At the age of 25, Jos Lansink’s legendary Cumano (Cassini I x Landgraf) has passed away.

Cumano won the World Championship title in Aachen in 2006, claimed the silver medal at the European Championships in Mannheim in 2007 and competed at the Olympic Games in Athens in 2004 and in Hong Kong in 2008.

In 2011, Cumano was retired from the sport during CHIO Aachen and has enjoyed life at Jos Lansink's farm ever since. Cumano has also proved himself as a top sire, with offspring such as Nasa, Nenuphar’Jac, Noblesse des Tess, Neptune Brecourt, Newton du Haut Bois, Navalo De Poheton and Wesselina all jumping at the highest level of the sport. 

On his official Facebook page, Lansink writes:

"He was a horse who never gave up and never let me down.
After his sporting career, he was enjoying his well deserved retirement in the fields at my stables in Meeuwen.
He was in the field day in and day out.
Even when he was enjoying his retirement, he always showed that he was still the king.

Thank you for everything, buddy.
You’re not with us anymore, but you will live forever in our hearts."

Our thoughts go out to Jos, Maarten and all those close to Cumano.
