Fantastic results for Helgstrand equestrians and stallions
Last weekend, many of Helgstrand Dressage’s horses have been away for competitions and have achieved great results.
Søren Wind placed as fourth at the European Championships
Our rider Søren Wind and Diego achieved an impressive result in the individual test at the European Championships for U25, last weekend. Last Friday, the couple had their first individual test and was placed as fourth with a total score of 70,59% - with this result, they were qualified for the final Sunday.
Sunday, in the freestyle final, Søren and Diego were once again placed as number four with a total score of 72,64%.
We wish Søren a big congratulation with all the great results this weekend.

Two stallions qualified for the German Bundeschampionat
Two of our stallions showed impressive quality in the qualification for the German Bundeschampionat final and achieved excellent results, both with the same rider in the saddle, Eva Möller.
Back in April, Helgstrand Dressage purchased the champion stallion from the Oldenburg Saddle licensing, Fynch Hatton, and this has proved to be a good decision. On Thursday 25th July, Fynch Hatton competed at the Oldenburger Landesturnier where he delivered a top performance and won the class for 3-year-old stallions. He got 8,5 for walk, 9,0 for trot, 10 for canter, 8,5 for education and 9,0 for type.
On Saturday 27th July, Fynch Hatton completed his second test and won with a total score of 9,1 and secured a spot for the final in the Bundeschampionat. He is now awarded the title Oldenburger Landeschampion.
On Friday 26 July, our popular breeding stallion, Valverde, also won his competition for 5-year-old horses and got 8,5 for walk, 9,0 for trot, 9,0 for canter, 8,5 for suppleness and 9,0 for total impression. He is now awarded the title as Westfalenchampion.
With this victory, Valverde secured his qualification for the finals in the Bundeschampionat. Last year, he also competed at the finals and won a silver medal, so we look forward to seeing some great results from him this year too.
Valverde has been a part of our stallion collection for two years, and you can see some of his offspring in the foal gallery here.
Both Valverde and Fynch Hatton are stationed in Germany.
