In Memoriam

Markus

Early Tuesday morning Patience and I lost our longtime friend and partner Markus. An OTTB who started eventing at 8 years old, Markus was the most honest, hard-working horse I’ve ever known and loved his life and competing. He looked forward to taking care of us over the big cross-country fences and always tried to please.

Markus had a fabulous career, was 2013 Area VII Horse of the Year, won numerous Thoroughbred Incentive Program awards, and consistently was in the top of every division he competed in. He carried me around numerous Advanced courses and brought home the Silver Medal in 2014 at the North American Junior Young Rider Championships with Patience O’Neal.
Markus was euthanized at 3 AM on Tuesday morning after rare findings during colic surgery.

This is an extremely sad time for our family and our sport. As a loyal and exuberant partner in our trying sport, Markus will be missed and a piece of our hearts will forever be with him.
