About the Final Inspection 2021 You can read from here:


32 young sporthorses at age 2- 3 years gathered to Vaikla Equestrian centre Estonia at 3- 4 October  to select the Best 2 and 3 years old mares and stallions. If at previous years there has always been a foreign judge to make the selection then this year for obvious reasons estonians had to manage with their own forces. Our own judges – Raigo Kollom, Ivo Ots and Hanno Ellermann proved their competents to evaluate young sporthorses. Raigo has been evaluating young horses at pre selections for more than 20 years already, GP level rider and young breeder Hanno Ellermann was choosen for the job as a person who has more than 10 years of experience working with Team Njihof. Ivo Ots is a talented young horse rider and  breeder of GP level horse Dorado (A Pikachu De Muze, ridden by Max O’REILLY HYLAND.)

Estonian sport horses were the best in two categories, but the success of imported horses makes us equally happy – it is positive if our breeders invest in high-quality imported genetics to promote breeding.

All together ca 200 young horses were inspected before the Finals. Every year is a little bit different by age groups, amount and quality. 2020 will be remembered as a year with very good 3 – years old mares.

About th winners: Best 2-year-old mare was no. 4 KARYA – german riding horse. By KARAJAN, out of LORDANA by LORDANOS, owner Margo Normann. Family Normann´s are a long term breeders, who had bred Final winners before. Also B Captain Normann ridden by Gunnar Klettenberg at 160 cm level is bred by them. KARYA will be for sure a nice brodmare for their stud.

AGAMIX LEGEND Z, zangersheide, by AGANIX DU SEIGNEUR Z, out of  LEGENDE IX by CORIANO, breeders Kristiina Pähn and Janika Pirel Jasmin Hirvi. AGAMIX  is actually born in Estonia as a embryo foal. Dye to the contract the foal was supposed to be registered as Z.  Young breeders of the stallion are actively taking part of the ESHBS events as volunteers, truly interested in esh breeding specially by crossing with holsteiner and Selle France lines. They also own full sister of Agamix who for sure will give quality genes to ESH breeding.
