After seven years on the job, Allan Grøn has decided to resign as an assistant rider at Blue Hors stud in Randbol, Denmark. 

Grøn will join his life partner Astrid Therkeldsen Grøn as an independent trainer at Davinde Riding Club near Odense, Denmark.

The 36-year old Allan will resign from his position officially on 30 November 2018.

"This however does not mean that the co-operation with Blue Hors stop," said Blue Hors sport director Ulrik Gerstorf Sørensen. "Allan will still be relied on as an external rider and continue to help Blue Hors in the training of some of the stars of tomorrow."

Blue Hors has been instrumental in launching Grøn's career as a professional dressage rider. He first competed internationally at the 2013 World Young Horse Horse Championships on Zick Flower. He returned to Verden with the horse in 2014. With Blue Hors Zatchmo he competed at international small tour in 2017. Blue Hors purchased Wasabi OLD from Victoria Michalke as a Grand Prix schoolmaster for Allan. The pair competed at the CDI's in Herning, Hagen, Uggerhalne, Falsterbo, and Waregem in 2017.  Allan did not compete at any international shows in 2018.
