Stuteri Arch, owner of the top ranked geldings H&M All In and H&M Christian K and of the mare H&M Cue Channa 42, has been awarded the Owner of the Year trophy for 2017 by the Jumping Owners Club.

Peder Fredricsson (SWE) rode another Stuteri Arch’s horse H&M Christian K to a great second place in the CSIO5* Grand Prix of Lummen (BEL) and a second place in the FEI Nations Cup of La Baule (FRA).
