The dawning of the off-season always brings with it a spate of bittersweet retirement announcements, and the latest to hit the airwaves is that of the excellent five-star mare Wieloch’s Utah Sun, piloted by Sweden’s Louise Romeike. Among the 17-year-old Holsteiner’s accomplishments are a clear run at Badminton in  2019, an eleventh-place finish at the 2017 European Championships, and competitive finishes at Aachen, Blair Castle, and Luhmühlen. Happy retirement, Urmel!
