Although Matador had undergone two major operations the year before, one due to colic and the other due to complications concerning a hernia, Kyra was so successful in bringing him back to form that they were able to compete in the World Equestrian Games in Stockholm 1990. Moreover, they achieved their best international result so far - an individual silver medal.

The following year the pair went on to win the World Cup final in Paris.
At the end of 1991 Matador was sold to Japan. In 1999 Matador returned to his breeder in Denmark where he enjoyed life as a breeding stallion. He died in 2002.
