Ninja La Silla has competed at several championships with Rolf-Göran Bengtsson, and his career has been filled with amazing results - he was European Champion in Madrid in 2011, individual silver medalist at the Olympics in Hong Kong in 2008, he was 6th at the World Equestrian Games in Kentucky in 2010 and ended 7th at the European Championship in Windsor in 2009.

"It has been an honor for me to ride such a fantastic horse as Ninja La Silla and I'm very thankful to Alfonso Romo for giving me the opportunity to ride him. To be part of the journey that Ninja La Silla and I have had together with such great results in the championships is something that every rider wishes for. Ninja La Silla has a fantastic personality and is not just a horse, he is a friend and he really deserves to be thanked off on home soil in front of the Swedish crowds at Gothenburg Horse Show," Rolf says on Stall Bengtsson & Kristoffersen's website.

Ninja La Silla will spend his retirement in the fields at Stud La Silla in Mexico, where he will be looking after and taking care of the youngsters.
