Ruth Edge’s four-star horse Marsh Mayfly retired

Ruth Edge’s former four-star ride Marsh Mayfly has been retired.

The 17-year-old mare finished second at Luhmühlen in 2009 and 17th at Burghley in 2006. She also had numerous top 10 places at three-star and won Samur CCI3* in 2005.

“Flower” went onto to compete a two-star with Candida Crawford and Khia Cadney-Moon. Last season Flower was a schoolmaster for her owner Joanna Buckley competing at BE100.

Burnham Market Horse Trials April 2009“Flower and I had a great season together last year but when she returned to work at the beginning of this season, she was beginning to feel her age,” Joanna told H&H.

“Having already had a foal by ProSet in 2008, and being an SHB (GB) graded mare, I’m delighted to confirm she is in foal to Jaguar Mail.

“Flower is very special having taught me so much in a short space of time. She will be thoroughly spoilt through her retirement.”
