Danish equestrian magazine Ridehesten broke the news that the 7-year old Danish warmblood Atterupgaards Cassidy sold to Danish junior rider Cathrine Dufour. The chestnut gelding arrived at Dufour's stable on Thursday 3 June 2010.
Atterupgaards Cassidy is bred by Kristine and Michael Sinding of brood farm Atterupgaard in Denmark. The gelding is by Caprimond x Donnerhall and is one of the more successful young dressage horses in Denmark.
Under Sanne Henningsen Cassidy won the 4-year old DSA Young Horse Championships. Under Sabine Petersen he competed at the 2008 World Championships for Young Dressage Horses and qualified for the 2009 World Championships.
The now 7-year old chestnut is Prix St Georges ready and will be Dufour's new Junior Rider's horse. Trained by Rune Willum, Dufour also campaigns Cadillac (by Oldtimer xx), Aithon (unregistered) and Don Dino (by Don Cardinale). With Cadilliac she is 2009 Danish Champion and with Aithon she won the 2009 Nordic Baltic Championships.
