BRI­TISH rider Kay Maxted has re­tired her in­ter­na­tional grand prix horse Pri­valdi, at the age of 20. The Gribaldi son was still com­pet­ing at grand prix un­til last month, when Kay made the de­ci­sion to re­tire him while he was still fit and well, fol­low­ing a 69.26% vic­tory at Hick­stead.

“I’ve had him since he was eight, and I had al­ways wor­ried about what I was go­ing to do with him, but he is lov­ing be­ing turned out in the field, stuff­ing him­self with grass,” Kay told H&H.
