RIP Blue Hors Matine

Not sure if you all heard, but Blue Hors Matine had to be put down. Apparently she broke a leg during turnout.

What a shame :(
RIP and gallop free.

Oh my! I'm shocked to hear this...
She really was one of the happiest horses that ever danced through the dressage ring; she passaged her way into my heart with her floppy ears and silly tail. This is truly a sad event.
May Matine trot forever on an endless plain of green grass and carrots. <3

Here's a non-skipping version of her '06 Kur.

Okay, that's definitely the worst news of the day. That horse was so wonderful to watch. Dressage needs more like her and her rider.

You just have to see your don't have to like it.

Godspeed, Matine!!!

I couldn't believe it when I saw the update on facebook from Dressage Today! How awful! That poor girl had a rotten year - first the injury that retired her and now this.

She will be greatly missed for sure! She was the major inspiration for me to learn dressage.
