KFPS Studbook stallion Elias 494 has been chosen as Horse of the Year 2019. Both the audience as well as the professional Jury were of one mind that this top dressage stallion more than deserves this title.
Jewel in the Crown Elias
The 10-year-old KFPS Studbook stallion is the Dutch- Friesian flagship in the international dressage arena. Together with his rider Marc-Peter Spahn Grand Prix stallion Elias – Studbook name Djorn van de Demro Stables – keeps pushing the boundaries and together they are ambassadors for the Friesian dressage horse.
In the past year they excelled abroad where such a stunning Friesian stallion attracts a great deal of attention and on top of that also competes in the highest echelons of dressage! Several times they have won Dutch and European Championships and in between this Jorn 430 son also carries out his stud services. In 2016 Elias was approved via the Short Test. His owner Linda Anell lives in Sweden but she gives Marc-Peter and Elias a free rein to carry out their missionary work. And with success!
