Who are we?

Bakken Dressage is run by Silje Bakken and Michael Møller Flintrup. Both of them are examined master riders with many years of experience with quality horses. 

Bakken Dressage resides at the family farm Lunding Nørregård. The farm is located 5 km east of Haderslev in scenic surroundings with lots of space and atmosphere.

The farm was originally bought by Michael’s great grandfather. Now it is the fourth generation of the Møller family, who runs the farm.

The beautiful property has throughout the years been converted from a smaller farm with dairy cattle to a highly distinguished sales and training stable for quality dressage horses.
