The 40th anniversary of the Danish Warmblood stallion licensing in MCH Messecenter Herning will be a big celebration taking place 6-10 March 2019. As soon as you arrive at the Danish Warmblood stallion licensing, it’s 40th anniversary will be immediately apparent. Among many new initiatives you will notice the Stallion Licensing Museum which leads you through the period 1980 - 2019.
Throughout the 40 years of the stallion licensing, young stallions have taken their first steps in the spotlight, some have been celebrated as premium stallions, while others have been decorated with the challenge trophies. Annually since 1998, a stallion has been appointed as Danish Warmblood’s ‘stallion of the year’, and each year they have been immortalized with an oil painting. In Herning the paintings of the first 21 title winners will be exhibited for the world to see, as easels holding the stallion portraits will form a Walk of Fame avenue during he stallion licensing. Similarly, the names of the most prominent breeding stallions and sport horses will have their names engraved in a star in the floor, says director Casper Cassøe Krüth.
