Spanish top rider Severo Jurado Lopez was with Helgstrand Dressage in Denmark for seven years. Now he will build his own stable, but will stay in Denmark. “The last seven years have been a great adventure for us, but everything comes to an end. Many of our riders eventually start for themselves, if they have the experience and reputation they need. It’s a pity that we have to say goodbye to such a talented rider, but we are grateful for the many wonderful years with him,” says Andreas Helgstrand.
“I felt that the time was there to start a new chapter, after I had gained so much experience at Helgstrand and was able to build a large network. I am very grateful for the trust Andreas has given me and the many opportunities I have had. The many international competitions with Lorenzo were a great experience, of which the Olympics was certainly a highlight of my life. In addition to the three gold medals with Fiontini and the two gold medals with D’Avie at the World Championships for young dressage horses, of course,” says Severo Jurado Lopez. With Fiontini, he was in the race for a team place for this year’s Olympics.
“I will miss the team enormously and of course the fantastic horses I rode. D’Avie and Fiontini have an extra special place in my heart. I’m very happy that Andreas is going to ride them”, he adds.
The Spaniard doesn’t disappear completely from Helgstrand. Andreas and he have entered into a cooperation concerning the training of a number of horses.
