Australian FEI rider Alicia Ryan has been hired as the principal rider at the Australian branch of Helgstrand Dressage, called "Helgstrand at Turnberry."
Australian entrepreneur Bruce Dixon purchased Mary Hanna's Statene Park in Macedon on the Bellarine Penninsular near Melbourne, Australia, and has revamped the property into "Turnberry equestrian centre".
In the summer of 2021 Dixon joined hands with Helgstrand to become the Australian leg of the global horse sales company and stallion station.
Ryan's pivotal horse in her riding career, so far, has been Bluefields Furstentanz, a now 14-year old Oldenburg gelding by Furstentraum x Salieri xx, which Alicia has been riding since the horse was five. They did their first and only CDI competition in 2017 at Young Riders' level at Boneo, where they were fourth and second with 63%.
