A total of eight stallions were presented at the Danish Warmblood post-selection at Vilhelmsborg in April, of which five were approved. The Danish Warmblood post-selection of stallions is open to those who, for various reasons, could not attend the stallion licensing in Herning in March.
Among the eight stallions participating in the post-selection, only a single one was a showjumper: Tannenberg Dree Böken (2016: Tangelo van de Zuuthoeve - Darco’s Rose x Darco) – a maternal great-grandson of Stakkato Gold, bred in Holland by Zuchthof Dree Böken.
Tannenberg Dree Böken was placed in the six-year-old final under the saddle of Christian Svendgaard during the World Breeding Championship for Young Horses in Lanaken last year. He must, however, now pass a five-day observation test to obtain a one-year covering permit.
Four dressage stallions approved
The breeding commission had the opportunity to evaluate the young stallions on a hard surface, on the lunge, and also loose in the arena. In addition, all four approved three-year-old stallions were shown under saddle and were awarded one-year covering permits and access to a 35-day test in the autumn.
Approved dressage stallions:
• Blue Hors Glamourville (Glamourdale x Londonderry
• Globall (Global Player DVH 1338 x Fürstenball DVE 1021)
• Jagger (Jameson RS2 x Franklin DVE 1147)
• Sénégal de Fontaine (Springbank II VH [SWB] DVH 1262 x Sezuan DVE 1110)
Sénégal de Fontaine has a very high maternal performance line, as his dam is Grand Prix mare Queenparks Wendy (Andreas Helgstrand), and he showed himself extremely well under the saddle of Mette Sejbjerg.
Approved jumping stallion:
• Tannenberg Dree Böken (Tangelo van de Zuuthoeve x Darco)
