Helgstrand Dressage Selected as Venue for Horsepower Gala presented by Robb Report

Helgstrand Dressage, one of Wellington's largest equestrian estates, will serve as the venue for the third Annual Horsepower Gala presented by the Robb Report on Thursday, March 31. Helgstrand Dressage, one of Europe's most prestigious and influential sport horse performance and breeding centers, is the namesake of International Grand Prix Dressage rider Andreas Helgstrand, who also serves as CEO of the Global Equestrian Group (GEG), which acquired the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center in 2021.

"We are honored to host the Horsepower Gala for the benefit of the EQUUS Foundation. Not only will the evening benefit a very worthy cause but in partnership with Robb Report, promises to be the type of top class event that we at the Global Equestrian Group intend to continue to bring to Wellington," said Andreas Helgstrand.
