The decision have been agreed upon in a friendly mutual understanding, and reflects changes in the business concept of both parties.

Ninja La Silla will, as earlier reported, be officially retired during Gothenburg Horse Show. The successful gelding will spend his retirement in the fields in Mexico at the La Silla Stud taking care of the youngsters. The two stallions Casall La Silla and Quintero La Silla, who are owned by the Holsteiner Verband, will remain with Rolf. As for other La Silla-horses ridden by Rolf, Alfonso Romo wants to support the Mexican national jumping team with these.

"We have had a fantastic time with great successes and unforgettable moments over the past nine years," Rolf says in the press release, "and in Breitenburg we are proud to have been part of a successful team like this!"

"For La Silla, the name Rolf-Göran Bengtsson sets a standard of excellence as a human being, as a horseman, as a rider and as a loyal partner. He has been our finest ambassador," Alfonso Romo states in the press release.
