Daniel Bachmann Andersen has decided to resign from his position as the number one rider at Blue Hors Stud in Randbol, Denmark. He will finish his contract that runs until 30 June 2020.
The 30-year old Dane, who is short listed for the Danish team for the Tokyo 2021, is potentially giving up his dream to ride his first Olympic Games in order to begin his independent business.
From Germany to Denmark
Bachmann Andersen began his career as a professional dressage rider as a 16-year old, working at Rudolf Zeilinger's yard in Esmburen, Germany. He first competed internationally in 2009 and returned to the arena in 2011 aboard Silvia Rizzo's Donna Silver.
Bachmann then moved back to Denmark to work for Andreas Helgstrand before getting head hunted by Blue Hors stud in 2014.
