Sunday, 18 December 2011

Pedro Veniss and Lester Vador. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.Pedro Veniss ‘ ride Lester Vador (Bolero de Brecey x Mummy’s Pet) tragically died yesterday after a bad fall in the Grand Prix class in La Coruna. The twelve year old gelding broke his shoulder in several places in the fall, and there was no other choice than to put him to sleep.

This is the third horse dying in less than two months. In November Hickstead (Hamlet x Eikstein) died in Verona, and only a week ago Cypriano (Cassini x Cantus) passed away at Vilhelmsborg.
