Master rider Michael Hoejgaard to Blue Hors
I am pleased to be able to announce Michael as a new addition to the Blue Hors breeding department. Michael has a lot of experience with young stallions through both his education as well as his job working with Danish Warmblood as performance test leader, test-rider and in the auction department, - I am sure that he'll fit our team greatly with both his knowledge and experience
Michael is a 40 years old examined master rider educated by Ulrik Gerstorf Sørensen. He has a long and exciting equestrian-catalogue which we at Blue Hors are we happy to add to our team.
Michael har previously worked at Hesselhoej Hestecenter with Hans Joergen Hoeck, as well as at Skarbaek Rideklub, Vilhelmsborg and Egum Rideklub as leading master rider.
Michael has also been woking in South Korea with his wife Tenna Dyhrberg Hoejgaard, who is also an active rider – and with whom Michael has been running Hoejgaard Dressage with.
Michael’s passion lies within the world of dressage, including both sport and breeding, and the education of everything from young mares, young horse championship prospects, older, educated horses as well as teaching all kinds of students, has therefore always been close to his heart.
Some may recognize Michael as a in hand-presenter at the Danish Warmblood stallion licensing in Herning. In 2007 he was awarded the Hestens Værns ‘In Hand-Presenter’ award. Others may know Michael as a performance test leader or as a test rider or as part of the DWB Auction Department.
No matter from where you’d recognize Michael, he har for sure done lots of exciting things, making him a favorable addition to Blue Hors
