Around 80 stallions will travel to Herning during the second week of March 2022 to take part in the Danish Warmblood Stallion Licensing which, once again, shows signs of becoming an outstanding European Finale.

The Danish Warmblood Stallion Licensing takes place from March9-13, 2022 in Herning and is the location where breeding and sport come together on a large scale. Alongside the stallion licensing of dressage and jumping stallions, you find the Danish Warmblood Young Horse Championships for the best five-year-old dressage and jumping horses, numerous competition classes for stallions, a CSI3* with many international showjumpers, a CDI3*, and not least a CDI5* with some of the best dressage riders and dressage horses in the world.
To top it all off, you will find one of the largest tack fairs in the northern hemisphere on the very same showgrounds, plus Friday as well as Saturday night you may want to be entertained by the unique Gala Show featuring international artists in addition to some of the best Danish Warmblood stallions and mares under rider.
The stallion licensing itself is quite the crowd-puller. Not only are the best youngsters selected at the DWB pre-selection, but exclusively for the group of three-year-olds they are joined by 15 colts from the German licensings that are now owned or co-owned by the Danish stallion keepers Helgstrand Dressage and Blue Hors. Most of these are premium stallions from the German licensings, and some are either champion stallions or the most expensive lots at the German stallion auctions.
The Danish Warmblood Stallion Licensing in Herning is definitely the place where you will be able to see and enjoy the most stallions. They stables are open to visitors, you will be able tp follow the entire licensing and, at the same time, see numerous international competition horses as well as young up-and-coming stars. n
