Nov. 25 marked MHS Going Global’s last day at Greg Broderick’s Ballypatrick Stables in Thurles, Ireland. Greek heiress and international show jumper Athina Onassis has purchased the 10-year-old Irish superstar.

“It's been an unbelievable journey for us right from novice classes in Ireland to making dreams come true with Olympic Games and Nations Cup wins,” posted Broderick on his Facebook page.

Amateur rider Cloe Hymowitz has purchased Reed Kessler’s 2012 London Olympic Games mount Cylana.

Kessler announced the sale on her Facebook page: “It’s with tears in my eyes that I announce Cylana will be moving on to the next chapter of her career. Cylana has been the horse of a lifetime for me. She made me into the rider I am today for which I am forever grateful. It is a very bittersweet moment for me, no doubt the hardest decision of my life.”

The online auction sale of Dutch show jumper Jeroen Dubbeldam’s Olympic, World Games and European Championships partner, SFN Zenith N.O.P., was unsuccessful, with the Springpaarden Fonds Nederland fund buying the horse back at the conclusion of the bidding period.

The Showjumping Fund of the Netherlands has announced that it’ll sell all six horses under its ownership—including SFN Zenith N.O.P., Jeroen Dubbeldam’s FEI World and European Championship mount—in an online auction on Sept. 21. The auction will be operated by BVA Auctions in the Netherlands.   

Conrad de Hus, the horse that helped Gregory Wathelet of Belgium take the individual silver medal in the 2015 European Championships (Germany), has been sold to Hunter Harrison’s Double H Farm, to be competed by U.S. rider Quentin Judge.

The 11-year-old Holsteiner stallion (Con Air—Minne I, Locato) was also a part of the Belgian team that won the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup Final in Barcelona in 2015 and jumped on the team at the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games (France). Wathelet and Conrad de Hus won the Longines GCT Grand Prix in Chantilly, France.
