Respected Scottish sport horse breeder, Dugald Low-Mitchell died on 14 November. He was 91.
A former cattle farmer who set up Balcormo Stud in Fife in 1970, he was one of the first British breeders to import a Dutch warmblood colt. The stallion, Secundus, went on to sire top performers in every discipline.
An acknowledged artificial insemination expert, Dugald — whose first love was hunting — was a founder member and honorary president of the Scottish Sports Horse studbook.
He leaves a wife, Jacky, and daughters Sandra and Jennifer, who all competed at top level.
