Jovian and Andreas Helgstrand capture yet another World Championship
Our breeding stallion (by Apache/Tango) won the World Championship as a 5-year-old in 2019 – and following last year's cancellation due to the coronavirus, Jovian is now back with a much deserved second World Championship!
Bringing tears to the judges’ eyes, Jovian scored a 10 for his huge trot, a 9.8 for his powerful canter and a clear 10 for perspective. With a technical score of 83.143% and a whopping 89.136% in total, Jovian set the new world record.

Eternity claims bronze
In addition to Jovian’s emphatic win, Eternity 75 delivered an amazing performance with Anne-Mette Strandby Hansen, scoring 83.407% and the bronze medal.
Eternity was previously ridden by Cathrine Dufour, who handed over the reins to Anne-Mette during her preparations for the Tokyo Olympic Games. Building on Cathrine’s amazing work, Anne-Mette has done a beautiful job with the 7-year-old gelding, also reflected by the outstanding remarks from the judges.

What a day and what incredible horses we are surrounded by.
We wish to thank our breeders, riders, grooms and the entire team of professionals, who made this happen once again!
