We are sad to report that Bottoms Up III, a 9-year-old gelding owned by Mark and Louise Milligan, was humanely euthanized today as a result of a seizure while competing at the Tattersalls International Horse Trials in Ireland. Bottoms Up II was competing in the Connolly’s Red Mills CCI2* Under 25 division with rider David Doel of Great Britain.
David and Bottoms Up were 16th at the 2015 Chatsworth CIC* and eighth at the Cappoquin – Camphire Int. Horse Trails last summer. Bottoms Up was competing in his first two-star at Tattersalls with David, a European Young Rider Championship medalist.
Our thoughts are with David and his team during this sad time.
