The mare died unexpectedly and sudden at the show stables at the CSI show in Geesteren, Holland. On Friday Love Affair won the first qualification for the Grand Prix, but Govoni withdrew the horse from the main class on Sunday as he thought she was lame. An autopsy will be performed to ascertain the cause of death.

Love Affair – who was 12 years old – was very successful with Govoni, and won several international classes during their time together.
