The Amazing Horse “Blue Hors Matine”: Brilliant Freestyle Dressage Dancing

Andreas Helgstrand Riding Blue Hors Matine

At The Grand Prix Freestyle Dressage in Aachen, Germany on August 26th, 2006, Andreas Helgstrand and Blue Hors Matine turned in an electrifying performance to earn the Silver Medal. Andreas Helgstrand of Denmark had a marvelous freestyle dressage, riding the amazingly unbelievable Blue Hors Matine in a performance that got the audience, a huge sold-out crowd of 40,000 people crammed into every corner of the stadium, clapping in rhythm with her passage as she went down the centerline at the end of her performance. This beautiful horse was so exciting and as regular as a metronome in her piaffe and passage, which was flaunted in front of the judges at every opportunity. That’s the strategy with a freestyle; if you do something well, do it in their faces. If there’s something you don’t do well, hide it away in a corner. And Blue Hors Matine did it all well, extraordinarily well, indeed. One can even easily pardon her flapping tail, since it really did seem to express just how happy she was to be dancing!

    I was so deeply touched watching this video – I immediately fell in love with this regal horse – love the position of her head and loved her tail. .and what rythm.

  8. Judy Hannah Says:

    I loved watching this mare dance……….brings tears to my eyes are her amazing performance no matter how many times I watch it………More than beautiful………she is simply amazing……….

  9. Penny Says:

    This brings me to tears of elation every time I watch it, which must be 10 times now. Absolute perfect synchronicity between horse and rider.

  10. Wendy Swartley Says:

    Matine and her dressage rider send a thrill through me every time I watch them together. There is nothing like the communication between a rider and his or her horse to put life into perspective. I hope to see both of them soon in another performance. I was deeply concerned that Matine was hurt while being transported to the Las Vegas horse show. I hope our darling has healed and is out dancing in the ring again soon.

    This pair is amazing to watch. The horse is truly dancing. She got the audience to clap to her passage at the end of her program. Lets hope that this horse takes part in the Bejing Olympics. She is one special horse that enjoys her dance.

  23. Björk Says:

    By the way, the rider’s name is Andreas. The mare is truly amazing. I have seen her train, and that horse makes me proud to be a Dane!

  24. Nancianne Chastain Says:

    What a wonderful pair!Matine is the most beautiful spirited horse to come around in some time. I never tire of watching the Kur. She not only loves what she does but one can easily see she loves Andreas. Hard to tell where the horse stops and the rider begins!! An absolute pleasure!!!

  25. Joyce Says:

    A magical moment in history is the result of this brilliant performance between one entity, Andreas and Matine. No other performance is comparible. Tingles,chills,excitement and a sense of wonder is what I take away from this performance. Andreas and Matine, be proud, be very proud. Bravo and congratulations on making history, stirring raw emotions and inspiring the world with your brilliance..!!!!
