Jennie Brannigan announced on Sunday morning that Stella Artois, who she pulled up two fences from home Saturday, and who was transported off course via ambulance, has suffered a soft tissue injury.

“I will say pulling her up with the easiest decision I have ever made. (I know what class horsewomen that I owe that to.),” she wrote on Instagram.  “She has suffered a soft tissue injury to a different leg than the one she had been coming back from. I’m not sure I would have this beautiful horse who I have had since 5 years old to bring home if I didn’t. Seeing her injured truly breaks my heart … and question a lot to be honest. I will update everyone with more information when we know more.”
