We’re heartbroken to confirm that Conair has died following an accident at fence 17 on the Advanced cross-country course at The Fork this morning. Conair looked wonderful at fence 16 when he galloped by me with Will Coleman in the irons, and the accident occurred just seconds later at fence 17, a big table to a cheese wedge. The Fork just released the following statement:
It was it with great sadness that we announce that Conair, ridden by Will Coleman and owned by the Conair Syndicate collapsed and died at The Fork event in Norwood, NC, USA at approximately 9:45 a.m. on the date above. Earlier Will and Conair had a fall on the Advanced cross country course and Conair proceeded to run back towards the barns. He was stopped and then transported to the barn for veterinary evaluation.
After the preliminary veterinary exam was completed, Conair collapsed and died. Cause of death has not yet been determined.
The entire organizing committee and officials extends its heartfelt condolences to Will Coleman and the Conair Syndicate at this difficult time.
I saw Conair gallop back by the mound complex after the accident, where he was caught by some spectators near the cross-country warmup. He looked fine when I saw him, so it’s incredibly shocking to lose him so suddenly. Will was up and OK after the fall, but he has reportedly gone to the hospital with his arm in a sling. 
It’s heartbreaking to lose any horse, but it stings a bit more when it’s one with so much talent and potential. Will just got the horse last year from Rodney Powell, and the partnership had been coming along so nicely. Will and Joey were third in the Fair Hill CCI3* last fall and were meant to go to Rolex for the horse’s first four star later this month. It goes without saying that this is a tragic loss for both Will and High Performance eventing.
The EN team extends our deepest condolences to Will, Katie, Shannon and the syndicate members who owned the horse. Rest in peace, Joey.

This horse was so talented and so gorgeous, unbelievably sad to lose him this way :’( Also horrible to lose two horses in similar fashion at the same event…

Let’s not forget the passing of Powderhouse on course either. RIP

Does NOT mean

  • I am rich
  • I am stuck up
  • I am prissy
  • I own my own horse

What it DOES mean is that

  • I ride horses
  • I am humble enough to shovel poop
  • I am an animal lover
  • I have no money

I think I work harder than most people I know… Everyone else was in college and I was working 7 days a week, riding, mucking out, etc.

I’m lookin for sponsors again. Woof Wear sent my request to their US distributor so fingers crossed.

Free ponies and lost time

Sooo… I’m bad at tumblr.. I also got stupid busy during hunt season. @_@; 

Anybody want a free OTTB with bad feet that make him suitable for being a pasture pet or maybe light riding if he gets some really good, consistent maintenance on his poor feets? He’s an absolute love and deserves to live out his life in comfort.

“Girl, you are a good rider. But, do you want to know the difference between being a good rider and a great rider? Attitude. Sit with your head up, seat deep in the saddle, hands close and ride that horse. Do not let him own you. You have what it takes, just own it.”
