Five dressage bred stallions have been approved for breeding at the 2016 Danish warmblood late licensing in Vilhelmsborg, Denmark, on 19 April 2016.
Eight stallions in total were presented at the licensing, seven were accepted of which two were show jumping bred and five dressage bred.
The five accepted dressage colts are Feel Good (by Furstenball x Friedensfurst), bred by Lone Boegh Henriksen and owned by Lars Stage and Belgian Bruno Vantomme, who successfully passed the 35-day performance testing but could not appear in Herning in March due to an injury. He was now accepted at the late licensing.
It was a sweet revenge for the Oldenburg bred Furst William (by Furst Wilhelm x Lord Sinclair). Last year the Danish stallion licensing committee rejected him, but the horse went on to win the Bundeschampionate six months later. Now the committee gave him a one-year breeding permit. The stallion is owned by HC Stables and Andreas Helgstrand, who also successfully presented the 2015 Oldenburg Licensing Champion Bonds (by Benicio x Sir Donnerhall). He has been approved pending his X-rays.
The Danish bred Gammelenggårds Zappa (by Zonik x Akinos), bred by Nanna Voss Jonsson and owned by Bjarke Laustsen and Johan Ifverson, was already approved for Swedish warmblood breeding and has now been accepted the Danish studbook.
The 16-year old Don Ruto (by Don Gregory x Rubinstein) is bred by Volkhard Folkers in Germany and for many years stood at stud at Gert-Jan van Olst's in The Netherlands. Now based at Danish stud Viegaard, Don Ruto is injured and was not presented under saddle. He was shown to the committee on the lunge line and accepted.
