Farewell to Blue Hors Matine


Farewell to Blue Hors Matine


Blue Hors Matine, the wonderful Warmblood mare best known for the widely circulated YouTube video featuring a musical freestyle dressage competition, has died.


According to a report in Horse and Hound, the beloved 13-year-old mare broke her right front leg in a paddock accident and had to be euthanized.

Foaled in 1997, Blue Hors Matine was sired by Silvermoon, a 1991 Trakehner stallion – out of 1983 Danish Warmblood Matadie.


Blue Hors Matine was retired permanently last year and kept for breeding by Blue Hors Stud, of Randbol, Denmark.

Here’s the popular video, showing Blue Hors Matinee and Danish equestrian Andreas Helgstrand at the 2006 World Equestrian Games in Aachen, Germany.
