“It has been a really difficult decision for me, but I believe it is the best decision,” said White, 28. “I have enjoyed three great years with the mare for which I am extremely grateful. She has been a fantastic horse for me. I would have loved to take a shot at the Canadian Team for the 2012 Olympic Games, but the sale will allow me to continue to grow my business and to invest in more horses for the future.”

Of the sale, White said, “Richard De Martini of Elm Rock LLC has purchased Celena Z for Margie Engle to ride. With Celena Z and Indigo, the horse she has now, the hope is that she can try to make the U.S. team for the London Olympic Games.”
