Sister of Fiontini claimed Champion Title27-08-2019 - 08:16

Everyone at the Danish Warmblod KRAFFT Elite Show has been in for a treat during Sunday afternoon which was dedicated to young dressage mares. The quality has been sky high, and the two champion mares were nothing short of outstanding

Around 75% of the foals registered in Danish Warmblood are bred for dressage, and Danish Warmblood dressage horses have an internationally high reputation. Let alone in the month of August 2019 Danish Warmblood dressage horses won a medal in all three age categories at the FEI/WBFSH World Breeding Championships for Young Horses where five of the nine medallists were sired by a DWB stallion.


Later this month, DWB gelding Atterupgaard Cassidy claimed a bronze medal at the FEI European Championships where three DWB horses made the cut into the Freestyle.


16 fillies born in 2017 competed to become the best 2-year old dressage filly. After having viewed and evaluated all contestants the judges selected six finalists by Blue Hors Farrell, Franklin, Ibiza, Revolution and Tailormade Temptation. Among the finalists were two daughters of Franklin from the same breeder, Henrik Hansen, who had a colt foal that became the show jumping champion in foal finals Saturday.


For Henrik Hansen Sunday was another day for a champion title. Two years ago his Franklin filly foal Faretti became the champion dressage filly foal but this time her stable mate Fransisca by Franklin x Blue Hors Romanov took the champion title as 2-year-old Dressage Filly of the Year. This dark bay filly is a half-sister of the world famous Fiontini who was a triple young horses world champion and is now a successful Grand Prix horse.


The judges described Fransisca as a well-developed and noble filly of outstanding type and with great expression in all three paces. Her walk is rhythmic, the trot is excellent with very active hindlegs and uphill tendency whilst the canter is ground covering and with good impulsion.
