Adrienne Lyle’s 2012 London Olympic Games mount, Wizard, has incurred a minor injury that will prevent him from traveling to Europe to compete next month.
The 14-year-old Oldenburg gelding was slightly off on his left front, so Lyle, 28, decided to get him checked. “We thought maybe it was a bruise. We gave it a week, and he was still a hair off, so we decided to send him for an MRI,” she said. “It revealed he has an acute bruise on his coffin bone from probably smashing his foot down, pawing, anything really. He’s kind of a rambunctious child.”
