Gemma Tattersall’s Quicklook V has been retired

Gemma Tattersall’s Olympic and European Championship ride Quicklook V has been retired following a sparkling career with numerous international wins.

The 16-year-old mare “with a heart of gold” scored major wins at Chatsworth CIC3* (now CCI4*-S) in 2017 and Bramham CCI4*-S in 2019, was part of the British team at the Rio 2016 Olympics and finished eighth as an individual at the 2017 Europeans.

Gemma told H&H that the plan is to breed from “Pebbles”, who had a foal as a youngster and already has a number of exciting embryo transfer (ET) offspring.

She explained that she and owners, the Pebbles Syndicate, had already decided not to event the mare again, owing to a small soundness issue, and considered she might enjoy some fun showjumping and eventing grand prix classes in her senior years, should she be fit to do so, “as she is such a cool dude”.

“It’s nothing serious and she’s very comfortable,” said Gemma, adding that they came to the conclusion that retirement was the right decision for the mare.
