The horse will join other Harmony breeding stallions, including Lemony’s Nicket, the Geman Young Horse Champion, at Ingo and Susan Pape’s stallion station in Germany.

Sa Coeur was ridden by Eva Möller in the world championships at Verden, Germany for a score of 9.38 that included a 10 for the walk.

The 45 dressage and jumping horses brought €15,580,000 (US$20,150,000) at the 33rd PSI auction.

The average price of dressage horses was €352,174 (US$455,500) and for jumpers €346,222 (US$447,800).
