Allison Springer's recently acquired, and extraordinarily promising mount, Lionheart, was euthanized on January 18 following complications due to colic. Formerly piloted to the four-star level by William Fox-Pitt, the 12-year-old Westphalian gelding was bought by the Team Lionheart Syndicate LLC in the fall of 2013.
Our hearts go out to Allison, the members in the Team Lionheart Syndicate, and all of those affected by the loss of this magnificent animal.
