Helgstrand UK – Leading dressage and show jumping stable
In December 2020, Helgstrand established a new location in UK. The UK location has been established with four-time Olympian and British equestrian legend Richard Davison. He will lead the Group’s UK development across all brand and commercial platforms.
Richard, together with his sons Tom and Joe, runs a combined dressage and show jumping stable, and he is also involved in many aspects of the British and international equestrian community. He is a former British Olympic Dressage Team manager and World Class Show Jumping Programme coach.
The name Davison has been synonymous with elite level equestrian sport in Great Britain for many years. Richard is a four-time Olympian (including the 2012 London Olympic Games) and has been at the fore-front of the international dressage world for three decades. As well as being among the world’s most experienced international riders he is in demand for his many other attributes.

Online Open House 2021
Successful stallion station with an exclusive collection
Alongside the development of the sales activities of the company, Helgstrand Dressage has established EU stallion stations in Denmark and Germany. The collection exists exclusively out of high-quality stallions among which you will find numerous Champion Stallions and Premium Stallions, winners of national championships, performance tests, sport tests and the prestigious World Championships for Young Horses. In 2018 Paul Schockemöhle and Helgstrand Dressage started cooperating with their stallion stations. With this cooperation Helgstrand and Schockemöhle secure breeders with the absolute best breeding stallions, outstanding gene-material and superior service. With an extensive distributor network, Helgstrand Dressage meets the great demands for fresh and frozen semen internationally.
Adding new champions to the collection every year
Our stallion collection is continuously expanded with new exciting stallions, many of which have already been awarded titles such as premium stallion and champion stallion. By taking part in auctions and stallion licensing we are continuously securing champion stallions to the collection. On an ongoing basis, we put them up for grading in the various breeding associations in order to offer our many breeders a great variation.
Performance like nowhere else
Performance traits are considered very important in breeding organizations. Competing our stallions in the dressage sport is hence very important. We have a professional team, who are responsible for the daily training of all our young stallions, while the slightly older stallions are ridden and showed by our skilled and professional team of riders at Helgstrand Dressage.
Excellent breeding advice
We seek to offer breeders the best service and advice in order to help them find the perfect match for their mares. We therefore provide our breeders with a team of expert breeding consultants including some of the best within the breeding world – like Michael Schmidt, Hanke Ostermann, Lene Birkemose and Christian Springborg.
