Lauren Hough Ohlala retires from the sport

USA's Lauren Hough has decided to retire her championships horse Ohlala (Orlando). The USA female show jumping rider has announced the news on her Instagram profile.

"I would like to announce the end of Ohlala’s sporting career and the beginning of a new chapter of her life to focus on breeding. She is in very good health and very happy, but I just didn’t think that she would make it again to the very top of the sport with her injury from last year. * I would like to take a moment to thank my entire team and her wonderful owners for always allowing me to do what’s best for “Lala”. She has been a horse of a lifetime for me, and this was a difficult decision to come to terms with for me. However, I know in my heart that it’s the best one for her! * Thank you, Lala, for so many amazing victories all across the world... I'm not sure that I will ever replace you, but I hope to carry on your legacy with some beautiful foals! Lala, I know the sport will always remember you as the little mare with the biggest""

One of the major highlights of Ohlala's career was an individual bronze medal at the Pan Am Games in 2015.
