London, England – July 02, 2020 – Scott Brash (GBR) has released a statement announcing the passing away of his famous partner Bon Ami. The Brit and the 19-year-old bay Belgian Warmblood gelding (Pavarotti van de Helle x Dixi) partnered for a successful career, having registered a total of 24 FEI-level wins.

The Brit made the following statement on his Facebook account:

“It comes with a heavy heart to announce the passing of Bon Ami. He won so many classes throughout his career and helped our team to reach world number 1. He was renowned for winning some of the best speed classes in the world as well as helping us secure our first ever World Cup win in Toronto and has been a very special horse to me and my team. After retiring from international competition he spent his final years back home in Scotland where he had an amazing home with our friends and their young kids. Bon Ami will have a special place in so many of our hearts and I thank everyone who has been a part of his journey.”
