The 21-year old Hexagons Ollright has passed away at his home in Great Britain on Monday morning 22 May 2017. The Dutch warmblood gelding was 21 years old and suffering from old age.

"Olly had severe arthritis. Although he was eating and looked well, he was having trouble getting up and down. He suddenly got very bad in the last few days and despite veterinary help he wad getting worse," Dane Rawlins told Eurodressage. Ollright spent his last years in Hickstead, Great Britain as a schoolmaster for Lady Harris.  

"We, along with the vet and Lady Harris, felt that it was kind to put him to sleep before he could not get up any more. Everyone here is very sad as he was a great friend with a wonderful history and place in our sport, particularly for the Dutch Team under the super training and riding of Laurens van Lieren. Olly was a real Star!"
