Final farewell to a championship eventer with a ‘heart of gold’

A four-star event horse with a “heart of gold” has been put down aged 14, less than three months after he was retired.

Grand Manoeuvre was put down on Thursday (26 July). The chestnut gelding, who was owned by Diana and David Chappell, completed Badminton three times, last in 2016 when he jumped double clear and finished 22nd. He was also 13th at the Blair European Championships, giving Laura Collett her first senior championship completion.

Laura said she was “totally devastated” by the loss of “Milo”.
