Sweden's number one Grand Prix rider Patrik Kittel has withdrawn his horse Well Done de la Roche from competing in the 2021 Olympic Games in Tokyo. The mare is not fit to compete.
Well Done de la Roche CMF is a 13-year old Swiss warmblood mare by Furstentraum x Walt Disney.
The pair has a bit of a rollercoaster 2021 show season travelling to world to clinch Swedish Olympic team selection.
They flew to the CDI Doha in Qatar, where the mare passed the horse inspection but was withdrawn soon after out of fear for a possible food contamination. Their second show of the season, the CDI-W Mariakalnok in Hungary, ended prematurely as the mare was rung out of the Grand Prix for blood. The pair found their groove again at the CDIO Compiegne, where they bagged a double victory and reconfirmed their form at the CDI Le Mans mid June with another double victory.
