Rolf-Göran Bengtsson and Helgstrand Dressage have started a new partnership named Bengtsson & Helgstrand GmbH.
The new company will focus on elite jumping horses. The sales stable will be based in Germany, where Rolf-Göran and his wife Evi will run the new company from their current premises in Itzehoe, Germany.
Rolf-Göran Bengtsson is recognised as one of the best show jumpers in the world, having won two Olympic medals (2004, 2008), four European Championship medals, including a gold in 2011 and winner of the Global Championship Tour in 2016. He will be responsible for training and developing the horses in Bengtsson & Helgstrand GmbH.
Helgstrand Dressage was founded in 2008 by 2008 Olympic rider Andreas Helgstrand and is today one of the largest sales stables in the World within elite dressage horses, located in Denmark, USA and Germany.
– We are very excited about the partnership with Rolf-Göran and Evi whom we have known for many years, says Andreas Helgstrand. By combining our experience in building a successful sales stable and Rolf-Göran’s unique talent within show jumping we believe this would be a fantastic opportunity to offer something special for customers, riders and breeders.
– Our aim is to build a show jumping sales stable with the same emphasis on quality, customer focus and (eventually) inventory depth that Helgstrand has created within the dressage world, says Rolf-Göran. In that regard Helgstrand Dressage is the ideal partner for us.
