Richard Davison’s Former Olympic Horse Has Died

Ballaseyr Royale, former Olympic horse of British dressage rider Richard Davison has died. The Picandt daughter had to be put to sleep at age 27 since she suffered from her old age. In 2003, the pair was part of the bronze-winning team in Windsor – they had more than 70% in all three competitions. Royale and Davison also represented Great Britain at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, then the mare was retired. Her first foal, Bubblingh, is Davison’s current Grand Prix horse and was on the Longlist for Rio.
