Mikala Münter Gundersen’s Grand Prix horse My Lady is retired. The 17-year-old mare by Michellino was bought by owner Janne Rumbough in 2011 without any intention to make her into a Grand Prix horse. But under Gundersen, the mare grew into one of Denmark’s all time most successful dressage combinations. Mikala Gundersen and My Lady competed for Denmark at the 2014 WEG in Caen, as well as the 2015 European Championships in Aachen, helping her team qualify for the 2016 Rio Olympics, even though the pair themselves did not appear in Rio de Janeiro. They were however successful in the 2014 Lyon World Cup Final and the 2015 Las Vegas World Cup Final. The mare can now enjoy her retirement in her field at Ocala, Florida, awaiting her ‘new adventure’, according to owner Rumbough, as My Lady will be bred to the Vivaldi-son Vitalis.
