Irish showjumper Denis Lynch‘s top mare Coulisa is recovering well after fracturing her elbow in a fall last month.

The 10-year-old German-bred mare took a crashing fall in the first round of the grand prix in Rotterdam when she picked up a stride early at the triple bar (22 June).

The chestnut daughter of Couleur Rubin was transported out of the arena in a horse ambulance and underwent surgery with a local veterinary team soon after.

Denis, who won the San Giovanni grand prix with Coulisa in May, told H&H the mare is now back at home and being led out in-hand every day with good signs of recovery — although she is still expected to be on the sidelines for several months.
