"Riding Don Olymbrio is like driving a Ferrari - he just has that extra gear that makes him a lot of fun to ride"

Olympic participants to ride in the CDI3*

As many as two Olympians rode in today’s international classes and there was lots of highlights in both the international classes which were an Intermediate I and a Grand Prix Special. For the audience who had found their way to Blue Hors on Sunday morning or sat behind the screen to follow Zibrasport’s LIVE streaming, there was lots to follow up with.

CDI3* Grand Prix Special

A new team that has been on many people’s mind is the breeding stallion Blue Hors Don Olymbrio, in everyday speech Don O, and Nanna S. Merrald.

Don O is the stable’s charmer, who with a twinkle in his eye and winning personality always attracts attention – and he clearly knows that he is VERY special.

After only a few months in the saddle on this talented stallion, Nanna has found all the right buttons and with today’s international debut and an excellent win with 75.957% this is a new constellation that we will definitely have to keep an eye out for in the future.

  • No. 1 Nanna Skodborg Merrald/Blue Hors Don Olymbrio  – 75,957%
  • No. 2 Matthias Alexander Rath/Destacado FRH – 74.043%
  • No. 3 Charlotte Heering/Bufranco – 71.979%
