NEWS at Helgstrand Dressage today
Fantastic gaits, impressive balance, active hind legs and masculine expression - this is exactly what characterizes the new stallion, that Helgstrand Dressage has purchased; Kardieno by Dante Weltino OLD/Parcival. A combination of the best genes, a stallion that for sure catches the eye when he enters the arena.
- We are delighted with the purchase of this 4-year-old stallion. Every day I see top horses, but this stallion is so unique and we look forward to offer him as part of our stallion collection to our breeders, said Andreas Helgstrand proudly.
Kardieno impressed the spectators already at the 2018 KWPN stallion licensing and many were waiting with excitement for him to enter the arena this year. High-set, elegant and with powerful gaits. At the KWPN stallion licensing he was presented by Bart Veeze from the Netherlands.
For the many breeders who have secured a ticket to Helgstrand Dressage and Paul Schockemöhle's stallion show in Verden this Friday and for the people visiting this year's Danish Warmblod Stallion Licensing in Herning really have something to look forward to.
- We actually wanted to make it a surprise, but it can be a difficult to keep the enthusiasm for ourselves and we also think that the breeders should have something to look forward to, said Andreas with a smile.
Kardieno has been approved in KWPN, after finishing his performance test with a high score. Not only does he look like his father, the impressive Dante Weltino, who qualified for the German Bundeschampionat as both 5-year and 6-year-old with Therese Nilshagen, he also possesses his quality. As a 7-year-old, Dante Weltino made his debut with Therese in S-dressage and he won his first Grand Prix as only 8 years old. Since then, they have achieved numerous victories and places at international Grand Prix level and among the highlights to mention; winning team bronze at the 2017 European Championship in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Kardieno is bred by Janneke Gnodde from Terschelling, the Netherlands.
