She was injured back in 2009 I believe while coming off her trailer. She fell & destroyed some tendons in her leg. They retired her because of it, & were planning on using her as a broodmare.
I guess, how the story goes, someone was driving past the fields & stopped in at the barn to tell them that there was an injured horse out there. Her leg had been busted completely at the knee so they put her down (she probably was rolling next the fence or something & got hung up).
Pasture accidents happen alot, especially with sport horses. You always hear of TB stallions dieing becuse they broke a leg in their pasture.

The drooling comes from stimulating their salivary glands when the horse is correctly on the bit.

A good dressage horse is not "trained to keep their necks bowed" and the headset comes from the rest of their body and movement and collection - NOT from anyone yanking on their mouth or trying to force / hold their head up and arched.

I've always loved Matine, it's too bad about what happened to her.
In interviews after his ride, Andreas said (in Danish) that he was actually riding her cautiously through the whole of the 2006 WEG. She was nervous as it was her first international show in such a huge ring with so many hundred thousands of people. You can even see for yourself - how she hesitated going near the edges of the arena and got a little perky with her ears.
But I'll never forget the big hug he gives her at the end!

If you're interested, Andreas is not riding for BlueHors anymore (I believe the deal ended in the same year that Matine was injured), but instead for Tørvesletten (the website is in Danish, but it's pretty easy to navigate - lot's of pictures and video). The five year-old Stamina is a really nice prospect.
Video at Falsterbo Horse Show - nice salute!
Video at Verden, Germany - in a stylish bowler hat?
(Andreas has improved his seat and legs, as you can see - not so much his hands!)
