It is with the deepest regret that the GMHA Organizing Committee announces that Ms. Jennifer Chapin suffered a fatal accident while competing at the Green Mountain Horse Association’s Festival of Eventing in South Woodstock, Vermont on August 11, 2019.

Chapin, aged 32, from Wenham, Massachusetts, and her horse, Joinem, a 12-year-old Thoroughbred gelding (Johar x Keemon), suffered a rotational fall in the cross-country warm-up. Chapin was transported to the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center where she succumbed to her injuries. Joinem was reported to be uninjured.

The USEA sends its sincerest condolences to Chapin's family, friends, and connections.
