Superb results at ability tests during the weekend
During the weekend, Helgstrand Dressage participated in the ability tests in region 6 on Saturday and in region 7 on Sunday. Saturday, Maik Kohlschmidt rode the stallion Møllegårdens Pas Partout and the gelding Skovvangs Barok. Both horses did really well, and they obtained the exact same number of points: 880, and finished second.
At the ability test on Sunday, Marianne Helgstrand and Thomas Sigtenbjerggaard participated. They both did really well too, Marianne obtained an amazing score of 920 points, winning the class on the gelding Shakiro Pilekær, and Thomas placed 2nd with the mare Torino Melody, obtaining 850 points. Hopefully all 4 horses will make it to the Young Horse Championship in Herning in 2012.
Next weekend, Anna Blomgren will participate in the last ability test this year in Sdr. Hygum. She will be riding the mare Tørveslettens Snowflake, Team Helgstrand is hoping for a good result for Anna as well.
