Gold and bronze for Helgstrand Dressage equestrians at the U25 Danish Championships
On June 10, 2019, the Danish Championship final were held for U25 during Equitour and there was no doubt who will end up with the gold.
Victoria and Ludwig der Sonnenkönig 2 was in the leading in both Grand Prix, Grand Prix Kür and Intermediare II, and secured the gold in the last test with 79.3%.
- I have had three good tests with Ludwig and he absolutely were at his best behavior. I am very proud of him and our new title, says Victoria Vallentin.
Furthermore, the top 3 consisted of another equestrian from Helgstrand Dressage, Søren Wind, who won bronze with Diego 471. Søren and Diego had their final test yesterday and got 72.7% and were only a few point away from the silver medal.
- I am so happy with the development Diego and I have had through the last few competitions. The first day at the Danish Championship he went really well! On the second day we had three big mistakes but in the Kür he was really good again! In this week he has some time off while I’m in Stockholm with Stanford before the training starts for the Nordic Championship in late June, says Søren Wind.
Both Victoria and Søren will participate in the Nordic Baltic Championships and this year will be Søren Winds last year as U25 rider.
For Seniors, Marianne Helgstrand and Lollipop 126 were placed as No. 8, while Betina Jæger and Heartbreaker were placed as No. 9 at the Danish Championship for Seniors.
