Danish Champion Mares 2010


Out of the 41 mares decorated with breeder medals 23 mares were awarded a bronze medal, 14 achieved a silver medal whilst four mares were selected for the champion ring and awarded gold medals. The two jumping mares in the champion ring both received 2 x 9 for jumping. They are:

Lajgaardens Chicota
Lajgaardens Chicota
Lajgårdens Chicota by Chico’s Boy x Alcatraz. Breeder: Karina Josefsen, 6731 Tjæreborg. Owner: Stutteri Aagaarden by Hanne Aagaard, 7100 Vejle.

Birkegårdens Choise by Carson Ask x Calato Z. Breeder and owner: Heidi Rasmussen, 9440 Aabybro.

The beautiful Lajgaardens Chicota was awarded the title champion jumping mare 2010. She is a very feminine, expressive and well-built mare in large frames. Her canter is always well-balanced and shows a lot of self-carriage. Over the fences Chicota displays great overview and a lot of capacity, the judges commented.
The two dressage mares in the champion ring both showed exceptional functionality under their riders. Sirikit was presented by John Hvalsøe Saul while Holballes Deeba was ridden by Michael Grønne Christensen. These two gold medal mares are:

Sirikit by Blue Hors Hotline x Blue Hors Don Schufro. Breeder and owner: Peter Christensen, 4900 Nakskov.

Holballes Deeba by De Noir x Resident. Breeder and owner: Bianca og Carsten Jefsen, 6470 Sydals.

Sirikit was proclaimed champion dressage mare 2010 and was described by breeding counselor Karina Christiansen on behalf of the judges as a wonderful mare in a class of her own. She is noble, long-legged and very elegant. She moves with extreme suppleness in all three gaits which are big and roomy with much rhythm, swing and carriage. Sirikit meets the highest international standars, and the judges expressed their excitement about this mare as a future sport horse.
