New exciting young stallion acquired
We have just acquired a new, very exciting young stallion: the reserve champion stallion from the stallion licensing in KWPN in Holland. The beautiful 3-year-old stallion is by Dream Boy and with Jazz as dam sire. Throughout the licensing, he has made a very positive impression, showing a really nice exterior and 3 extremely good gaits. He is a fantastic stallion, and we are looking very much forward to getting him home to our stables.
Severo and Lorenzo won Grand Prix
At a national show in Esbjerg this weekend, Maik and Møllegårdens Pas Partout started their first Intermediare II; it turn out to be a great debut as the couple scored 68.24% and finished second in the class.
Saturday, Severo and Lorenzo started Grand Prix; the couple won a clear victory with a score of 71.60%.
Congratulations to Maik and Severo, and of course also to the owners of both horses.
Check out our new video of Revolution. He has only been under rider for about a month, and we are incredibly proud to have a stallion like him in our stables; he is a very special horse. As appears from the video, his gaits are really extraordinary, and at the same time, he has a fantastic temper.
We are so grateful to have him in our stables, and we look forward to an exciting future with him.
Stallion show in the UK
The first stallion show for us this year takes place tomorrow, January 9, at New Bury Farm in England. In the autumn, we accepted an invitation from Elitestallions, our distributor of semen in England, to come and show some of our stallions at the annual stallion show organised by "The British Bred Sports Horse". We will be showing our 4 oldest stallions: Franklin and Galaxy under Severo, and Vincent Maranello and Don Deluxe under Thomas. All stallions are in good shape after the long trip and ready for the show tomorrow.

Lorenzo – Spanish contender for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.
The German bred warmblood horse Lorenzo by Lord Loxley/Rubin Royal,
born 2006, has since the age of 3 been owned by the Danish family
Earlier this year the horse was placed in training with Helgstrand
Dressage where it has been ridden by the reigning world champion for 5
year old dressage horses, 2014 and 2015 winner of the Danish Warmblood
championship for young horses, international GP-rider Severo Jesus
Over the year the horse has proved a tremendous development especially
in the most difficult tests of the dressage discipline.
It is therefore with pride and ambition that we jointly hereby
announce the sale of Lorenzo to Severo with the declared intention to
qualify and participate in the 2016 Rio Olympic Games representing
Severo’s mother country Spain.
