- I'm insanely proud and happy. I have not as much experience as those who usually win, " says the winner to the horse Signe Kongebro.

Both she and the winner of the ponyfeltet, Caroline Nielsen, taking over the now hubertuskæden - a chain, which can hang on the neck, and which is made of small plates, where the individual vinderes names are engraved. The prize is awarded every year by last year's winner.
