Nintendo, the 10-year-old KWPN gelding competed at Grand Prix by Thomas Sigtenbjerggaard, has been bought by Charlotte Jorst as a prospect for her to ride on the United States team for the World Equestrian Games in Normandy, France next year.

Charlotte of Reno, Nevada announced the acquisition of Nintendo (Negro x Monaco) owned by Hanni T.Kasprzak through Helgstrand Dessage.

The Dutch-bred Nintendo began his CDI Grand Prix career in May this year with top five placings in all six starts, ridden by Thomas Sigtenbjerggaard, the master rider for Helgstrand.

“I am so happy to bring Nintendo to the U.S.A.,” Charlotte said. “He is a talented guy and I am looking forward to getting to know him better over the winter. When I tried him out at Andreas Helgstrand’s stable, we just clicked. Nintendo is so beautiful and so much fun to ride.”

Charlotte, a Danish native, competed her six-year-old Westfalen stallion Vitalis at the World Young Horse Championships placing 13th then capturing the U.S. Young Horse national title. She also was reserve champion on the eight-year-old KWPN gelding Adventure in the U.S. Developing Horse Prix St. Georges championship.

With Tristan, a KWPN gelding, she was Adult Amateur Grand Prix champion in the regional championships.
