Through this collaboration, she has had a couple of Blue Hors horses, including the Blue Hors Zack son Zazou Pilekær, in training with a sale in mind.

Blue Hors CARE products in Norway
At the same time as she mediates contact between Norwegian customers and Blue Hors’ sales horses, Anniken is also a Norwegian distributor of the Blue Hors CARE products.
We asked Anniken what products were her favorites, a question she grinningly answered was impossible to answer because she had so many favorites.
“On a daily basis, Super Shine and After Work Shampoo are absolutely fantastic! Easy, convenient and effective!”
In competition situations, Hoof Shine is totally indispensable. It is a product that makes the hooves incredibly beautiful in a simple way! I live for the consistent functionality that is thought into the products! It works and it’s easy, especially when you have several horses with you and everything has to go fast!
I really appreciate having the products in the stable – and the fact that everyone has been thought, e.g. in a product like B-Express Zero, which is sugar-free and therefore suitable for some of the horses that may be overlooked from time to time “
