A horse has died after an accident while competing at the FEI World Endurance Championships at Euston Park in Britain.

Karrimh, an 18-year-old gelding owned and ridden by Donna Oudshoorn of The Netherlands, was put down as a result of the accident on Saturday at the event in Suffolk.

Karrimh (Krimh x Sarina)  stumbled and fell while on loop one of the 160km championship course.

The Dutch team had started the competition with just three riders, after Jannet van Wijk’s horse Zaira Star was declared not to be fit enough and stayed home, and Theo Heldens ‘s D-Prodigy was injured before the competition at Euston Park.

The remaining combinations were Barbara Peterse with Pachinco, and Dutch champion Carmen Römer with Gitana.

The event was televised live by FEI TV.
