Special achievements: Breeder of several Gold Medal mares and successful international sportshorses
Søbakkehus was founded by Agnete Holmsted, a keen dressagerider, in 1995. Since then Agnete has celebrated numerous successes as a breeder with several Gold, Silver and Performance Test medals to show for it. Remarkable, when knowing that Søbakkehus breeds 8 mares a year!
The key to Agnetes success must be that her principles are so simple – but so exclusive: Only breed the absolute best mares, only use the top sires, ensure that the mares and their foals have the best care, the best diets and that they thrive in optimal surroundings with ample fresh air and light.
On the list of mares in Danish Warmblood Breeding Associations 2011 Søbakkehus had the mare with highest dressage BV (2011); the Silver Medal mare Søbakkehus Mia-Bella out of Lindelygaards Mai-Tai (also owned by Søbakkehus) who ranks 5th in the same list.
So, even if the Søbakkehus horses are few in numbers, we consider them to be amongst the most interesting from a bloodline and top sports performance point of view.
