For many years, there have been amateur tournaments in show jumping and with focus on the joy that these tournaments have led to, Almased Wellness and Helgtrand&Trabjerg have now chosen to join together to create the first amateur tournament for dressage equestrians; Almased Dressage Amateurs.

- We have decided to create an equivalent of the great show jumping tournaments for amateurs in order to give dressage equestrians the same opportunity to participate at the big tournaments as well. We are sure that the participants will have an extraordinary experience when they are having the opportunity to participate in the same top professional surroundings as some of the world's best dressage equestrians, says the founder of Equitour Aalborg and former national coach of show jumping, Jens Trabjerg.

- We are incredibly proud that Almased Wellness has chosen to support the project. We think, that Almased Dressage Amateures is a great initiative to help dressage equestrians on their way to an international career. The tournament can help to clarify the rider's level before seriously relying on an international career in the dressage sport. At the same time, we think that the locations for the tournament mean that more people from the north can test their current level without having to invest a lot of money in transport. International dressage competitions have so far been for a limited group of people, but we want to change that, adds Jens Trabjerg.

Almased Wellness is a German company that has developed products for the health of humans - products that has achieved great success throughout the world.

- It has always been part of our company policy to support sports both locally and internationally. We have developed health products that many athletes use, so when the chance offered to support the first dressage tournament for amateurs, there was no doubt that this project was within our area of ​​interest and thus a natural way to support our business, says Anette Witthöft from Almased Wellness.

Only 24 equestrians are allowed to participate at each show and in order to compete you have to apply.

The American rider Barbie Asplundh has previously bought horses at Helgstrand Dressage and this time she did not have to travel all the way to Denmark to see horses but could only visit Helgstrands newly established sales stable in Wellington, which every winter is transformed into a competition venue for top riders from all over the world.

In December 2017, Helgstrand Dressage launched a sales stable in Wellington, and 23 horses travelled to the new place. Among them were the two geldings, Garuda by Charmeur/Special D/Lux and Davos by Jazz/Sandro Hit/Silvano N. Two very talented horses, whom Barbie fell in love with during her visit at Helgstrand Dressage USA.

- Barbie has previously travelled to Vodskov, Denmark to see horses, but the fact that we can now show the horses in Wellington is just a great advantage. In addition to not having to travel to Denmark to see the horse, our American customers will also not have to take care of all the work involved in transporting a horse to another country - and that we think is first-class service, says Andreas Helgstrand.

- Thank you for bringing such fantastic horses to the USA. Being able to shop for them here was really wonderful. Not having to fly to Europe, and then not having to fly the horses here made a big difference in my decision to buy horses this winter, says Barbie Asplundh.

- There has already been an overwhelming interest in our horses in Wellington. We see a great need of top horses in USA and therefore we are sure, that we also next Winter will have a Helgstrand Dressage USA, says Andreas.

Just before new year, Helgstrand Dressage was able to reveal in its Christmas greetings with highlights from 2017 that Helgstrand is now ready to go for another exciting chapter in the Helgstrand history, a stallion station in Germany.

- 2017 has been another year with high demands for semen by our top stallions. In order to meet the growing demand from Germany in particular, we have chosen to establish a stallion station at Dr. Ulf Möller, who together with his wife, Eva is based at Center Sudenhof in Hagen, Andreas Helgstrand says proud.

Recently Helgstrand Dressage has opened a sales stable in Wellington, USA, and now they can take another exciting step with the stallion station in Hagen.

- We have not yet decided which stallions should be in Hagen, but it is important for us to point out that semen can be ordered from all stallions, wherever they are located, Andreas says.

To be manager of the new stallion station in Hagen, Helgstrand has chosen Michael Schmidt, who currently is employed by Gestüt Peterhof, but has chosen to resign in order to start at Helgstrand. The stallion station will open on February 1st.

Collaboration with Zuchthof Klatte continues

Helgstrand Dressage has for a long time been working closely together with Zuchthof Klatte in Lastrup, Germany and Andreas emphasises, that the cooperation will continue even though Helgstrand has established a branch in Germany.

- Zuchthof Klatte has been a great help in the desire to enter the German market. They have a huge network, and the entire team Klatte has many years of experience and thus able to offer competent consultancy to the many German breeders. For this reason, we continue the cooperation so that breeders can both order semen at Zuchthof Klatte and at our stallion station in Hagen, says Andreas.

Traditionally the annual stallion show at Zuchthof Klatte takes place on February 9th, where Helgstrand Dressage will participate with a selection of the best stallions, some of which will remain in Germany afterwards.
