Citaat:Mary Hanna Loses Her Top Horse Limbo
September 19, 2004
Mary Hanna and LimboIt is with great sadness that we heard the news of the tragic death of Mary & Rob Hanna’s wonderful horse Limbo.
Limbo was in quarantine in Great Britain on his way home from the Athens Olympic Games when he succumbed to a temperature and subsequent complications.
The dedicated and committed veterinary team at the quarantine station, as well as UK-based Australian Team Vet, Graham Potts, left nothing to chance over the past week with around-the-clock monitoring and expert care. Unfortunately, however, Limbo's condition worsened early this morning and Mary and Rob were left with no alternative but to the make the most difficult of decisions.
Mary and Limbo have been together since 1998 and were members of the Australian Dressage Team in Aachen 1999, the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games, the 2002 World Equestrian Games Jerez, the 2003 Open European Championships in Hickstead and the Athens 2004 Olympic Games where they achieved a personal best at an International competition.
Closer to home they competed successfully in every major competition in Australia as well as the 2004 CDI-W in New Zealand earlier this year.
Our deepest sympathy goes out to Mary, Rob and Limbo’s groom and friend Simone Bel
