Langehanenberg won the 2013 FEI Dressage World Cup™ Final title aboard Damon Hill, and in 2016 she secured the ride on Damsey FRH. Currently ranked sixth on the FEI Dressage World Ranking list, the duo has had their eyes set on qualifying for Sweden’s final this year, since Langehanenberg was on maternity leave and unable to compete at the 2018 championship in Paris, France.
Beginning their qualifying season in fall 2018, Langehanenberg and Damsey FRH won the Grand Prix in Herning, Denmark, and placed second in the Grand Prix Freestyle with an 81.40 percent. A few weeks later, they continued racking up qualifying points after their performances in Germany and Belgium. In the final leg of the Western European League in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands, Langehanenberg and Damsey FRH earned a 84.875 percent in the Grand Prix Freestyle.
“To be the owner of a fabulous stallion such as Damsey FRH is such a treat!” Louise Leatherdale said. “To have watched he and Helen grow together to become a true team has been remarkable and I was thrilled to cheer them on in person at the Scandinavium!”
