Jessica Springsteen (USA) has announced the retirement of her top mare Davendy S. The mare has been with Jessica since 2014 after being brought up by Cedric Angot and Eugenie Angot, registering
The American and the 16-year-old bay Belgian Warmblood mare (Kashmir van Schuttershof x Pachat II) formed a winning partnership, especially in speed classes. Besides many top placings, Springsteen and the mare were able to record a total of 17 victories together, several of them at the highest level of the sport, including while competing in the Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF) and Longines Global Champions Tour (LGCT).
