In 2014 ET Auction was the first ever online auction for embryos. Today, it’s still known as the most influential platform in this category. ET Auction is unique because it focuses on embryos with the best blood in the world. Since the start many have been sold worldwide. The eldest foals already were remarked by several connoisseurs. Our philosophy has thus been proven: the best chance to get a top horse, is to buy a top embryo!
ET Auction filled a gap in the flourishing equestrian business. The need was high, but the possibilities were even greater. That’s why we redeveloped the formula. The activities are expanding. In January 2017 we start with united season auctions. No longer we will sell the embryos separately. From now on we will work with exclusive collections of approx. ten embryo’s each time. You will see us appear much more emphatic. Each season we will add a new collection. The Winter Edition in January, the Spring Edition in March, …
The best horses in the world are Belgians and the best horses in the world are born through embryotransfer. Think about London, Cornet Obolensky, Itôt du Château, Mylord Carthago, Go Easy de Muze, Fair Light Van ’t Heike, etc… Thanks to ET, the Belgian breeding grew superfast lately. Through ET, the best sport and broodmares can be used more frequently. The sport proved that it works. The Belgian studbooks have grown together with the technique of ET. Zangersheide and BWP are currently in the top three of the world ranking. Fifty percent of the top ten horses in the world are Belgian breds. Seven Belgian horses came home with a medal after the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro 2016.
Valentijn De Brabander was the founder of ET Auction. He’s the son of veterinarian, ET pioneer and top breeder Joris De Brabander of Stal de Muze. To work out the new format, equestrian journalist, rider and breeder Björn Van Bunder of Stoeterij ’t Merelsnest came on board in the end of 2016. So, ET Auction was a project of two young horsemen, who have proven knowledge and experience in this sector.
A tragic traffic accident (1 August 2017) interrupted the fast expansion of ET Auction, the inspirer, Björn Van Bunder died. A tragic loss for but as they say, life has to go on… Since then, Christophe De Brabander, promising breeder, rider and upcoming veterinairian joined the project.
After the success of our embryos collection the demand for an extensive offer grew, April 2017 we did the first Young Horse Edition. 2 and 3-year-old youngsters who showed their quality of loose jumping. A bold initiative that was received with enthusiasm by the international buyers.
ET Auction keeps innovating. Visit the website to stay informed about the running auctions and the further evolution. Feel free to contact us with your questions.
