Right before the 2017 Swedish Dressage Championships in Stromsholm, Swedish young horse selectors Bo Jena and Jan-Ove Olsson had their first assessment of their country's candidates that are vying for team selection for the 2017 World Championships for Young Dressage Horses in Ermelo, The Netherlands, on 3 - 6 August 2017.
On Friday 2 June 2017 the youngsters met in Stromsholm to be judged by Wiveca Schenholm, Susanne Rudholm and Johan Ekenberg per age group.
In the 5-year old division Jeanna Hogberg and Christina Olsson's Swedish warmblood mare Astoria (by Sir Donnerhall II x Quaterback) bested the field with 85.00 points. Camilla Lindh and Anette Syren's Swedish stallion Klifton (by Floricello x Briar) were the runners-up with 82.00, edging out Michael Alderin-Danielsson on Frederic Spang's Swedish gelding Hilus (by Johnson x Don Primero) on 77.200 points.
Martin Agevall and the Swedish mare Romeona (by Don Romantic x Briar) were the winners in the 6-year old division and the only pair to crack the 80 points barrier. Karin Oljemark steered Maria Agren's Swedish gelding Tiger G (by Tuschinski x Sir Donnerhall) to a second place with 78.400 points, while Lotta Jerhammer Cidheden and the Swedish mare Chloe (by Connaisseur x Sandakan), owned by Isabelle Engvall Vogel, were third with 77.80.
Only a small group of five 7-year olds came to Stronsholm so the pickings were slim. Jeanna Hogberg topped the board on Bkarje Laustsen's Oldenburg mare Diva Nostra (by Detroit x Charon) with a 72.944% score. Asa Gamvik and the Swedish gelding Bardeeno (by Belamour x Dionysos) finished second with 70.482, while Mads Hendeliowitz and the Swedish stallion Autograf Q (by Ampere x Jazz) were third with 70.177.
