In Denmark, we are favoured by having many knowledgeable, financially strong and foresighted stallion owners who bring the best bloodlines and stallions to Denmark. That is why the Danish Warmblood stallion licensing in Herning has developed into a European final for the best young stallions from the foreign studbooks in combination with the Danish-bred young stallions. And it provides the Danish breeders a unique opportunity to improve and develop their breeding, said breeding consultant Karina Christiansen. in her presentation of the young stallions.

Young DWB stallions Zonik, Sezuan and Hesselhøj Donkey Boy had altogether sired five of the nine medallists at world young horse championships in Ermelo last year, and they seem to act as a sign of the times: The growing influence of Danish Warmblood. At the licensing in Herning a son of Sezuan, So Perfect was approved for testing. The World Champion Revolution presented his first crop for selection. From a total of 7 preselected stallions, a total of five sons were approved for testing. A total of 21 3-year old stallions were approved for testing and 7 of them were celebrated as premium stallions. 

The Danish Breed elite stallion Sezuan by Blue Hors Zack breeder Linette Jæger, was honoured with the title: Stallion of the Year.
