The Horse & Hound is reporting that Laura Collett will no longer ride her top mounts Noble Bestman and Allora 3.  Both horses are owned by Phillip Walker; Laura owned a share in Noble Bestman and had the option of a buy-out, but chose not to.  She had been based at Phillip Walker’s yard in Membury, Berks, but moved to Lambourn this fall.  Noble Bestman is still in rehab from a fractured pastern sustained at Boekelo.

From H&H:

I’m totally heartbroken, but I was left with no choice,”  she told H&H.

Laura said the decision had been made “for various reasons,”  but there had been “no falling out.”

“It’s gutting, especially the mare [Allora] — I produced her and sold  her to Philip because he liked her. I’m so disappointed as she was a  potential team horse, but she’s no longer an option, so I have to move on,” she  said.
