Raising the most exclusive selection of high quality foals and youngsters
The skilled team of professionals at Helgstrand Dressage is continuously looking for talented foals and youngsters deriving from the best performance lines in the world. Esben Møller, Head of Purchasing at Helgstrand, visits breeders and auctions to scout young dressage talents. Helgstrand Dressage purchases approximately 70-100 foals per year.
Helgstrand Youngsters is the home of Helgstrand’s young dressage prospects. The buildings are light, spacious and well ventilated. With a free ranging group housing system, high quality feed and 115 hectares of land, Helgstrand Youngsters provides optimal welfare conditions to its residents. The horses are daily screened by our team of professionals including our permanent veterinarian Zenta Vinther, who is specialised in reproduction techniques. We are pleased that with Helgstrand Youngsters we can ensure a great start for the future career of our foals.
By having our own rearing facilities, we have the ability to follow the development of a foal into a high-quality dressage horse. This journey gives us very valuable information about each horse. With Helgstrand Youngsters we are able to develop an ongoing selection of the horses in order to collect and offer only the very best horses. The youngsters are continuously evaluated on their quality traits and sport potential by our experts.
