Last week we had the positive news on the website about Mandy Wilms going to a competition with her new horse Apache. Soon she would compete her other horse Samsonite (pictures) again after an injury as well.
Unfortunately during Christmas a tragedy has taken place for Mandy and Samsonite at The Beukenvallei. Because of Samsonites injury and revalidation he could be very fit. He was handwalked three times a day besides the daily training.
On Saturday he went for his second walk that day. As always 'Sammie' was very fit and happy but he was so excited that he fell. First it didn't look too bad but Sammie did not stand up and died unexpectedly. It's a terrible loss. We feel very sorry for Mandy and her family.
