Great Britain's Amanda Derbyshire has announced the retirement of her 14-year-old success mare Luibanta BH (Luidam x Abantos). The pair represented Great Britain at the 2018 World Equestrian Games in Tryon and was a part of the bronze medal winning British squad at the 2019 European Championships in Rotterdam – to mention only a few of their many achievements together. 

On her official Instagram account, Derbyshire writes: "Today we waved goodbye to Luibanta BH as she heads back across the pond to retire and breed. Lulu gave me everything for the last 5 years, she was a little mare with the biggest of hearts…. I’ll never be able to thank her enough for all she has given me, from jumping my first 5* Grand Prix to winning my first nations cup and many other classes! Together we represented Great Britain at the World Equestrian Games and the European Championships. Thank you to @beckygochman for owning and keeping such a special horse for me and of course to all the people along the way who cared and supported us on our exciting journey. You made so many of this little girls dreams come true Lulu, and for that I owe you everything! Happy retirement princess!"

At World of Showjumping, we wish Luibanta BH a very happy retirement!
