On July 2, 2023, McLain Ward took to Facebook to announce the retirement of his “queen”, HH Azur.
“Annie” and Ward have a long list of accomplishments including a 9th place individual finish and a Silver Medal with the United States team at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. Other wins include the 2017 Longines FEI World Cup Jumping Final, the 2019 $500,000 Rolex Grand Prix at Wellington Equestrian Festival (WEF), and the 2020 $401,000 Lugano Diamonds Grand Prix at WEF, among many others.
The Belgian Warmblood mare is retiring at the age of 17 years old.
