‘Another year at elite level is not in his best interest’: Olympic medallist retires

The USA Olympic team horse Goerklintgaards Dublet has been retired from competition, aged 17.

With Kasey Perry-Glass, the Diamond Hit x Ferro gelding represented the USA at the Rio Olympics in 2016, helping secure team bronze. Two years later the combination won team silver on home soil at the World Equestrian Games in Tryon, North Carolina, as well as finishing sixth individually.

They also reached the World Cup final in 2017 and 2019, where they finished seventh and fifth respectively. The 2019 World Cup final in Gothenburg, Sweden, was the pair’s last international outing, where they posted 84.98% in the freestyle.
