Dani G. Waldman has announced the retirement of her top horse Lizziemary (Cabri d’Elle x Accord II, breeder M. Dawson).

Waldman took over the reins on the now 15-year-old mare in 2016, and the year after the two won the CSI5* LGCT Grand Prix together in Cascais. In 2018, they topped the CSI5* Rolex Grand Prix at the Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington and in 2019 they won the CSI5* LGCT Grand Prix in Shanghai and Berlin as well as the CSI5* Palm Beach Equine Clinic Grand Prix at the Winter Equestrian Festival. Waldman and Lizziemary represented Israel at the 2017 and 2019 European Championships as well as at the 2018 World Equestrian Games, and helped Israel qualify for the Olympic Games when winning the Group C qualifier in Moscow in the summer of 2019. 

Prior to Waldman, Billy Twomey had lots of success with Lizziemary – winning the CSIO5* Longines King George V Gold Cup at Hickstead in 2016. 

On her official Instagram account, Dani G. Waldman writes:

"Happy retirement Lizziemary

Quite simply, you made my life Lizzie.

In my humble (and biased) opinion, no horse deserved to go to Tokyo more than Liz...she earned her place in the history books and it’s one of the most difficult disappointments in my life not to share the upcoming Games with her...but that being said, Lizziemary, I love you, I miss you and I will do everything in my power to honor the incredible athlete and partner you were. Now it’s time to be a mama and enjoy your retirement. 

Thank you to the enormous support team who nurtured her, loved her and tried their heart out for her—your dedication does not go unacknowledged."

At World of Showjumping, we wish Lizziemary a happy retirement!
