Danish studbook’s representatives on a visit to France.


For the first time since its establishment, « Dansk Varmblood » studbook, which is wellknown for its dressage horses but also recognizing its gaps as regards breeding showjumping horses, has entrusted its breeding Commission to do a study tour in France in order to discover the Selle Français and our selection system […] on behalf of Tomy Jensen, Olympic dressage rider and trainer of Marzog, « Dressage Horse of Century » (which has also participated to high level showjumping classes) : « As a dressage rider, among all the horses we saw in France, Keops du Vinnebus (SCEA Levallois), 2001 Supreme Champion, has the characteristics we are looking forward. Keops du Vinebus (Arioso du Theillet) has got long limbs and a very harmonious model with a good neck compare to many other horses we saw which had a shorter neck. We think that the horses which present such a characteristic are easier to ride, and that whatever the discipline you practice. »
