Thank you Flora de Mariposa!

Thank you

At the end of July, Haras de Clarbec announced that their incredible mare Flora de Mariposa (For Pleasure x Power Light) had passed away at the age of 15. With Penelope Leprevost in the saddle, Flora de Mariposa jumped to team gold for France at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio as well as to team silver at the 2014 World Equestrian Games in Caen. Flora’s owners Dominique and Geneviève Mégret of Haras de Clarbec described the mare as a horse of a lifetime, and stated: “We will remember her as a magical mare of pure talent, for whom jumping was easy and natural and who flew over the jumps with extraordinary determination and personality.”

Flora de Mariposa and Leprevost had a special partnership. Next to their medals, they won the CSI5* World Cup Grand Prix in Oslo as well as in Lyon in 2015, the CSI5* Grand Prix in Antwerp in 2016 – and they were also on the winning French Nations Cup teams in La Baule in 2017 and Rotterdam in 2014. Other big victories came in Leipzig, London, Paris, Verona and Zurich.

With this photo tribute, we look back at some of the many amazing moments in this special mare’s career. Thank you, Flora – wherever we went you were a pleasure to watch!
