With an hearth touching message, paralympic dressage amazon Natasha Baker communicated the sad news. After a small wound the horse procured himself in the field, Cabral contracted an infection by Clostridia bacteria which was deadly to him.

Here the message that Natasha Baker left on her Facebook Page.

Writing this with a totally broken heart. This weekend I suddenly lost my soul mate, my best friend and my dancing partner. After a short illness from a small wound from the field he contracted Clostridia bacteria. JP was a horse like no other, a true legend. He was discovered by fluke and I instantly knew he was ‘the one’. He made my dreams come true over and over again. We’ve had the best journey together and he has given me memories I will treasure forever, I cannot thank him enough. He gave me his heart and together we took on the world. 11 gold medals, Paralympic records, endless national and international titles, we defied the odds and he gave me absolutely everything he had. He had the kindest soul and his heart was made of gold.
