The U.S. team came into the cross-country portion of the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in good spirits with high expectations. Although they’d drawn first in the order, it seemed like that might even be an advantage given that everyone expected the water-logged footing to deteriorate over the day.
Wild Lone, a horse ridden by Great Britain’s Harry Meade, collapsed and died at the conclusion of his cross-country course today at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games. A post mortem will be performed on the horse to establish a cause of death.
The World Games eventing horses jogged in front of the picturesque chateau at Haras du Pin, and all the U.S. horses passed with style. Check out the gallery of lovely photos of all the top names, hot favorites, and great quartermarks,
