Spirit T passed away
This is what all the breeder fear, but it is unfortunately part of the risks of breeding. Spirit T (Tornado x Carnaval Drum) gave birth to a filly last Sunday... but unfortunately, she had to be taken to the clinic due to complications. She didn’t make it and died at the age of 18. The little mare had taken the young Briton Jessica Mendoza to the European Junior Championships and then to the European Senior Championships before allowing her to compete in the Olympic Games at just 18 years old.
The rider paid a warm tribute on social networks to the one to whom she owes everything.
