The 38th annual P.S.I. Auction in 2017 confirmed that the quality and philosophy of Performance Sales International increasingly popular at the international level each year. “Particularly regular customers rely on the mutual trust à la P.S.I. and appreciate the extraordinary service,” knows Paul Schockemöhle. His partner Ullrich Kasselmann adds that it again proved to be true that the studs Lewitz and Osthoff are regularly producing extraordinary horses such as last year’s Zonic sons, price highlight Zum Glück Rs2 OLD and Zucchero OLD. “Our customers appreciate that we know most of the horses from birth, and they treasure their excellent nursery and training just as much as their quality.”
The products of the P.S.I. System are what makes the auction so unique and what makes it renowned as the world’s most successful private warmblood auction. “The majority of the auction lots are horses that we have either bred ourselves or bought as foals,” said Paul Schockemöhle. “This means we can start a targeted training programme from day one of their career under the saddle. This helps us to ensure excellent standards of quality.” Paul Schockemöhle’s Lewitz Stud is a unique source of young talents, complemented by the Kasselmann family’s breeding programme at the Osthoff Stud, where the pair are in control of an incredible genetic capital. In continuance of this ideal, the horses are expertly selected and raised at these locations, leaving nothing up to chance. To sustain this trend in future, P.S.I. remains committed to selecting the best young dressage and show jumping horses and to placing them in the right hands.
When the horses are mature, they are carefully started and trained under saddle by the teams at Hof Kasselmann or Schockemöhle Stables, who, through their knowledge of the horse’s history are uniquely qualified for the task. Every P.S.I. horse has an exemplary “curriculum vitae” thanks to decades of experience and know-how, complimented by the care of experienced grooms, riders and handlers.
Style, quality and own-bred horses, professional expertise and first-rate contacts are the foundations of the P.S.I. Auction. This auction delivers a comprehensive service package that customers won’t experience anywhere else. A first rate after-sale service including organising the horses’ transportation to anywhere in the world, insurance covering the entire purchase price, comprehensive veterinary documentation and, if required, post-purchase training for the rider and the horse, sets new owners up to succeed with their new equestrian partners. “Our customers’ success is our motivation,” said Ulli Kasselmann, explaining the principle on which the P.S.I. auction is based.
