Nanna & Farrell in Prix St. Georges win at Horses & Dreams meets Japan

Blue Hors rider Nanna Skodborg Merrald and her three horses, the mare Atterupgaards Orthilia and the two breeding stallions Blue Hors Farrell and Blue Hors Zack, are in Hagen, Germany this week to participate in the Horses & Dreams meets Japan show at Hof Kasselmann.

As the first danish combination, Nanna and Farrell showed off their skills with an impressive win in the first dressage test of the week; a one-starred Prix St. Georges.

Wednesday-party for Nanna & Farrell

Wednesday at 02:08 PM Nanna and breeding stallion Blue Hors Farrell (Fürstenball/ Dacaprio) had their first performance at the Horses & Dreams meets Japan Sports Edition 2021 show at Hof Kasselmann in Hagen

The pair rode confidently and safely through the CDI1* Prix St. Georges with lots of highlights and an impressive score of 74.441%! The pair cemented themselves as the supreme winners with their only competition being second last rider; the olympic rider Patrik Kittel with the Blue Hors Zack-son Bergsjöholms Valbonne. But not even the swedish toprider and his Zack-son could beat Nanna and Farrell, who thouroughly convinced 4 out of 5 judges of the pair's impressiveness. 

In addition to Nanna, Farrell, Zack and Orthilia, we at Blue Hors are also keeping an eye out for the offspring by our breeding stallions, who are also participating in the Hagen-show.

Offspring that have announced their arrival on the list of horses, in addition to Patrik Kittels Bergsjöholms Valbonne by Blue Hors Zack / Epson (breeder: Marita Strauch), includes horses competing in the qualifying class for the Nürnberger Burg cup final. The following Blue Hors-offspring will be competing:

  • Nicole Wego-Engelmeyer on Citation 3 by Zack / Don Gregory
  • Beata Stremler on De Maisi're by Blue Hors Don Romantic / Rohdiamant (breeder: Theodor Wilken)
  • Friederike Tebbel on Don Finito by Blue Hors Don Schufro / Sandro Hit (breeder: Josef Meuwissen)
  • Helen Langehanenberg on Straight Horse Ascenzione by Zack / Don Schufro (breeder: Straight Horse Stud)

In Thursday's four-star Grand Prix, Nanna and Zack will meet both a son by Zack himself, but also a progeny after the stud Ask stallion Carson Ask:

  • Gabriele H. -Kiefer on Cyprus Ophelia by Blue Hors Rosoff / Ragazzo (breeder: Bruno Hindkaer)
  • Astrid Neumayer on Zap Zap by Zack / Leonardo (breeder: Morten Thomsen)
  • Hiroyuki Kitahara on Huracan 10 by Blue Hors Hotline / Don Schufro (breeder: Lars Christensen)
  • Daniel Bachmann Andersen on Carso'ni by Carson Ask / Leendert (breeder: Svend Aage Juhl)


This is an exciting field full of both Danish-bred horses AND offspring by Danish-owned stallions! Great representatives for the breeding of danish dressage horses!
