Organisers of the Equestrian.com Liverpool International Horse Show announce with a sense of deep regret and profound sadness that the 13-year-old bay gelding Antello Z has been put to sleep.
Antello Z, ridden by Ireland’s Cameron Hanley, hesitated before taking off at a fence in Friday’s 1.45m two-phase international class at Liverpool Echo Arena, and then stumbled on landing.
The horse received expert on-site veterinary assessment and care.
The rider was uninjured.
Nina Barbour, president of the Equestrian.com Liverpool International Horse Show, said: “We offer our heartfelt and sincere condolences to Cameron, his support team, the Hanley family and all connections of a truly wonderful horse.”
