The USEA is sad to report that Enchantez, an 18-year-old Thoroughbred gelding (Devil’s Joy x Reunion) was euthanized today due to a broken leg. Owned and ridden by Clare Walker, Enchantez was competing in the Open Intermediate division at the Champagne Run Horse Trials at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Ky. The accident happened on the landing of a jump early on the cross-country course and Walker was uninjured in the fall.

Enchantez competed through the CCI4* with his previous owner, Lindsay Oaks, and finished 35th at the 2014 Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event. Walker and Enchantez had been together since the spring of 2015.

The USEA sends our condolences to Walker and all of Enchantez’ connections.

The morning started out in the ring at Barnstaple South with three groups of riders – Beginner Novice, Training, and Preliminary, and three groups of the same levels took to the cross-country in the afternoon. While the exercises and jumps got progressively harder throughout the day, the warm-ups and themes stayed the same.

The USEA Educational Symposium is a unique opportunity each winter for eventers to gather together to soak in knowledge. The first two days of the 2020 Symposium focus on the USEA Instructors’ Certification Program (ICP) with attendees learning how to be better, more effective instructors. German Olympian and world-renowned rider Andreas Dibowski is this year’s guest instructor and he spent the first day dedicated to dressage with one Advanced show jumping group to wrap-up the day. Dibowski taught the instructors to teach using demo riders and horses from Beginner Novice to Advanced of all ages, breeds, and sizes.
