Blue Hors Zackerey, the German based licensed breeding stallion owned by Blue Hors stud, has returned home in Denmark. He will pick up his sport career under Nanna Skodborg Merrald.

Zackerey is a 9-year old Danish warmblood stallion by Blue Hors Zack out of Overgaard's Hit Me (by Sandro Hit x Solos Carex). He is bred by Tove and Ove Møller Nørgaard.


He was a premium stallion at the Danish Warmblood Licensing and also approved for Oldenburg and Swedish warmblood. In 2018 he won the Main Premium title at the Oldenburg Licensing for his excellent first crop of foals and performance test results. 

He was initially trained by Daniel Bachmann Andersen and they became the reserve champion as a 4-year old at the 2019 Danish Young Horse Championships.

When Bachmann left Blue Hors stud in 2020, the ride surprisingly went to the off-base rider; Spaniard Severo Jurado Lopez.

In 2021 Zackerey moved to Germany to stand at Martin Determann's station. The ride on the stallion was given to Lukas Fischer, who competed the horse once in December 2021 at M-level.

For the 2022 breeding season, Zackerey moved to the Dressage Performance center (DLZ) in Lodbergen and was not competed at all


Today, Blue Hors stud announced that Zackerey has come home. 

"he will now be ridden by Nanna Merrald, who is already very excited about her new partner; the well-behaved and loving breeding stallion," Blue Hors stated. "Zackerey is one of the stallions we will show at our stallion show in Vechta on February 11 – and we look forward to showing him to all of you!"
