Marcus Ehning’s Plot Blue is to be retired from the sport after a phenomenal career. The retirement ceremony will take place in Geneva next week, in the very same ring where Plot Blue won the World Cup Final with Ehning back in 2010 and where he again will compete for one last time. 

Ehning has many highlights to look back at with the now 18-year-old stallion by Mr Blue x Pilot, that is Swiss owned by Kathrin Somogyi. The couple won team gold at the 2010 World Championships in Kentucky, as well as team bronze at the 2009 European Championships at Windsor.

The two also have big victories together from Lyon, Aachen, Paris, Gothenburg, Mannheim, St. Gallen, Cannes and Magna Racino as well as taking Nations Cup wins for Germany at Hickstead (2011 and 2013) and in Falsterbo (2013). Plot Blue also jumped at the 2012 Oympic Games with Ehning in the saddle.

Before he came to Ehning, Plot Blue competed at the 2006 World Championships and 2007 European Championships with Switzerland’s Werner Muff.
