A dream came through for the Family Sørensen, when Doris and Finn in 1980 bought the first Arabian foal for the daughter Marianne, who at that time were 11 years old. The foal was Basta ox 319 and he was only 1 week old, when he was bought. Basta will always be in  Mariannes heart & he will always be her best friend.

It's a big joy for us, that most of our breeding program is horses, that we by our self has breed. Only 3 broodmares a bought from other studs. One in 1987 - 1995 and one in 2004 a straight egyptian mare. Among others we can mention our 2 stallions Wisdom El Masran & Wish Me Luck. They are out of our own breeding and they by them selves and also there offspring have achived big succes.

We bought a very nice young colt in 2006 Al Mahab, he is straight Egyptian, he will start his breeding program in 2008, he will cover our straight Egypt mare Sherifa, Al Mahab is by the WORLD CHAMPION stallion Al Lahab.

Our young beautiful colt WML Wahed will also be in our breeding program from 2008.

A lot of the horses bred at Kastanielund are used in the riding sport and with big succes. This is ofcause also a big joy for us. The horses are used in dressage, jump, western and indurance riding.
Marianne & Torben has 2 kids Melissa from 1997 & Finn from 2003, Melissa is very good to handel the horses, and love special the foals.
In 1995 Marianne's dad Finn Sørensen passed away after short but difficult sickness. After this the Stud was runed by Marianne and her mother Doris.
In 2001 Marianne and her husband Torben took over. They bought the stud and they want to run the stud in the spirit of Marianne's father.

July 2008 Mariannes mother Doris sold the farm to Marianne & Torben, Doris will still be Living at the farm.
