On the first day of the new year, it was announced that Malin Baryard-Johnsson's faithful partner Tornesch would be retired from the top sport. With Malin in the saddle, the now 16-year-old stallion by Lux Z x Libero H competed at the 2011 and 2015 European Championships as well as at the 2011, 2013 and 2014 World Cup Finals. The two have been one of Sweden’s most reliable couple for years, and have several podium finishes together from Nations Cups, World Cups and Grand Prix competitions to look back at.   

On her Instagram account, Malin wrote: "Tornesch, thank you for 8 fantastic years and every magic moment you have given me! After hundreds of rounds, thousands of jumps and uncountable hours of training together we became best friends and partners. I'm forever grateful and you will always have a special place in my heart. Good luck with everything and think of me sometimes."

Here is our photo tribute to Tornesch, to remember some of the moments in his long and fantastic career.
