Other information HORSE RETIREMENT
In February 2018 she announced the retirement of her horse Uptown Boy [Odermus R x Joost]. She had competed with the mount for almost 10 years. "He entered my stable as a wild naughty seven-year-old youngster, and with that a long beautiful journey began." (worldofshowjumping.com, 28 Feb 2018)

In 2013 her top horse Palloubet d'Hallong was bought by Dutch equestrian Jan Tops on behalf of showjumpers from Qatar, who train with him. "There is no chance that I will ever get a second Palloubet. There was so much interest in him, so many offers and such big money. We turned down so many offers and the money just kept going up. There came a point where we just had to say yes. The memories are unbelievable and no one can take that away from me." (pferdewoche.ch, 02 Feb 2016; noellefloyd.com, 18 Sep 2013)
