Dancing Mare “Blue Hors Matine”

Blue Hors Matine was a dressage mare. Dressage is occasionally referred to as “Horse Ballet”.

She was a true show horse that was trained for and excelled in equestrian competitions and pageants.

At the peak of a dressage horse’s gymnastic development, it can smoothly respond to a skilled rider’s (in this video: Andreas Helgstrand) minimal signals while remaining relaxed and appearing effortless.

In this video Blue Hors Matine appears to glide, stride and dance across and around the arena as though she were dancing to the beat of her own drum and not in a competition in a packed stadium.

Blue Hors Matine passed on after a tragic paddock accident in January, 2010. Her easy competitive spirit will continue to awe and inspire those who love their pets or by anyone who just enjoys a good show.

    This amazing silver beautifully conformed mare will be very sadly missed by those persons involved in dressage.

    She is stunning and could take her place along side any of the Lipizzaner stallions in any of their dance performances. She is truly magnificent and will sorrowfully missed.

  24. Catherine S says:

    This amazing silver beautifully conformed mare is glorious in her dressage performance. She is stunning and could take a rightful place beside any of the Lipizzaner stallions in their dance performances. She is magnificent and will be sorrowfully missed.

  25. Dianne R says:

    BRILLIANT PERFORMANCE is the only to describe this outstanding mare. I sincerely hope she left some offspring to carry on in the tradition of outstanding athleticism and beauty in the dressage arena.

  26. Dianne S says:

  27. Anthonia says:

  28. Carol says:

    I saw the Lippizzaner Stallions perform back when I was young. As the other woman said, This mare could be right in their midst! I’m so sorry to hear of her passing. You could tell she really enjoyed what she was doing. I imagine her in heaven doing the same thing before “The Lord”.

    as they appreciate us people

  33. Violet Molnar says:

    I have seen the Lipizaners performing in Vienna, Austria many years ago. Among them were similarly talented horses. This horse was dancing gracefully and with much talent. What a loss of him passing!!!! Violet

    and Thanks for choosing me

  36. Jo says:

    Absolutely fabulous. What a beauty and you could tell how much she loved it by the set of her head, and the way her tail would move too. So sad she is no longer with us. God has one more special creature with him and they can dance together.
