International show in Hagen
Today, Andreas is off to the huge, international show in Hagen. He is bringing the 10-year-old mare Polka Hit Nexen, and they will participate in the German Grand Prix tournament Louisdor-Preis. Furthermore, Andreas and the 8-year-old gelding Laetare will make their debut in the international 4-star Grand Prix. It will be Laetare's first appearance in an international field, and we are awaiting the result with great excitement.
Unfortunately, Andreas' other Grand Prix horse Tacolando Triple will not be at the show in Hagen, as he has not been feeling quite well the past couple of days.
Terrific stallion show and clinic
This year's stallion show at Møgelmosegaard was a huge success. Approx. 1,500 people filled the indoor riding hall and contributed to a really great and warm atmosphere. All the stallions, including the four 3-years-old stallions, entered the packed riding hall with a cool overview, and they all made an optimum performance.
We are extremely grateful for the fantastic support we experienced last Saturday, with visitors from the entire Jutland, Funen and Zealand. In addition, it was a real pleasure to welcome so many foreign visitors from e.g. Sweden, Holland and Germany.
From Monday, videos of all the stallions from this year's stallion show will be available here on our webpage.
