Dourkhan Hero Z
The young Dourkhan Hero Z is considered to be one of the best young horses in the world and he has an impressive appearance! When he was three years old he was purchased during the Stallion Inspection in Lanaken where he stood out with his fantastic technique and super use of the body. Dourkhan Hero Z is a son of Don’t Touch Tiji Hero out of a mare from the famous Roosakker line.
Christian is impressed by Dourkhan Hero Z: ‘He is a dream to ride. He has absolutely everything to become a top-class horse. He has so much blood and energy… perhaps even a bit too much for now. But that is exactly what’s needed to be able to keep going in top sports later on.’
The best way to illustrate ‘Blood’ is by taking a look at Dourkhan Hero Z. ‘He is an unbelievably beautiful horse with loads of blood, top technique and on top of that also a great deal of capacity. He is a stallion that could feature in every category of this article because he scores exceptionally well across the board. He definitely ticks every box. He scores a 10 on blood but also a 10 on size. For the rest he scores 9s on every aspect and that makes him pretty unique. He's only seven years old but what he has demonstrated and given so far is truly phenomenal! Christian too waxes lyrical about Dourkhan Hero Z, he adores riding him. In the long term his blood and energy will work in his favour at the major, multiple-day events. His first offspring have turned two and they have size and a good front. They jump with a fantastic shoulder technique. I consider Dourkhan Hero Z to be a very complete horse. I would however, advise to make sure the mare herself doesn’t have too much blood because the stallion brings in a lot of blood too!’
