The Danish Warmblood Stallion Show opens on Wednesday, 6 March, in MCH Exhibition Center Herning. The event contains the stallion licensing of 3-year-old, 4-year and older stallions combined with international 5* dressage and 3* jumping with a young horse championship final for 5-year-old horses in dressage and showjumping, two spectacular Gala Shows Friday and Saturday evening, all of which is combined with a fair with more than 250 vendors.

More than 60.000 spectators are awaited in Herning during the Stallion Show and three spectacular arenas: Jyske Bank Boxen, KRAFFT Arena M and Dansk Hesteforsikring Arena E will set the stage for exiting and emotional sport and breeding with more than 900 horses present in the impressive stables on the showground. 


This year’s collection is eagerly awaited

As always, this year's collection from the Danish breeders is eagerly awaited. Foreign registered and selected stallions supplement the Danish-bred young stallions. 

All stallions must be shown by hand on hard surface before the breeding committee on Thursday in Dansk Hesteforsikring Arena E. On Friday the 3-year-old dressage- and jumping-stallions will be lounged in Krafft Arena M. 3-year-old jumping stallions will be judged in free jumping on Saturday and Sunday in Krafft Arena M. The dressage stallions will be shown loose on Sunday morning inside Jyske Bank Boxen before sorting and awarding.


Stallion of the Year

The celebration of the “Stallion of the Year” will be the festive conclusion of the stallion licensing on Sunday. Each year The Danish Warmblood Breeding Commission nominates the "Stallion of the Year". Since 1998 the title has been given to a breeding stallion who has had extraordinary good results as a breed sire or through own sport results in the past year.
