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.

The following values are fundamental at Bakken Dressage:

Respect for the horse
Bakken Dressage offer facilities that make your horse feel at home. We cooperate with the most skilled blacksmith and the best vets

Orderliness
At Bakken Dressage we hide nothing, meet the eyes of the costumer when telling how the status of the horse is. We believe that the perfect match is made through mutual trust

Trust
At Bakken Dressage both clients and suppliers feel safe and confident

Credibility
At Bakken Dressage we keep our word and share our evaluation with you.

Partnership
To create the best results we have partners in both Denmark, Norway, Sweden, England and Germany.

High ambitions
At Bakken Dressage we want to be challenged by the demands of the costumers. We want to combine sales and competition horses to develop the business further.

Passion and respect
Is united in combination of trust, horsemanship and professional training. We prioritize to develop horses and riders at every level with great passion and respect for both horse and rider.

It is not every horse, that suits every rider and not all costumers are looking for the same type of horse. It is therefore evident to have different riders in our stable. This ensures that our customers will have the best possible capabilities, knowledge and competent feedback available to develop their horses and its performance.
