Lutz the Dressage Haflinger at Dressage Under the Stars in Wellington
Lutz was the little haflinger pony that could in the dressage world. He won the hearts of many as he toured through Wellington this season. However, as I look through the posts after he recently had to be put down I cannot help but wonder if the intense pressure to compete and parade around as a circus pony winning things like Dressage Under the Stars and the Two Tempi challenge are not what eventually led him to need to be put down from laminitis which in most cases is a treatable or manageable disease in horses.
