This is who we are
JR Sporthorses is a professional show jumping stable in Europe. Today we are located in Denmark, where we have our roots with together more than 40 years in the business. In modern facilities we train a selection of exceptionary good horses for show jumping, equitation and hunter disciplines.
Horses that we’ve chosen at various stages in their training and career, but all horses that have something out of the ordinary.
The horses are trained and showed by our team – educated riders and riders with lots of experience.
In the north of Denmark we have the educated horse rider and trainer Christian Petersen located at a nice horse facility. Here he and his assistances take care of a handpick selection of horses, mostly in the age of 5-8. The assistants are typically riders with experience from similar jobs.
Christian has great experience both in national and international competition, and with both young- and older horses.
Also he was a team rider for Denmark a few years ago. In the past he has been employed in other barns with breedings, training and showing. Here he had the main responsibility for both training and showing.
A very passionate horseman. Specially when it comes to the basic horse training.
Further down, in the middle of the country, we find the barn where our salesmanager Kristian Skovrider and his assistants are located.
Kristian is also an educated horse rider instructor, and have himself trained many other great riders for the exam with succes.
In the barn by Kristian we have 2-3 younger riders as assistants. They both show horses aswell.
Kristian compete on a higher level both national and international, and has more than ones been a rider on the National Equestrian Team.
For many years, he has through his own company Skovrider International ApS, trained and traded horses for the American market in particular, and has extensive experience with horses for both Show Jumping, Equitation and Hunter disciplin.
Clients from all around the world are at JR Sporthorses presented to a range of competitive horses for skilled riders at all levels.
Many horses have been shipped from our barn in Denmark, to continue their careers in other countries.
We are aiming to do long lasting business with our clients, to find a perfect match between riders and horses, and the goal is for them to have success in the showjumping competitions, Equitations classes and Hunter disciplines.
Often we are contacted by agents and trainers with specific demands and wishes for the horses they are looking for, and with our knowledge, experience and network in the equstrian sport, we almost always succeed in presenting the correct selection of sale horses.
We welcome you to our barn and will look forward to show you great horses.
