Blue Hors Matiné
Blue Hors Matiné has been humanely put down after
a tragic field accident.
Matiné spent a few hours in the paddock with her buddy Blue Hors Cavan
every day, and she was with Cavan when the fatal accident happened.
There was no doubt that Matiné had broken her right front leg at the
knee, and the vet immediately diagnosed that there was no way possible
to save her life.
With her constant rider Andreas Helgstrand, Matiné by Blue Hors Silver
Moon x Matador had an outstanding dressage career. She went from being a
national Danish young horse champion to becoming an international mega
star winning individual silver and bronze at the 2006 WEG in Aachen.
Matiné’s silver medal winning freestyle is to date one of the most
viewed equestrian videos on Youtube with more than 9.3 million hits.
All staff at Blue Hors is very sad about the tragic loss. The news about
the early passing of Blue Hors Matiné will surely travel around the
world at high speed, as she was a unique and charismatic horse with many
fans across the globe.
