Swedish 2012 Olympic team rider Minna Telde has sold her number one Grand Prix horse Isac to German young Grand Prix rider Marie Sophie Ehlen.

Isac is a 14-year old Swedish warmblood by Hip Hop out of Abigail (by Master). He is bred by  Per-Christer Bengtsson and was owned by Ekeslund Holding AB.

Minna trained Isac from young horse level to international Grand Prix. Although he was started by Magdalena Söderlund, Telde soon took over. 

The pair won the Swedish Young Horse Championships three consecutive years between 2010 and 2012.  They represented Sweden at the 2010 World Young Horse Championships in Verden, where they were 9th in the Finals for 5-year olds.

In 2012 the pair also made its international show debut at small tour level at the CDIO Rotterdam. They won the Intermediaire I with 71.289%. Isac disappeared from the scene the next four years. They resurfaced at Grand Prix level at the CDI Mannheim in May 2016. 

In the past four years at Grand Prix level, Isac won at CDI's in Hammaro (2017), Flyinge (2018), Sopot, Doha, Kristiansand and Flyinge (2019). The pair rode its last show at the CDI-W Herning in October.

Isac has now been sold as a Grand Prix schoolmaster for 26-year old German young Grand Prix Marie Sophie Ehlen. 

"What a journey we had together and this year has been fantastic," said Telde about the sale of her horse. "It has been so much fun to finish at the top. I've shed a lot of theses these weeks. It feels so empty to enter the stable and Isac's big white muzzle is no longer sticking out, but I am incredibly happy that he is allowed to continue his journey with his new lovely rider."

Marie Sophie Ehlen began her international dressage career as a young rider in 2012 on Perignon T. In 2013 she added Don Santos and Lady Lissy to her string. In 2016 she moved to Under 25 Grand Prix level. Ehlen rode her last international in April 2018 at the CDI Mannheim.
