Walterstown Don Statement

Equestrian Australia is deeply saddened to report the loss of Lauren Burnell’s Walterstown Don, a 16-year-old Irish Sport Horse, ridden by Australian Rebecca Braitling, who died at Twin Rivers in Paso Robles, California at the weekend, when he collapsed between fences 18 and 19 on the CIC3* cross country course.

The cause of his collapse is not known pending a necropsy exam. His rider, Bec Braitling, was transferred to Sierra Vista Regional Medical for care and came home from the hospital last night. 

Equestrian Australia would like to extend their sympathy to Lauren Burnell, Rebecca Braitling, the horse's groom and the team.
