May-Day and Danciera

With May-Day Graftebjerg Carina Cassøe Krüth got her first international experience at Grand Prix level, and May-Day was the horse with which Carina became known in the dressage top. But for many years Carina has had a gem in her stable, Heiline´s Danciera also called Dance, who made her Grand Prix debut at the age of just 8.

Danciera and Carina Cassøe Krüth have been successful all the way together from the young horse years, from Young Horse World Championships and now with top quality in international Grand Prix. Of course, it takes training and careful education of the horse to get there, but Carina and Danciera have got the help they needed and they are now training with Andreas Helgstrand.

CK Dressage

Carina Cassøe Krüth is married to Casper Cassøe, and they live just outside Hobro – for a while yet. Casper and Carina had the opportunity to build something new from scratch – and they have now bought their dream property on Djursland. They are working hard to get it ready for both horses and people. The two help each other and share their common interest – horses and equestrian sports.

The property will provide fantastic facilities for riders and horses in spring, autumn, winter, and, not least, summer.
