2012 LUHMUEHLEN – YING YANG YO

2012 LUHMUEHLEN Thomas Luhmmuehlen
YING YANG YO

Retired

By chance, I partnered up with my old friend Thomas (Ying Yang Yo) for one last campaign at the top level.  After winning the Fair Hill CCI *** in the fall before, I new he had another big one in him.

We were originally heading for Rolex, but an eye injury re-routed us to Luhmuehlen in Germany.  At about midway on the cross country course I noticed Thomas gasping for air. He started jumping poorly, so I decided to pull him up at fence 19.  An airway scope the next day showed that somehow, Thomas had a collapsed airway.

He is a fantastic horse that never stops trying, and I am glad I made the decision to retire him on course. Thomas now heads back to America where he will live life in Luxury in New Hampshire with his owners, Denise Lahey and Pierre Colin, at Stony Brook Farm.
