Samarbejde med verdens bedste
I ønsket om at blive verdens førende ridesportsvirksomhed indgår Helgstrand Dressage løbende aftaler med nogle af verdens bedste ryttere og trænere. Samarbejdet omfatter ikke alene uddannelse af heste, men også muligheden for at henvende sig til nye markeder gennem samarbejdspartnerens hjemsted.

Samarbejde med Danmarks bedste dressurrytter, Cathrine Dufour
Der er ikke noget at sige til, at Cathrine Dufour stod øverst på listen over ønskede samarbejdspartnere herhjemme. Cathrine har om nogen formået at slå sit navn fast på den internationale dressurscene, efter hun talrige gange har givet verdens bedste ryttere kamp til stregen. Til det prestigefyldte SAAB Top 10 – et stævne for verdensranglistens 10 bedste ryttere – red Cathrine sin hidtil bedste tur i 2019 og vandt over selveste Isabell Werth med næsten 90% i sin kür. Denne dag blev der samtidig slået dansk rekord, og hun blev officielt en del af den lille skare, der har redet til så imponerende procenter.
Samarbejdet med Cathrine startede i 2018, og dengang udtalte hun: - Jeg er utrolig stolt over at have fået denne mulighed. Gennem mange år har jeg været i tæt dialog med Andreas, fortæller Cathrine. At få mulighed for at træne nogle af verdens bedste heste er mig en ære, og jeg glæder mig utrolig meget til samarbejdet, fortæller Cathrine.
Cathrine har et væld af DM-, NM- og EM-titler samt talrige internationale Grand Prix-sejre, og med en placering som nummer 5 på FEI's verdensrangliste på Atterupgaards Cassidy hører hun til blandt verdenseliten. Allerede som 24-årig red hun sit første OL på Cassidy, hvor hun opnåede at placere sig som bedste dansker med en individuel 13. plads. Hendes mål er at vinde guld ved OL, hvilket hun arbejder målrettet på.
- Vi er henrykte over, at Cathrine valgte at takke ja til at indlede et samarbejde med os. Hun har formået selv at uddanne heste op til Grand Prix og hendes mange sejre taler for sig. Hun besidder en utrolig disciplin og arbejdsmoral, og jeg er sikker på, at det er grunden til, at hun har vundet mere end de fleste trods sin unge alder, fortæller Andreas.
Cathrine har allerede redet talrige sejre og placeringer hjem på de heste, som hun har i træning, eksempelvis opnåede hun en 4. plads på Straight Horse Don Zuan (Zack/Don Schufro) med 92,0% i 5-års championatet, mens hun kvalificerede sig til 6-års championatet med 93% i 2020. I 2019 sluttede hun på en 6. plads i 5-års championatet med Eternity (Escolar/Sir Donnerhall I), mens hun vandt MB0 med 81,41% på Ringsted Sports Rideklub i 2020.
Cathrine er bosiddende i Roskilde på Midtsjælland på stedet Grønagergård, som nu fungerer som salgsstald for Helgstrand Dressage.

Helgstrand samarbejder med en af Englands toptrænere, Emile Faurie
I 2020 kunne Helgstrand byde velkommen til en af Englands største rytter- og trænerprofiler, Emilie Faurie.
- Gennem årene har vi set en større og større efterspørgsel fra det engelske marked, og det har nu ført til, at vi har indledt et samarbejde med en af Englands absolut største dressurryttere. Det er et privilegie at kunne byde Emile velkommen til vores team, fortæller Andreas, der glæder sig over at kunne yde den ekstra service for de engelske kunder.
Emile har repræsenteret England ved Verdens- og Europamesterskaberne samt ved OL. Han har en baggrund ved den verdenskendte P.S.I-auktion, som for alvor kickstartede hans karriere, og i 1993 slog han sit navn fast i international sammenhæng på hesten Virtu, da han vandt individuel bronze og holdsølv ved Europamesterskaberne i Hippica. Siden da har han tilføjet den ene medalje efter den anden – bedrifter, der vidner om hans uovertrufne evner som dressurrytter. Efter 2 år ved Hof Kasselmann, hvor Emile bl.a. deltog ved Verdensmesterskabet i Tryon på Dono Di Maggie og Europamesterskaberne i Göteborg på Lollipop, valgte Emile at blive en del af team Helgstrand.
- Andreas’ talent for at spotte og købe de bedste heste er virkelig noget, som vi kan drage fordel af i England, og det kan tilføje den kvalitet, som vi efterspørger. Jeg oplever en større og større efterspørgsel, og derfor glæder jeg mig over samarbejdet. Jeg besluttede mig for at blive en del af Helgstrand-teamet pga. Andreas’ integritet og hans ønske om altid at finde det perfekte match mellem hest og rytter, udtalte Emile om samarbejdet.
Emilie Fauries team har allerede høstet flere sejre på konkurrencebanerne, bl.a. har 6-årige Straight Horse De Milla vundet sin første M-klasse med 76,6%.
Emile Faurie er bosat på Heath Farm i Oxfordshire, som nu fungerer som ny salgsstald for Helgstrand. Heath Farm ligger kun en times kørsel fra London, hvilket gør det nemt for kunder at komme til og fra.
Teaming up with the world’s best
In the pursuit of being the world’s leading company in the equestrian industry, Helgstrand Dressage continuously establishes collaborations with some of the world’s best riders and trainers. The purpose of the partnerships is not only the development of horses but also for seizing the opportunity to address new markets of the home country of the new partner.

Collaboration with the best dressage rider in Denmark, Cathrine Dufour
It is no surprise, that Cathrine Dufour was on the top of the wish list when it comes to new business partners in Denmark. Cathrine has succeeded in making herself very well-known in the international dressage league as she several times has fought the world’s best riders to the last. At the prestigious SAAB Top 10 – a competition only for world ranking’s 10 best riders – she managed to make her best ride of 2019, and with a score of almost 90% in the freestyle, she won the competition, even outperforming Isabell Werth. This day, there was a new danish record and Cathrine officially became a part of the small crowd that has ever managed to reach such impressively high notes.
As the partnership was initiated in 2018, Cathrine expressed:
- I am incredibly proud that I get such an opportunity. Through many years, I have been in dialogue with Andreas. Getting the opportunity to train some of the world’s best horses is an honour to me, and I’m absolutely thrilled about this collaboration, Cathrine tells.
Cathrine has numerous medals from Danish, Nordic and European championships, several Grand Prix victories and with a world ranking as number 5 with Atterupgaards Cassidy, she is indeed among the world elite. Already aged 24, Cathrine attended her first Olympics with Cassidy, where she managed to be the best Dane with an overall individual rank as number 13. Her big goal is to win a gold medal at the Olympics – she is working every day determinedly towards this.
- We are delighted that Cathrine has agreed to commence a partnership with us. She has managed to develop young horses to Grand Prix level and the number of victories speaks for itself. She holds an incredible work ethic and is very well- disciplined – certainly, this is the reason for already having had such success compared to others of her age, Andreas tells.
Cathrine has already had several of victories and placements on the horses that she is training for us – for example, she reached a 4th place with Straight Horse Don Zuan (Zack/ Don Schufro) with the score 92,0% in the young horse championship for 5 year-olds while she managed to qualify for the 6-year-old championship with the score 93,0% in 2020. In 2019 she was placed 6th in the 5-year-old championship with Eternity (Escolar/ Sir Donnerhall I), while she won the MB0 with 81,41% in Ringsted Sports Rideklub in 2020.
Cathrine is based in Roskilde, in the middle part of Sealand on Grønagergård, which now acts as a sales stable for Helgstrand Dressage.

Helgstrand in collaboration with one of Great Britain’s top coaches, Emile Faurie
In 2020 Helgstrand could welcome one of the leading rider- and coaching profiles in Great Britain, Emile Faurie.
- Throughout the years, we have seen a bigger demand from the British market – this has now led to the establishment of a partnership with one of Great Britain’s absolute best dressage riders. It is now a privilege to welcome Emile to our team, Andreas says – he is pleased that he can now offer this extra service for the British clients.
Emile has represented Great Britain at the World - and European Championships as well as the Olympics. He has a background from the world-famous PSI auction, that kickstarted his career and in 1993 he succeeded for real internationally with the horse Virtu as he won a bronze medal individually and a team silver medal at the European Championships in Hippica. Since then he has won several medals – all of them symbolizing his impressive skills as a dressage rider. After having spent 2 years at Hof Kasselmann, where Emile attended among others the World Championships in Tryon with Dono Di Maggie as well as the European Championships in Göteborg with Lollipop, Emile chose to become a part of the Helgstrand team.
- Andreas’s talent for scouting and buying the absolute best horses is definitely something, that we can take advantage from in Great Britain, and it can add the quality that we demand. I experience great demand, and that way I am looking very much forward to this partnership. I decided to become a part of the Helgstrand team because of Andreas’ integrity and his endeavours in always trying to make the best match between horse and rider, Emile stated.
Emile Faurie’s team has already had great success on the show grounds, where the 6-year old Straight Horse De Milla has won her first M- class with a 76,6% score.
Emile Faurie is based at Heath Farm in Oxfordshire, that now has the function of a sales stable for Helgstrand Dressage. Heath Farm is only a one-hour drive from London, making it very convenient for the customers to get back and forth to the location.
Det bedste fra to verdener
Sammen med det eksklusive brand Hublot, der designer ure af højeste kvalitet, har Helgstrand skabt et ur, som samler det bedste fra de to verdener. Hublots imponerende håndværk, materialer af allerhøjeste kvalitet og innovative design kombineret med de unikke detaljer fra hesteverdenen.
Uret findes kun i 50 eksemplarer, som fordeler sig på to damemodeller og én herremodel.
Uret indeholder nøje udvalgte detaljer fra Helgstrand og således verdenskendte Blue Hors Matiné, som har en særlig plads i Andreas' hjerte – en unik detalje, fordi hun udgør en særlig rolle i Andreas’ succes og Helgstrands historie. På samme måde, som uret indeholder noget ”gammelt”, var det også vigtigt, at det indeholdt noget ”nyt” for at signalere Helgstrands ambitiøse mål om at blive verdens førende ridesportsvirksomhed ved at inkludere Helgstrands nye bomærke præget ind i læderet.
- Vi lagde meget vægt på, at uret skulle indeholde noget fra vores verden, men på en diskret måde. For os er det vigtigt, at alle kan identificere sig med designet, uden nødvendigvis at have interesse for heste. Det klassiske og elegante Hublot-design skulle helst være det første, man ser, og når man så kigger nærmere på uret, opdager man de små finesser. Alt det, der gør uret unikt, fortæller Andreas.
|Big Bang UNICO Special Edition “Helgstrand”
Uret er designet i fællesskab med Hublot og tager sit udgangspunkt i det storslåede UNICO-ur med unikke detaljer fra Helgstrand. Med største finesse og avanceret teknologi er uret fremstillet i bedste Hublot-stil. Materialerne er valgt uden nogen form for kompromis. Med unikke detaljer kombineret med et sort klassisk look, fuldender uret enhver mands stil og er et must-have til manden, der har alt.

The best from two worlds
Together with the exclusive brand Hublot, who designs highly innovative watches without compromise, Helgstrand has created a watch, which comprises the best from two worlds. The Hublot craftsmanship, high-quality material and innovative design in combination with unique details from the horse world.
Only 50 watches have been produced, allocated on respectively two ladies watches and one men’s watch.
Are you living out the passion as we do?
Always looking for the very best, we chose to work together with Hublot, designing the very first Helgstrand watch. Always, Andreas and Marianne have loved the uniqueness of Hublot. It’s like horses – by designing your own watch you will have the uniqueness you find in every horse.
The watches include carefully selected details from the Helgstrand brand. World-famous Matiné, which has a special place in Andreas’ heart embellishes the clock face – a significant detail and a very important part of the history of Helgstrand. Like having something “old”, we needed to include something new to signal the very ambitious goals Helgstrand seeks to reach in becoming the world’s largest equestrian company by including the new heritage mark striked into the watch strap.
- We notice every day in our daily routines of the business, that our clients demand the exceptional – the perfect match. Hublot differentiates from other producers on the market, by only producing a limited number of every model. With this watch, we feel that we can share a bit of our world and hope that some would like to be a part of the Helgstrand lifestyle by acquiring one of these 50 extraordinary pieces, Andreas concludes.

Helgstrand focuses on sustainability
The UN has set 17 sustainable development goals, which is meant to set the course towards more sustainable development in the world. At Helgstrand Dressage, we see it as our job to contribute to a more sustainable world, which is why we work determinedly on living up to the standards of the goals set by the UN, in any way we can. It’s a continuous process, which is why we’ll continue to include more of the partial goals in our company.
When referring to Helgstrand Dressage, it is all of our locations, including Helgstrand Dressage, Ny Ravnstrup, Helgstrand Academy, Helgstrand Dressage USA, and Helgstrand Germany.
At Helgstrand Dressage we’ve installed air-to-water heat pumps in all the places this source is deemed possible. We strive for prioritizing this sustainable energy source highly in our future constructions and buildings.
When we renovated and build at Ny Ravnstrup, we also installed solar collectors and heat pumps. The already existing solar collectors are know supplemented with five 20 kW air-to-water heat pumps, which warm up the 1.400 square meters of housing and delivers warm water to both the staff and horses.
We’ve started to change all the light bulbs from regular light bulbs to LED light bulbs, again to reduce our resources and think of the environment.
When establishing our new industrial kitchen, starting in spring 2020, we are already working on several energy-saving ideas.
Sustainable cities and communities
This part goal from the UN is dedicated to the developing countries' residential areas and their development towards becoming more independent and sustainable local communities.
This does not relate directly to Helgstrand Dressage and their effort for the local community - but yet again. Helgstrand Dressage has more than approximately 100 employees from the local community and also many local partners. We always try to use local companies for various jobs, such as new constructions, purchasing of straw/hay/horse feed, food suppliers for our canteen, etc.
We are also very aware, that the support of the local people and the area surrounding Helgstrand Dressage has been a part of the company’s success. Helgstrand Dressage gets a lot of support and understanding from the local society for their vision and actions, for example, the big international competition, Equitour Denmark, where many local unions contribute to the conduction of the event.
All the manure disposal from Helgstrand Dressage is being reused for biogas. The facility is located close to Helgstrand Dressage and thus making the transport shorter and deduce less CO2. With the extraction of biogas from the manure, the nutrients are better utilized in agriculture and at the same time, the biogas is renewable energy which can be stored in large containers.
There are even more assets of the biogas. Also, the thinner version of slurry and the compressed dry matter from the manure is easier for the plants to absorb and thus makes them grow faster.
The neighbors to farms have often been bothered with the smell of slurry in the spring. But when the manure has been through a biogas facility, the smell is reduced up to 80%.
We only use locally produced bedding (straw) at all our premises, and this minimizes the transport of the straw and therefore also minimizes the outlet of CO2 on transportation. The same applies when we purchase hay or horse feed. From 2019 we’ve been self-sufficient with haylage after purchasing Ny Ravnstrup and therefore minimizing the CO2 outlet since the haylage only will be transported for 5 km at the most.
All our hay and haylage is produced without the use of pesticides.
Health and wellbeing
Health and wellbeing amongst our workers are one of our primary focus points - including both the physical and psychological health and wellbeing.
To increase physical health and wellbeing at the workplace we’ve taken many new actions. These actions are an ongoing process and are constantly developing.
We have a lot of focus on security at Helgstrand Dressage, including preventing injuries/accidents by using the legal signage, marked roads, provided safety footwear, and a helmet is commanded when riding and at veterinarian checks and so forth.
Furthermore, we have started a partnership with a physiotherapist and masseuse, which all our employees may use.
Helgstrand Dressage offers and encourages all their employees to have a health insurance and pension scheme through the company.
The wellbeing goal for Helgstrand Dressage is a workplace, where everyone regardless of their job description thrives and is happy to go to work every day. Therefore we also priorities the social work environment at Helgstrand Dressage. Throughout the year we have numerous social events for the staff, consisting of both those with an educational purpose, team-building exercises, lectures, also purely social events/parties with great food and fun, or a trip to the movies.
At Helgstrand Dressage we priorities that our co-workers are educated for the job they are doing. Furthermore, we uphold the statutory requirements of certification of personnel working with machines, tools, etc., as well as educated personnel being work environment representatives, etc.
Since we are a company with various work areas and nationalities, we are - along with our partners - often in charge of the education of our personnel. For example, our new grooms are always paired with an older groom and are educated by them. The same applies to our handymen.
Our stable manager is in cooperation with our partner, Højgård Hestehospital, educated and guided in the care-taking of sick and injured horses, as well as in feeding the horses correctly by consultants from the feeding company, etc.
In addition, we have trained personnel in every aspect of the company. From the economy, master riders, animal keepers with horses as their specialty, agronomists, electricians, and many more.
At Helgstrand Dressage we have many young people employed, who are often hired for a year's time before they start their education.
Helgstrand Dressage has a great responsibility for these young people. They are asked which education they want, we check up on application deadlines for the selected education, evaluation on rejects, etc. For this job, we have a former teacher with extra education in student counseling.
Due to the above, as well as the statutory additions, Helgstrand Dressage was awarded the green smiley from the Danish Working Environment Service in December 2018. This means that Helgstrand Dressage has no unresolved issues with the Danish Working Environment service. The green smiley shows the outside that our work environment is well managed. The green smiley is valid for 3 years.
Inspired by the sad story of Maria Claumarch, who, based on an accident with a horse, lost her right leg, Helgstrand Dressage has chosen to establish a grant, with the purpose of helping riders realize their goals. Maria had the goal, that the accident shouldn't stop her doing the things, she loved like riding.
- I know how difficult it would be for me if I wasn’t able to ride every day. For us, the horses are our way of life and it is our great passion, says Andreas Helgstrand, CEO and founder of Helgstrand Dressage.
About the Helgstrand grant
The Helgstrand grant is awarded once a year based on an application round. In order to apply for the grant, you must be a rider and have a riding goal you are aiming for. Big, as well as small goals, are welcome no matter if it is jumping or dressage riders. In order to be a candidate, the applicant must make a video in English in which the applicant presents themselves and their goal and describes how the grant will help the applicant achieve their goal. It is possible for both Danish and foreign riders to be considered for the grant.
The deadline for applying is between April 1st and May 1st every year, and the grant will be given during Equitour Denmark, which is held at Helgstrand Academy in May. The grant has a value of 10.000 DKK. In order to be able to select the right recipient amongst the applicants, a jury has been founded, consisting of General Manager and rider, Thomas Sigtenbjerggaard, Manager of Helgstrand Academy and rider, Maria Anita Andersen, and CEO and founder, Andreas Helgstrand.

Recipents of Helgstrand's grant
2020: Lucas Virum
15-year-old Lucas convinced us with his fantastic presentation of himself and his horse Chester that he should be the recipient of the Helgstrand grant in 2020. Lucas is a show jumper and he is very focused on developing his skills as a rider, and here he thought the grant could help him get some more professional help from one of Germany’s leading trainers and Helgstrand’s business partner, Rolf-Göran Bengtsson. We cross our fingers that Lucas reaches his goals and wish him all the best of luck.
2019: Maria Clumarch
Maria was the first to receive the grant.
The touching story about Maria Claumarch has spread like rings in the water, and especially within the horse world since the prosthetic she has been given can’t be used for riding. With this in mind, her friends and family started a fundraiser for a prosthetic, which she could use for riding.
The idea of this grant is to give it to persons, who have set up a goal and do what it takes to realize it. Maria wanted to participate at the World Championships in 2022 in Herning, to show that you can do what you want. But we welcome both small and big goals, when applying for the grant.
Just before Chritsmas in 2019, Maria succeded in collecting the 150,000 DKK in order to get the riding prosthetic. From Helgstrand Dressage we wish Maria good luck.
