Earlier this month, Callan Solem announced the retirement of her long-time partner VDL Wizard (Gentleman x Ahorn). With the 17-year-old KWPN gelding, Solem competed at the 2016 Longines FEI World Cup Final in Gothenburg, Sweden, where the pair finished 7th overall. In 2015, Solem and VDL Wizard finished second in the CS14* Longines FEI World Cup in Washington as well as third in the World Cup in Lexington. The two were also part of numerous Nations Cup teams for the US, winning the CS104* Nations Cup in Coapexpan, Mexico in 2015 and were on the US shorts on the US short list for the 2016 Olympic Games.
