Melpomena arrived to our place in the summer of 2015, along with her daughter Pomera (by Pobeditel/Balaton).
The previous year, her first-born daughter Balmena (by Balaton/Menes) was already a part of our stud, and it was the previous owner's wish, that these three mares had to remain together.

Melpomena is born at Tersk Stud and raised in Russia. She was sold at the Tersk Sale in 2001 and imported to Denmark by Stutteri Elbjerg.

In Melpomena's interesting pedigree you will find a lot of wellknown names, like her sire Piligrim (Gips x Postrup/Suvenir) who won several Champion titles, and also was racing at the racetrack through three seasons.
Piligrim's sire Elite and ECHAO ** stallion Gips, who also was at the racetrack for two seasons, was awarded with several Champion titles and just to name a few:

All Nations Cup Champion Aachen 1991, Res.European Champion Menton 1993, Class Winner European Championship in 1996, and many more titles.
Melpomena's dam Mirnaja is sired by Naslednik (Nil x Nitochka/Naseem) which was also at the racetrack and was awarded the All USSR Champion title in 1978.

Mirnaja's dam Margaritka (Aswan x Monopolia/Priboj) was a treasured broodmare at Tersk Stud and also she had a racingcareer, before she was put into breeding.

Melpomena is a unique mare with a strong russian pedigree, and it is a great pleasure that she today  has become a part of our horse team. In addition to her pedigree, she is a fantastic and lovely mare who possess many qualities. She has the cutest mind and is extremely easy in everyday life and always happy and positive.
Her movements are a real russian worthy and despite she is an older lady,  she still understands how to move and show-off with attitude and grace.

Melpomena is shown at the Danish International Show 2007 with Gold medalj and 87.00 points, and Danish National Show 2007 with Gold medalj and 37.33 points. Melpomena is also broken in.

From Tersk to Terndrup we welcome Melpomena ,and hope she will bring us a couple of offspring before she will retire.
