Liz Edgar Passed Away After Short Battle with Cancer

It is with the greatest sadness that we hear of the passing of Liz Edgar, who will remembered by many not only for her successful showjumping career, which saw her become the first woman rider to win the legendary Grand Prix at Aachen in 1980, but also as a knowledgeably and passionate breeder. 

One the most successful and famous horses she bred was of course the fantastic AES mare Diva II by Kannan out of her mare Debutante, who went on to represent Britain at the European Championships 2015 with Ben Maher. 

Liz's passing is a great loss to the equestrian world. Our thoughts are with her family.
