The organizing team of The Youngsters is currently fully focussed on the 2020 online edition of The Youngsters on Tuesday 10 November 2020, but we also like to look back on our previous editions. The horses sold in 2018 and 2019 have been delivering fantastic results with their new owners and many returning customers have shown their interest in this year’s edition. One of them is Dutch rider Glenn Knoester: “After good experiences in 2018 and 2019, I am looking forward to the auction this year.”
In the first edition of The Youngsters in 2018, Glenn Knoester purchased the then 4-year-old mare Jillz. “She is now a 6-year-old and she is really promising. She has done many international young horse classes and Jill is a horse with a bright future ahead of her”, Knoester tells. “We returned for the second auction in 2019 and purchased the Harley VDL-son Leicester, back then a 3-year-old. This year as a 4-year-old, Leicester developed very well and jumped fantastic in the Dutch Championships for 4-year-olds in Valkenswaard.” Leicester received a 9.2 for jumping and an 8.8 for rideability and was afterwards sold to the renowned Ashford Farm of Enda Carroll.

2018 top-seller Je T’Aime
The 2018 top-seller Je T’Aime is also living up to the high expectations; in the first edition of The Youngsters, Je T’Aime was sold to Billy Twomey, Karel Cox and Johnny Pals. Ridden by Ireland’s top rider Billy Twomey, Je T’Aime seems to have all the potential for the highest level and recently won two international 7-year-old classes in Vejer de la Frontera.
Karanza performing in Poland
The references of The Youngsters are doing excellent all over the world; in the previous editions the horses were sold to no less than thirteen different countries. In Poland, the now 5-year-old mare Karanza is making a name for herself. Ridden by Slawomir Uchwat, Karanza won a bronze medal in the Polish championships for 5-year-olds and recently was placed multiple times in the young horse classes of Warsaw Jumping 2020.
Numerous victories for Jackpot & Unicorn
Another striking reference is the now 6-year-old Jackpot; ridden by Switzerland’s Morgane Dassio, Jackpot has already won three CSI Young Horse classes in 2019 and 2020. Recently, the 5-year-old Kingstone, sold in 2018, stepped into the limelight by winning the CSI Young Horse Final in Valencia, ridden by Belgium’s Boy-Adrian van Gelderen. Meanwhile in the USA, 2019 top-seller Unicorn does excellent in the hunter competitions. Owned by McLain Ward and Owen Rogers, Unicorn is now called Courtly and has won numerous hunter championships.
