News & Notes:

Ingrid Klimke has announced the retirement of her four-star partner, SAP Escada FRH. Escada partnered with Ingrid for her first career CCI4* win a Luhmühlen in 2015 and was competing at the Event Riders Masters at Wiesbaden earlier this month when she aggravated an old injury. Ingrid says Escada will likely now enjoy retirement as a mother — we can’t wait to see that baby! [Escada to Retire]
