Michael Pollard’s team of international event horses was involved in a road traffic accident just five miles from his training center in Dalton, Georgia this morning when their trailer turned over trapping all six horses on board. Five horses were cut free and survived with lacerations, but tragically Michael’s new stallion VDL Ulando H died at the scene.No one was injured in the accident, which was caused by the driver of another vehicle pulling out in front of them without seeing the trailer. Icarus, Schoensgreen Hanni, Jude’s Law, Raphael and Little Star sustained minor lacerations. They are all at home and in a comfortable condition. Michael was not at home at the time. The horses were being driven by his groom, and according to police at the scene, there was nothing that could have been done to avoid the oncoming vehicle.
