Mountain had his eventing debut in the rain today. He was beyond amazing and jumped double clear! We won both the showjumping and the XC which resulted in a victory with a massive lead in CNC70!

 

29 August:
Dancer has moved to her new home in Sweden. We are very excited about this filly's future and look forward to following her!

Cassini was sold to an 11 year old girl in December. They are now competing in jumping at regional level. Today they got a 2nd place in the regional championship for teams!   

11 August: Royan has moved to his new home. He now has his own 14 year old girl to attend to his every need

 

2 August:
5 year old Mountain has exceeded my high expectations yet again. Today he had his first try at the dressage classes LA1 and LA2. We got completely soaked during warmup but he still put on an amazing performance. 66,2% and 6th place out of 22 against big horses!

9 July:
5 year old Mountain went to his first jumping show today. We jumped two nice small classes, 60 and 70 cm, to ensure a positive experience. Mountain absolutely loved it and jumped double clear!

Greylight has moved to her new home. We wish her the best in the future.

 

17-18 June:
5 year old Mountain had an absolutely fantastic weekend at 2 different dressage shows: 3 classes, 3 wins! All in novice classes against big horses. What an amazing pony!

 

20 May:
5 year old Mountain proved yet again what a nice pony he is! He went to his first outdoor dressage competition and I had moved him up to the highest novice tests. We finished 5th out of 20 horses!  
 

30 April: Today Silver had his CNC100 eventing debute! He was a superstar, and proved that he is perfectly capable at this level. We are loking forward to the rest of the season!
 
 

23 April: 5 year old Mountain went to his second dressage show today. He scored 67% in both his novice tests. He is increadibly easy to take to events even though this was only his second time away from home. He is already fully comftable standing alone in the trailer and waiting. A real Connemara!
 
 

16 April: Finally, eventing season has begun! Silver was a superstar! He jumped a nice double clear and finished on his dressage score in CNC90 against horses. We finished 10th out of 35, just outside the prizes in the most unfortunate way possible: identical score as the last placed rider but she was 3 seconds closer to the optimal time XC. This amazing photo was taken by Jimmy Leen Friis.
 
 

2 April: 5 year old Mountain went to his first dressage show today. It was his first time away from home. Despite of this he was incredibly easy. He scored almost 70% in his novice test and finished 5th out of 14, just outside the rosettes, against big horses! He has a bright future ahead!
 
 

26 March: Finally the winter is over and we are back in action! We started our season by riding as fox at the annual babyhunt. Silver did a great job and is ready for another year of fun! Thank you to mj-foto.dk for the photo.
 
 

26 February: Silver had his 100 cm debut in arena eventing. He was amazing and with a little more experience he will become unstoppable at this level. We jumped several fences which were used at the European Pony Championship 2016!



29 December: We end this year with another of our ponies finding a super new home. The 140 cm jumping mare Cassini will now be competed by an 11 year old girl. We look forward to following them!

 
 


4 November: Silver participated in the Hubertus hunt for the 5th time last sunday. This massive event marks the end of the hunting season and usually has 30.000+ spectators. Cold, wet, and windy weather reduced that number quite a bit this year, but not enough to make the event anything less than spectacular. Silver was amazing and eager to jump anything in his path. I had thought his performance last year was perfect, but somehow he managed to be even better this year! As always Danish 'hunting' includes no actual hunting and we have no hounds, just lots of fun jumping. Thank you to the wonderful spectators, cheering at us all the way and with many bringing their cameras and sharing the photos afterwards!

22 October: The eventing season is over. Silver has done 2 brilliant CNC90 classes at the last two events and is therefore now qualified for CNC100 level! Now we have 6+ months to prepare for the next season. April can't come quickly enough!

 

7 September:
Our beautiful Gazelle has moved to her new home today. She will be continuing her education in dressage. With her amazing movement she should do quite well. Gazelle was our last partbred, we now only have Connemaras

 
 
4 September: Silver continues hunting this autumn. He is just perfect at it! As always Danish hunting includes no actual hunting and we have no hounds.

 
 
27 August: Silver did his second eventing CNC80 class today proving once again that ponies are best. We finished 2nd out of 23 horses and won the stadium jumping too! 10th after dressage, a clear round and 6th after jumping. We then completed the very challenging XC course with only 0,8 time penalties (4th best XC!) moving us up to 2nd place. So unexpected!

 
 
20 August: Our beautiful Princess has moved to her new home. We are keeping two of her daugthers to keep this wonderful line at our stud.

 
 
6 August: We had an amazing weekend at Danish inspection and show with our two stallions both achieving class 1! Atlantis impressed the judges from the moment he entered the ring. His powerful jump earned him the dream grades of 10-10 for jumping! Those were 2 of only 3 10s given at the inspection. In total Atlantis was rewarded with a great inspection and a 9 for overall impression! In the show Atlantis was reserve champion stallion and qualified for the supreme championship ring. To top things off Atlantis' 3 year old son Springers Golden Mint also achieved class 1! Minty has been a remarkable colt since he was born with outstanding movement rarely seen in the breed. Last year he achieved record high scores from two Danish judges at a youngstock show. This weekend he achieved the impossible under two Irish judges by winning the 3 year old colt class and getting class 1. I believe he is the first BEC colt to do this! Photos by Ebba Nørgaard.

 
 
9 July: We had an amazing day eventing! With the recent sale of Stormy I was in need of a new eventing pony and the obvious choice was to try Silver. He is highly experienced at hunting but has had difficulty coping with a competition environment and therefore hasn't done any normal competitions in years. I believed he had improved and it was time for a test run, so we entered a nice small CNC80 class at what was to be Silver's first eventing competition. It turns out that not only has Silver improved, he is a totally brilliant eventing pony! He did a nice dressage test and jumped two clear rounds to finish 3rd out of 15 horses on his dressage score! We were also the disciplin winners in both jumping and XC! Silver will definitely be eventing again soon and next time it will be at a higher level.

 
 
18 June: We had an amazing day with the 140 cm ponies at a regional jumping competition! Both Genie and Cassini jumped double clear rounds in LB1* (75 cm) to finish in the ungrateful positions of 1st and 2nd unplaced! In the next class, LB2* (80 cm), Genie was the first in the class and jumped an amazing double clear with a great time. Cassini jumped a super round but just touched the wall knocking down a brick on the last fence of the main round. Genie placed 2nd in the class and fully enjoyed the lap of honor! I think she could get used to that :D This was Genie's first regional level competition and only her 4th show in total. What a wonderful beginning of her official jumping career!

 
 
10 June: Our incredibly talented eventing pony Springers Silent Storm has been sold. He is currently travelling to his new home in USA where two young girls are waiting for him. It is no secret that Stormy has been my favorite for the almost 2 years I have been riding him. He has been absolutely wonderful and will be greatly missed.

 
 
9 June: Silver at the new annual arena eveting which was open for ponies for the first time. He did great! Photos by MJ-foto.dk.

 
 
5 June: The last hunt of the spring season was amazing as always. Just look at this jump! Silver performed super. 

 
4 June: Cassini did her first regional level competition in 27 C heat. She jumped nicely. At the same competition 140 cm pony Springer Silas was placed 2nd in a 90 cm class and did his 5th clear round at 85-90 cm level. He is now qualified for 95-100 cm just 2 months after qualifying for 85-90 cm! 

 
 
28 May: The 140 cm mares Cassini and Genie went to their 3rd training show today. Both went really well! Cassini jumped her first 80 cm class. She proved just how cool she is by jumping the optional water like it was nothing in both her rounds! The next step is regional level competitions

 
 
21 May: Stormy proved once again what a great pony he is! With 3 solid performances we finished 10th out of 28 against the big horses in CNC90. With today's result we are now qualified for CNC100. At just 6 years old Stormy's story is just beginning!

 
 
8 May: The 140 cm mares Genie and Cassini won their first rosettes at a training show! Both are only just beginning to gain experience with events but behaved very well. To ensure a positive experience for the ponies we kept the classes small. Both were expertly ridden by a 12 year old. Genie jumped two clear rounds in 50 and 60 cm and Cassini jumped a clear round in 60 cm with one pole down in 70 cm. They are now ready for a bigger challenge next time.

 
 
24 April: Wonderful news from Belgium! 3 year old Springers Poetic Diamond won CHAMPION MARE at the Belgian National Show! She was also inspected in class 1 with the highest score of the day!

 
 
23 April: Today we went to the annual youngstock show at Dorthealyst with our yearling filly Springers Calypso. Calypso did great and won her class with a 9 for type and all 8s for the rest! She was the highest scoring Connemara! Calypso finished in the middle of the yearling finals. Calypso is the first foal sired by Springers Legolas, who is now in Germany, and out of Springers Calibra who was inspected in the highest class with a 10 for jumping capacity. Calypso is a perfect example of our aim to combine performance and type. We couldn't be prouder! Photos by Ebba Nørgaard.

 
 
21 April: Our beautiful dunroan yearling Springers Las Vegas has arrived safely at his new home in Sweden today.

 
 
10 April: Finally! The 7 month wait is over, eventing season is back! And what a beginning... Ears forward, eager to go, ready to fly! Stormy was more than happy to put the winter's training into use to jump a clear XC round in a challenging CNC90 class. We got a few time penalties but so did half the big horses. Most importantly, he was absolutely wonderful to ride! It is such a great feeling knowing he enjoys it as much as I do! A video of our XC round can be seen on Stormy's site.  


3 April: It has been 15 years since I rode my first hunt. Today we "celebrated" by riding 'fox' at the annual babyhunt (yes that is the official name! Jump height only 80 cm). Silver performed wonderfully and jumped everything riding in front! As always Danish hunting does not include any actual hunting and we have no hounds. The 'fox' is a rider who rides in front and serves as the Master's helper if anything is needed. Photo by mj-foto.dk.

 
24 March: Stormy has enjoyed his winter break from competitions and has improved his skills at home instead. We are now back in action in preparation for the upcoming eventing season. Today Stormy jumped a clear round over 90 cm.


19 March:
Our beautiful Greylight went to her first dressage show today. The judge noted her incredible movement for which she got an 8 (in the company of warmbloods). We scored up to 65,5% in two novice tests. Greylight is well on her way to become a super dressage pony, she just needs a bit more experience with unknown surroundings.

 
31 January: Cassiopeia went to her first training show today. She walked straight into the trailer, never spooked at anything and jumped two clear rounds over 60 cm!


13 December:
Springers Legolas is now a class 1 stallion! He impressed the judges with his many qualities and his jumping ability in particular. 3 year old Legolas has always shown incredible promise. He was sold to Germany in February. Legolas has sired two of our 2015 foals and is expecting several foals next year in Germany. Legolas is the first foal sired by our stallion Rohan. This is an incredible result for everyone! Photos by Volker Hagemeister.
