NEWS at Helgstrand Dressage 1 November
At Helgstrand Dressage we think, it's very important to give the horses the best possible start in life. But until now we didn't have the opportunity to stable our foals and young horses before 2 years of age due to lack of space. But with the purchase of the beautiful farm, Ny Ravnstrup only 5 minutes from Helgstrand Dressage, we are ready to begin a new chapter at Helgstrand Dressage.
- We buy around 50-70 foals a year and for a long time it has been a great desire to have the foals at Helgstrand being able to give them the best conditions. With the purchase of Ny Ravnstrup we can now make the dream come true and that is a great feeling, said Andreas.
Ny Ravnstrup is only 5 minutes from Helgstrand Dressage and the plan is that the General Manager, Thomas Sigtenbjerggard and his wife, Lene Birkemose, who is managing the stallion station in Denmark, are going to live at Ny Ravnstrup.
- We are very much looking forward to run the place. The plan is to build new stables, which will house around 150 horses and in addition an indoor arena. The many hectares of land will be used to make our own hay, so that we may be able to supplement beyond what we buy. It's a big project and I'm really looking forward to getting started, adds Thomas, who at the same time sees Ny Ravnstrup as the perfect setting for him and his family.
- At Helgstrand Dressage a new era will begin with the purchase of Ny Ravnstrup. We are given the opportunity to follow our horses already from foals, giving them the best conditions by letting them grow up with other foals in a loose-housing system. They will be out every day and our competent veterinarians and farriers will make sure they get the best treatment, said Andreas.
