Wild Lone, a horse ridden by Great Britain’s Harry Meade, collapsed and died at the conclusion of his cross-country course today at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games. A post mortem will be performed on the horse to establish a cause of death.
The 13-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding owned by Charlotte Opperman had just completed the tough four-star course with no jumping penalties and 26.4 time. The horse collapsed shortly after Meade dismounted.
"He felt totally normal and perfect until the moment I got off," said Meade.
