After her last international competition in Aachen, the mare moved to Denmark to enjoy her retirement. The exact cause of her death is yet unknown.
"I was already missing her cracky face in the stable. Now I will have to miss her forever. She was my biggest love that gave me everything," Mansur writes on his Instagram.
