About Us

Hestengen Dressage is run by Trude Hestengen who are passionate about educating and working with dressage horses
I care about the horses wellbeing, which is also reflected at Tystoftegård, where we have tried to create the best possible conditions for both horse and rider.

Trude Hestengen

I am 35 years old and originally I come from Norway. I have been riding at elite-level since I was riding ponies, and I have participated at five Nordic Championships and two European Championships as a pony, junior and young rider.

I have educated three horses to international Grand Prix level:
- Lope N
- Le Mont-H
- Tobajo Pik Disney

I had Disney, who was my best Grand Prix horse, since he was four years old, and educated him up to Grand Prix level myself. We have participated in the World Championship for Young Horses, Scandinavian Open in Falsterbo and the Danish young horse championships.
In 2014 we made our international breakthrough with bronze in the Nordic Championship, international GP-placings in Falsterbo, participation in WEG in France and World Cup-debut. In 2015 we got a silver medal in the Nordic Championship, placings in 4 and 5 star Grand Prix, participated in the European Championship in Aachen and reached a 58.place on the World Ranking.

I have worked with horses at Blue Hors in Denmark, and in California, USA, where I got good experience in handling stallions and riding young horses.
