Swedish Showjumper: Victim or Offender?

In a world where animal rights are taken seriously, allegations of horse mistreatment often spark intense controversies. One such case involves Douglas Lindelöw, a European medal-winning Swedish showjumper. Following accusations of horse abuse, Lindelöw found himself suspended from national team activities and international competitions and has been reported to the police.

Proclaiming his innocence and refuting the accusations through a public statement, Lindelöw assured his care and training regimen for horses fell within established norms and regulations. However, the final judgment is still in the air. More details on this story can be found here.

Saying Goodbye to a Star: Seacookie TSF

It is hard to bid farewell to legendary horses, particularly those that have stolen the hearts of many. Such is the case of Seacookie TSF, William Fox-Pitt’s five-star-winning ride. At the ripe old age of 25, Seacookie TSF was humanely put down, marking the end of a glamorous career and a happy ten-year retirement.

Originally produced by German Olympic rider Ingrid Klimke, Seacookie TSF was spotted by William at Boekelo. Describing the horse as “a real athlete”, “light and extravagant”, William reminisces about the wonderful rides at the five-star level that the horse gave him.
