Valerie B was named the champion of the 2021 Danish Elite Mare Show which was held in Vilhelmsborg on 2 - 4 September 2021.
Three mares out of a group of 35 were decorated with the "gold medal," the highest distinction within Danish warmblood for mares. One received the title of Mare of the Year.
Thirty-five mares were shown under saddle on Sunday. The judging committed rewarded 17 of them with the bronze medal and 15 got silver. Three mares were selected to the premium ring and got the gold medal.
The 3-year-old Valerie B (by Revolution x Blue Hors Zack), bred Karin & Peer Gudbrandsen, claimed the title as DWB Dressage Mare of the Year 2021. Andreas Helgstrand bought the mare after the mare performance test this summer.
The two other Gold Medal mare were Faretti (by Franklin x Don Frederico), bred by Henrik Hansen and owned by Havgaard Horses, and Roxette (by Revolution x Quite Easy), bred by Stutteri Sorgenfri and owned Nordentoft.
"She is from Stenvang dam line, which produced many medal mares. The grand dam is a gold medal mare," said the DWB breeding consultant . "She could very well be a good choice to become a future WCYH medal winner. She is energetic and cadenced, she has an absolutely impressive walk and in both trot and canter she's off the ground with a powerful push."
