At the age of 16, Derin Demirsoy’s Harry K (Equest Carnute x Robin Z) retires from the sport. 

Harry K jumped on to the international scene with Denmark’s Sören Knudsen in the saddle. In 2013, Demirsoy took over the reins and went on to have lots of success with the stallion – winning the CSI4* World Cup in Doha in 2016 and the CSIO3* Grand Prix in Drammen in 2017. The pair was also on the winning Turkish Nations Cup team at CSIO3* Sopot back in 2014.

On his official Instagram page, Demirsoy writes: 

“The time has come to retire my dear friend Harry K from the sport. Harry has been not only my best friend but a major part of our family for over 7 years. He has made so many of my dreams come true and helped me build the career that I have today. 

Harry, the love, the appreciation and the gratitude I have for you is indescribable. I cannot thank you enough for all that you have done for me, my family and my team, both in the ring and on a daily basis. I am confident that you will have the best retirement back in your hometown in Denmark with your old friends. You deserve nothing but the best my champ, my MVP! 

Enjoy your retirement and make some beautiful babies.”

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