March 2022 saw the return of top-level sport and breeding to Herning, when Danish Warmbood hosted an outstanding program for its 42nd stallion show, exuding power, enthusiasm, excitement, and joy for all concerned.

After a Covid-19 lock-down lasting precisely two years, everyone was once again ready, and nearly 60,000 visitors from Denmark and abroad made the trip to Herning, celebrating a great many highlights during the five-day event.
The annual Danish Warmblood stallion show is, of course, about licensing stallions, alongside the Young Horse Championship finals in both jumping and dressage, international CSI-1* and CSI-3* showjumping, CDI-3* and CDI-5* dressage, as well as presentation classes for stallions and a well-attended Gala Show.

The program for the stallion show runs over five days in three different arenas and this year included the three-year-olds, plus 16 jumping and 34 dressage stallions for licensing. Overall, 11 jumping and 18 dressage stallions were approved; seven jumping and two dressage stallions being awarded ‘premium’.
Danish breeders have been privileged by both high- quality Danish-bred stallions for the licensing, and also a huge crop of champion and premium stallions from foreign studbooks, which have been part of the Danish Warmblood scene over the last couple of years. This of course adds a dynamic component to the event, and ensures a true traction-patch for the breeding world... To read the complete article you need to be a subscriber
