US dressage star Dublet retires

By Equestrian Life

Dublet, the horse ridden by American Kasey Perry-Glass at the Rio Olympics and Tryon World Equestrian Games has been officially retired.

The 17 year old Danish Warmblood, registered with the FEI as Goerklintgaards Dublet, had been aimed at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics before it was rescheduled.

The pair were part of the US bronze medal winning team at Rio alongside Laura Graves on Verdades, Steffen Peters on Legolas and Allison Brock on Rosevelt. At the 2018 WEG, they were part of the silver medal winning team comprised of Laura on Verdades, Steffen Peters on Suppenkasper and Adrienne Lyle on Salvino. In 2017, the pair were national Grand Prix champions.

Their final event was the FEI World Cup Final in Göteborg in April 2019, where the pair finished fourth in the Grand Prix (77.267%) and fifth in the Freestyle (84.975%).

In a post on Facebook, Kasey paid tribute to the retired star:

“I imagined that today I would be waking up and preparing myself to ride Dublet down centerline in Tokyo for one final freestyle as a competitive pair, but instead I come on here today to announce Dublet’s retirement with both a heavy but joyful heart. The past almost decade with Dublet has changed not only my life but everyone’s around us. He has given all of us inspiration, hope, love, beauty, and a sense of belief that everything and anything is possible."
