Oki Doki, the international show jumper who became famous for his partnership with former owner/rider Albert Zoer, died recently following complications from surgery to repair an injured tendon while competing in Cannes in June.
The 14-year-old Dutch-bred gelding underwent surgery and was recoving well. He was on post opertative medication following standard procedure, but developed complications.
He was immediately placed under veterinary monitoring and transported to Bern Clinic by the veterinary team who never left his side. However, despite the best possible veterinary care, Oki Doki died due to septic shock in the abdomen.

Oki Doki’s successes include finishing third at the 2009 Rolex FEI World Cup Show Jumping Final and winning the 2008 Olympia Grand Prix at London’s International Olympia Horse Show.
