2012 Show Report & Results


Trakehner UK  annual Grading and Show, was held at The College Equestrian Centre at Keysoe on 1st & 2nd September 2012. It was a successful and relaxed weekend and the weather was kind.

Despite entries being down on previous years, the judges, including two from the UK two from The German Verband and one from Danish Trakehners, were delighted at the high quality of horses entered. Of eight mares presented for grading four were awarded premium marks, with the Mare Grading Champion Ulana by Chabrol achieving an impressive 57 points. She also went on to be Reserve Champion of the Mare Performance Test and Mare Champion on the showing day.

Brood Mares young stock and riding horses in the showing classes, were also of high quality, and the Breed Society policy of a strictly monitored closed stud book is clearly paying dividends.
The winner of the TBF Senior Bursary of £500 training fees was Joanna Jones with her horse Holme Grove Devinci by Holme Park Krug. This partnership won the Free jumping Championship, Riding Horse Championship, 2nd Reserve Supreme Champion and Reserve Best British Bred Champion.
Reserve Supreme Champion and Best British Bred of the weekend was the Champion foal, Woodcroft Noah by Garuda K.

Performance Awards

Each year, Trakehners UK recognizes Trakehners in the competition world. Searching through performance records of Dressage, Showjumping and Eventing, we seek out those horses who are actively competing and select those with the highest winnings for Performance Awards.

Searching through British Dressage, British Show Jumping and British Eventing databases, looking for those horses known to be of Trakehner breeding, we try to recognize those horses making a name for themselves.

If you would like to have your horses considered in future years, please complete the nomination form which can be found in the documents section.

It is truly a pleasure to see this breed compete and we look forward to making awards in the future.
