everyone who took part in this event to make it such a success. There was plenty of delicious food, beer garden and a wonderful champagne and oyster bar, all surrounded by exquisite décor. The voice of the event really brought it all together, Aiden Lithgow and international auctioneer, Dirk Zaggers, brought a wealth of knowledge to the arena. Ringmaster, Jan Rummens, who also travelled all the way from Holland to make sure everything ran smoothly. Capital Stud had a wonderful riding team of professional riders. All this would not have been the success it was without the stud manager, Chelsea Alex Oliver, no is just not in her vocabulary. Equisport brought their wealth of experience to ensure the event ran smoothly with their incredible team who ran the actual auction from the professional spotters right through to the admin office.

A big thank you to owner, Henning Pretorius. Without the sheer passion and dedication to the breeding in this sport, we would never be where we are today with Showjumping in South Africa. And of course, most importantly, thank you to our Capital Stud supporters for creating a demand for quality bred warmbloods in South Africa. Without you, this event would not have been possible.

Congratulations to all the new owners of our Capital Stud Auction Horses! We wish you many happy rides and successful partnerships.
