The KWPN licensed stallion Lingh, who was Edward Gal's career starting Grand Prix horse, has passed away on 23 October 2020. He was 27 years old and spent his retirement at the Casper family's stallion station Birkhof in Donzdorf, Germany.
"I was expecting Thomas Casper’s phone call this fall and today it happened," Lingh's owner Karin Reid Offield told Eurodressage. On social media she shared that, "I am so sad to tell you we allowed Lingh to go for the green green fields without the constraint of a stable, yesterday at 1:43 EST."

Lingh was born in 1993 and bred by R. Brinkman and H. Dalling in The Netherlands. He was by Flemmingh out of Gazelle (by Columbus x Uppercut xx).
Originally owned by Theo van Sadelhoff, Lingh was trained from novice to Grand Prix by Edward Gal. The bright bay became Gal's first Dutch team horse.
