At this month’s SCIO in St. Gallen, Quismy des Vaux, French Kevin Staut’s mare, was severely injured in an attack by Romain Duguet’s horse Otello du Soleil. According to the Grand Prix Magazin it is as yet still unclear if the horse will make a full recovery. An MRI showed that due to the fight an inflammation has occurred. So the French rider has to wait and see.
The organizers of the event have announced that the boxes had met the FEI’s requirements and that between 5.30 pm and 7.30 am three security men with dogs had kept watch. Throughout the whole time period nothing out of the ordiinary had happened.
