The dressage world is almost going tilt with a rumour of a possible sale of Carl Hester's Uthopia to Sweden. While the past three weeks were certainly the most stressful in Carl Hester's life ever, Eurodressage can confirm the horse has not been sold and is still in Carl's yard in Gloucestershire, Great Britain. Although Hester has said that his horse was secured for the 2012 Olympic Games, the cards were suddenly redealt after the 2011 CDI-W London when Swedish Minna Telde contacted owner Harrison because Telde's boyfriend Johan Ulander, a Finnish business mogul developing property in the United Arabic Emirates, was willing to put a dazzling, multi-million euro amount on the table for the 10-year old Dutch warmblood stallion (by Metall x Inspekteur).
