Blue Hors Don Olymbrio
Danish Warmblood Elite Stallion at the early age of nine, Don Olymbrio continues on his rapid development in sport. In 2016, Daniel Bachmann Andersen took over the reins from Allan Grøn and they quickly turned out to be a very suitable match and made their international Grand Prix debut in 2017, and despite the stallion's young age they won several major international competitions in 2018. 2019 saw them progressing by leaps and bounds, with an impressive 11th place on FEI's world ranking in dressage by the end of the competitionyear. In 2019 the pair scored over 80% in the Grand Prix Freestyle at the World Cup competition in Amsterdam and over 82% in the Grand Prix Freestyle in Herning, followed by their success at the World Cup in Hertogenbosch where they achieved over 84%. They also took more than 80% in the Grand Prix Freestyle at the five-star CHIO Aachen, and secured double victory at the World Cup in Herning in October 2019.
"He is always very charming and sometimes a bit cheeky, but he comes through when it really matters", says Daniel. "He is quite spirited but he is an incredibly sweet horse and in the daily training I tend to forget that he is actually a breeding stallion. He brings a natural smoothness and gentleness to the training". Blue Hors rider Agnete Kirk Thinggaard took on Don Olymbrio in late 2019, and she has high expectations for their collaboration. "I am very grateful to be able to ride Don Olymbrio and I feel that we fit well", says Agnete. "He is quite sweet and affectionate, and we work well together so I will pursue my Olympic dreams with him."
Don Olymbrio delivered a stunning CDI3* Grand Prix performance at the 2019 World Cup in Herning with rider Daniel Bachmann Anderson. The duo won the two competitions with 78% and 79.7%. In Wellington of the same year, the duo placed 4th inthe CDI3* GP with 71.783.
Don Olymbrio became an international Grand Prix Freestyle winner in 2018 with over 80%, as well as, produced the Danish Warmblood Filly of the Year who later sold for 80,000 EUR. In 2018, he successfully participated in several major international events under Daniel Bachmann-Andersen with good rankings and several victories. At the 2018 CDI competition in Herning, he started the year well scoring two seconds. He continued this on with top placings in Hagen and Cappeln prior to a second placing in the Grand Prix World Cup competition, followed by a victory in the Grand Prix Special. He also had a double victory at the Blue Hors Dressage Festival when he achieved 80% in the freestyle.
During the show season, Blue Hors Don Olymbrio competes in national shows and has attained achieved multiple victories and placings in Prix St. Georges since age seven. Both his sire Jazz, and grandsire, Ferro, have competed at the highest level-- representing the Netherlands at the World Championships in dressage. Jazz has placed high on the WBFSH dressage stallion rankings for several years-- placing 3rd in 2015. Jazz is probably the most influential Dutch breeding stallion of the past 25 - 30 years and has sired a large number of licensed sons and elite mares. The number of his offspring that have become high level competition sport horses is second to none which makes him particularly valuable to breeders. His grandsire Ferro secured the 8th place on the WBFSH rankings for 2015.
Don Olymbrio's first crop drew much attention at home and abroad as each of his three sons became licensed stallions and were proclaimed as premium stallions. At the Süddeutsche Hengsttage in Munich in 2015, L'Olymp Landlyst (Der Däne), was proclaimed premium stallion and sold at auction to Hof Kasselmann in Germany. At the Danish Warmblood stallion licensing in Herning, both UNO Don Olympic and Blue Hors Dreamline were licensed and both were proclaimed premium stallions.
Don Olymbrio was crowned Elite Stallion by the Danish Warmblood Society in autumn 2016 at the age of 9. He has sired 10 licensed stallions, including Olympus from the Celle State Stud in Germany. He is also the sire of many medal-winning mares. For the past eight years he has sired foals that perform extremely well at foal shows and auctions. Don Olymbrio's daughter Remember Me was named Filly of the Year at the Danish Warmblood Elite Show in 2018, and was sold at the Elite Foal Auction to an international Grand Prix rider for 80,000 euros. Many of his offspring have stood out at young horse championships, and several older offspring are making a name for themselves in sport. UNO Don Olympic represented Denmark at the World Championship in Ermelo and has demonstrated talent for international competition with his rider Anna Zibrandtsen. And daughter Silhuet competes internationally under Cecilie Hedegaard of Denmark.
Dam sire Ferro and his rider Coby van Baalen won silver at the Olympic Games in 2000 and Ferro has founded his own stallion line in the Netherlands, which has given the stallions Rousseau, Metall, Rhodium and Special D. Ferro, like Jazz, has produced many successful dressage horses and his offspring are characterized by a convincing ability to collect.
Don Olymbrio originates from one of the most successful Dutch dam lines, family 145. He is suited for tall, large-framed mares. This is where is does his very best and passes on athleticism, expression and dynamics in movement to his offspring. In terms of bloodlines he matches a wide range of mare out of classic german dressage lines. "His offspring are top-quality, durable horses. Like him, they are cooperative and want to achieve something", says Martin Klavsen.
