Quinn G, the winner of the gold medal in the 5-year old division at the 2023 World Young Horse Championships, has been sold to Great Britain. She will continue her sport career in Fiona Bigwood’s barn.
Quinn G is a Danish warmblood mare by Quaterhit out of Fyrstin Laura (by Fassbinder x Lauries Crusador xx. She is bred by Helene Geervliet at Stutteri G in Denmark
Champion for Denmark
Quinn G was first competed in Denmark by Anders Sjobeck Hoeck, who won bronze with her in the 4-year old finals of the Danish Young Horse Championships in October 2022.
Shortly afterwards Quinn G sold to Danish youth team trainer Dennis Fisker (in partnership with the Obel family as an investment project), and they quickly resold her to Andreas Helgstrand.
Under Betina Jaeger the mare won the 2023 Danish Warmblood Young Horse Championships for 5-year olds in March in Herning and then went to the 2023 World Young Horse Championships in Ermelo, where she won gold and the title.
Sold to Great Britain
Quinn G has now moved to Great Britain where she will be produced by Fiona Bigwood and her daughter, British junior team member Mette Dahl.
Mette was member of the bronze medal winning British team at the 2023 European Junior Riders Championships in Kronberg aboard Caporal de Massa, which they also bought at Helgstrand Dressage.
Due to my mum's accident, Quinn is staying over in Denmark for now, as I am having to ride all the horses at our yard," Mette told Eurodressage. "It is still undecided who is going to ride her when she comes back. We have to wait to see how my mum’s leg heals."
Dahl is thrilled to have added the talented mare to her string. "She is an incredible mare with the most amazing attitude and we are excited about her future," said Mette.
