Since its establishment in 2008 Helgstrand has won 11 medals at the World Championships for young horses. In 2017 Helgstrand Dressage won 3 medals; Severo won gold on Fiontini and got three times world champion, Andreas won silver on Ferrari OLD and Severo won bronze on Quel Filou. It's not only the young horses who achieve great success, the riders have also managed to get top places at Prix St. Georg and Grand Prix level both nationally and internationally.
In 2017, the Helgstrand Academy was opened. Besides functioning as a riding school, it also stables horses from Helgstrand Dressage. Every year the Academy also hosts several competitions at nationally and internationally level including the Equitour Aalborg.
Facilities in Germany and the US
In December 2017, the sales stable was successfully expanded into Wellington, Florida, which is managed by Dr. Ulf Möller. In conjunction with the sales stable, Helgstrand Dressage also runs a stallion station with some of the World's best stallions. Helgstrand recently expanded its stallion station and opened a new facility in Hagen, Germany, which is managed by Michael Schmidt with help from breeding expert Hanke Ostermann.
In April 2018, Helgstrand Dressage has started a new partnership with the recognised show jumper Rolf-Göran Bengtsson. The aim is to build a show jumping sales stable with the same emphasis on quality, customer focus and inventory depth that Helgstrand has created within the dressage world. The sales stable is based in Itzehoe, Germany.
