Seven stallions were selected for the premium ring during the Danish Warmblood Stallion Show in Herning – of which two wore the Blue Hors stamp. Breeding manager, Martin Klavsen believes they are offer the whole package in terms of being naturally equipped, so has high expectations for Fortron, Monte Carlo, and Dalian – three exceptional stallions.

Blue Hors Fortron (For Romance II x Desperados x Wolken Hit), presented himself exquisitely and received high praise for his appearance. He will represent the new blood in the Blue Hors stable for which Danish breeders have been asking. According to Klavsen, "He is a stallion that fits really well with the blood we already have, and he can advantageously be used for mares by Zack, Don Olymbrio, and all the Dutch blood, for which we have long been looking for a good match." Fortron will be stationed with a Blue Hors partner in Germany, but semen will be available in Denmark on the same day it's collected.

Klavsen believes he had great luck in purchasing the powerful stallion Blue Hors Monte Carlo at the KWPN stallion licensing 2020. Possessing three high-quality gaits, his strong engine with powerful hind-leg mechanism puts him in a league of his own as a stallion for high-level sport. His excellent bloodline – Dream Boy x United x Jazz – displays strong performance that leaves nothing to chance. He was bred in the Netherlands by W. Den Besten and is out of a super damline that has produced Grand Prix horses such as Murdock and Balzflug, Annette Ballerina and Scandic, Bolero and Johnson, alongside licensed stallions such as Joop TC (Ravel) and Son De Niro (De Niro).

Finally, Blue Hors Dalian represents a classic combination of German dressage blood, so his pedigree is excellent for a wide range of mares. Dalian's sire, Dancier was one of the most influential De Niro sons in breeding who fathered nearly 40 licensed stallions and over 100 state premium mares. Klavsen said, "He's the Dancier son we have been looking for, he is not only incredibly light-footed with lots of impulsion and carriage, he's also a very uncomplicated horse and a pleasure to work with."
