Kathleen Raine's Fidelia Passed Away
Thursday, January 12, 2006
"She was a fantastic horse with a heart of gold," Raine's husband David Wightman told Eurodressage. "She has three babies that all live on our farm, one by Ferro that we own in parternership with Peter and Kim Wilson, and two by Juventus, one owned by Ann Hamilton and the other by Dan and Virginia Wightman. Fiddle, as we fondly call her, will be greatly missed. She was bought and brought to the states by Kathleen's mother Betsy Raine who passed away in 1996."
Raine and Fidelia competed in the U.S.E.T Olympic selection trials in the U.S. and Europe in 1999 and 2000 and were the alternates for the Sydney Olympics. The mare was 19 years old.
