Thank you AD Camille Z

6Athina-Onassis-de-Miranda-Tragedy struck the showjumping world last Thursday, when Athina Onassis de Miranda's amazing mare AD Camille Z had to be put to sleep after a fall in Geneva. Here is our tribute to this fantastic horse, who was so special and so loved – and who will be deeply missed by us all. Together Athina and AD Camille Z achieved great things, jumping impressive clear rounds in some of the biggest Grand Prix classes on the circuit as well as ending 14th at the European Championships in Herning last year.

Jos Lansink has a busy day when we arrive at his yard in Meeuwen, Belgium a Thursday afternoon. Still in his riding gear after numerous sessions on the horse back, he is now fully occupied with saying good bye to and welcoming clients, trying out possible new horses to add to his stables, helping out his riders as well as building jumps. Lansink – former World Champion, Olympic and European team gold medallist, as well as World Cup Champion – runs a big dealing yard and sports stable. There are over fifty horses in his barn, and three additional international riders next to Jos – nevertheless you cannot detect any stress in the stables. Perhaps it is due to the fact that most of the horses are turned out in the surrounding paddocks and fields unless they are busy being hacked out or flatted. Because as we are soon to discover as we sit talking on a cavaletti in the middle of Lansink's beautiful outdoor ring, Jos is all about the happiness of the horses.
