Jessica pays tribute to Ramiro
Jessica Mendoza’s talented little horse, Ramiro de Bellevue has died aged 16 following colic complications after an eye operation at Team Mendoza's base in Holland.
Ramiro took Jess from winning at her first Global Tour (pictured here, in London 2014) to winning her first Derby and car, in Eindhoven.
Jessica, currently out in Wellington, Florida for the Winter Equestrian Festival commented on Facebook:
“It’s been such a sad and tough week for him and all of us. I couldn't have asked for a better few years on him. He was the most cheeky and cheerful character who has a special place in all my team’s heart.”
