Blue Hors Dressage Festival

The Blue Hors Dressage Festival will be offering the best Danish dressage has to offer and welcomes athletes to its CDI 3* on 7 - 10 November 2019. The event will be an excellent opportunity for riders to achieve their 2020 Olympic MER scores with three 5* judges officiating.

The Blue Hors Dressage Festival is one of the most high-profile dressage shows in Denmark and entries are now open to riders who want to compete in the CDI 3* big and small tour classes in outstanding conditions. 

Setting the Bar for Top Level Competition

The Blue Hors Dressage Festival saw the light in November 2013 and has been an unconditional success ever since. In a period of only three years the show has established itself on the Danish dressage scene as one of the most prestigious and attractive shows with an international atmosphere.

"The show has gained immense popularity among the competing riders for two essential reasons: first class stabling facilities in permanent stalls and an excellent, heated arenas with fibre footing both of which ensures the best possible conditions for their horses," said Blue Hors sport director Ulrik Sorensen. "The spectators enjoy watching top sport while being comfortably seated in a heated and very beautiful show arena with immaculate light and sound system."

Unique Competition Conditions
