Brandbjergs Fiji

Picture: Brandtbjergs Fiji by Fynch Hatton.

Yesterday evening, the 1st online auction ended and a great number of international top-offspring was sold to new owners. 

On the first auction of the year, we had 21 carefully selected offspring by either Helgstrand or Schockemöhle stallions at stake - these were selected based on inspections in Denmark, Germany and The Netherlands.

Catalogue number 1, the lovely Fynch Hatton daughter, Brandtbjergs Fiji was without a doubt many’s favorite and ended with a price of no less than 79.500 EU and that way also became the highlight of the auction. Fiji is bred in Denmark by Erik Buhl, however she will now have a bright future ahead with her new home by the German Olympics rider Sissy Max-Theurer at Gestüt Vorwerk. The second-highest price of the auction was catalogue number 7, Tonight’s Symphony by Totals/Sir Donnerhall who was sold for 30.000 EUR. 

-It is absolutely amazing- we are thrilled. Our experience with the whole process related to this online auction has been very good. And it is always a pleasure to sell a horse to a professional, Erik Buhl says

Watch all the foals here!

- As usual, our expectations are high, but an average price of 135.000 DKK and a price highlight of 600.000 DKK is very well, and I think we can be very satisfied! I already look forward to the next auction, Esben Möller says.

This weekend team Helgstrand was busy showing the youngsters in Billund.

With the qualifications for the DRF Young Horse championships, Helgstrand horses and riders were present in all young horse classes.

We can proudly mention the results of the weekend:

In the 4-year-old qualification, Eric Guardia and Freddie Murcury by Fürstenball won the class with 8,7, Merita Hagren and Fan Amour by Foundation came in 2nd with 8,4 and placed as number 5 was Moisés Azuar and Sir Floresco by Sir Heinrich with 8,2.

Marianne Helgstrand and Elverhøjs Raccolto won the 7-year-old qualification with 8,1.


Helgstrand Jewellery is growing, and we are therefore searching for an extra set of hands to showcase and sell jewellery at different events in Denmark, Europe and USA – of course in consideration of COVID-19.

You will be able to influence your own work path in Helgstrand Jewellery. Most importantly, we strive to find a person who can come along on the journey to different exhibitions and shows, but concurrently with your results, you can get more responsibility.

We imagine that you:

- Are very accommodating

- Are fluent in English

- Have good communication skills

- Proven sales experience (preferably from the jewellery industry, however this is not a requirement)

No matter how well we plan and structure our activities, sudden events can be added to the calendar, and we therefore wish to find an adaptable person. It is not crucial, that you live in Denmark – most important is that you are ready to travel abroad for shorter periods during the year. We will collaboratively determine the workload.

Start as soon as possible.

Cathrine Dufour and former Helgstrand horse, Vamos Amigos entered the arena Saturday in Compiegne, France with great success and won the class!

With no less than 76,48% she managed to move to the top of the class in front of Charlotte Fry and Everdale in the 3* Grand Prix Special today. Vamos Amigos was previously in the stables of Helgstrand Dressage where he was educated by Marianne Helgstrand.

In 2019 he was sold to Annabella Pidgley through our partner Cathrine Dufour, who continued the development of Vamos Amigos.

“I am proudly watching Cathrine and Vamos winning today in such a tough competition. It is a rather special couple, these two. A couple of years ago, we sold the horse to one of Cathrine’s clients. We never doubted that this horse had the potential and Cathrine really illustrates this today,” Andreas Helgstrand says proudly.

We would like to congratulate the Pidgley family and Cathrine on the great results!

Pictures: Springbank II VH with Betina Jæger and Valverde with Eva Möller.

In record time, Helgstrand Dressage has developed to become one of the most successful dressage stables in the world with extraordinary results based on a very solid and skilled team. Numerous of Champion stallions, Bundeschampions, World Champions and winners of championships – not to mention all the impressive results from previous Helgstrand-horses all around the world. All very desirable horses that attract much attention - this time by the German rider Yara Reichert. Yara has secured two outstanding dressage horses: 7-year-old Valverde by Vitalis/Ampére (bred by Reesink Pferde) and 7-year-old Springbank II VH by Skovens Rafael/De Niro (bred by Tobias Hansson/ Västra Hoby Stuteri AB).

-It means a lot to me when a rider as Yara reaches out to me to help her find the perfect match. The fact, that she falls in love with the two best breeding stallions is a great recognition of the whole team. The success does not only lie with the one who finds and selects the good stallions, but also with the whole team that ensures the education and healthy development, preparing them for the most difficult exercises of the dressage sport, Andreas says. He looks very much forward to following Yara and the stallions on their journey towards Grand Prix.

Valverde and Springbank II VH are some of the most popular stallions in the stallion collection – not only in Denmark, but also globally. They both show great qualities and talent for the difficult exercises making them very promising as Grand Prix horses. With Eva Möller in the saddle, Valverde has delivered a huge number of impressive results including: Winner of the Westphalia Championship three times in a row, 5-year-old Bundeschampion, Silver medalist as a 4-year-old while also being Champion Stallion in Westphalia. At the same time, Springbank II VH has ruled the Swedish show grounds with especially three Championship titles, recently with Betina Jæger. Moreover, Springbank II VH impressed the breeding commission in Danish Warmblood and took the title as Champion Stallion while also sovereignly winning his 35-day test.

-We select some of the best horses in the world and these two stallions are not only in possession of qualities much-coveted by breeders but also great abilities and qualities that look promising for top sport performances. It is unfortunate that we disappoint the breeders by not having the horses in our stables any longer, but we hope that everyone is interested in watching the horses develop and become a part of the international elite – this is definitely something both stallions deserve, Andreas adds and continues: luckily the breeders can be happy that both horses still will be available for breeding.

Greater demand than ever

-We are proud that we have developed a concept demanded by top riders from all over the world, however, we would like to encourage the breeders to continuously combine the strongest bloodlines in order to continue the production of even more top dressage horses. They are in high demand right now – especially the 5-7-year-olds - and we actually have a hard time supplying the customers with horses, Andreas concludes.

Semen orders 2021

Valverde and Springbank II VH will be available by frozen semen during this year’s breeding season.
