Brentina Retires

Debbie McDonald and Brettina's Final Ride

Debbie McDonald and Brentina's Final Ride

The retirement ceremony of Brentina, the 18 year old Hannovarian mare ridden by Debbie McDonald was a bitter sweet occasion. As I watched this incredible pair enter the arena, in the spot light as the announcer highlighted their impressive career I couldn’t help but tear up. Debbie was obviously emotional as she made that last ride around the ring, then stopping to take the mare’s tack off and replace it with a spray of roses.
