32 young stallions were shown under the saddle during intensive 3 hours with a fully packed arena at Helgstrand Dressage Saturday afternoon.
Out of the 32 stallions 4 of them were jumping stallions from Helgstrand Dressage partner Deckstation Schockemöhle.
It was a very proud host Andreas Helgstrand himself welcoming for Helgstrand Dressage 10 year anniversary stallion show. As he told it was not the intention 10 years ago becoming the “main player” offering semen from the best stallions in Europe for clients from all over the world, but here he is today, all underlined by Andreas Helgstrand being grateful from all his business partners making it possible to purchase the best young stallions, and of course the entire team Helgstrand making this day something extraordinary.
More than “just” a show
It became a very special treatment for all dressage lovers, with a very well timed program without any breaks, but super sharp one stallion after the other, with of course all informations and for most of them comments in the arena from either Andreas Helgstrand himself, Thomas Sigtenbjerggaard, Ulf Möller or Cathrine Dufour.
H2R top 3 stallions of the day
It´s hardly not possible just to choose 3 stallions from the 28 presented, but H2R has 3 favorites from the show:
The newly purchased OLD saddle licensing champion Fynch Hatton just brings something extraordinary. From watching this stallion at the video presentation for the licensing, to the honouring at the licensing and to the auction presentation - he not just look extremely handsome, bringing a super cool overview for every single situation. Here below as Helgstrand tells the rider Kenneth Damgaard has just been in the saddle twice before this show. This is a very special top quality boy.
Sezuan is for sure a favorite stallion at Helgstrand. Sezuan produces impressive offsprings, big framed, well moving and very rideable.
The presentation from Eva Möller with So Unique was really nice. The big expressive boy just shows so much positive power and willingness under Eva with 3 super gaits always well balanced.
Jovian under Andreas Helgstrand looks like a couple for the podium at WCYH later this year in Ermelo. So much expression and uphill - more is not possible.
As clear a surplus the foals born this year all looks very appealing.
Just below H2R top 3 are the two young stallions by Kastel´s Grand Galaxy Win, both light-footed, modern and with 3 supple gaits.
Both Lord Europe (Lord Leatherdale / Boston ) and Kardieno (Dante Weltino / Parcival (Gelder)) brings some different and new bloodlines. Both stallions are big framed, long legged and impressive movers.
