The USEA is very sad to hear the news of the passing of From, the 28-year-old Russian Thoroughbred gelding (Mif x Floema), owned by Charlotte Harris and ridden by Stephen Bradley.

From started his eventing career with Katja Leskinen in 1999 competing through the Intermediate level. Peter Green took over the ride in 2001 and moved From up to Advanced. In March of 2002, Bradley and From made their partnership debut with a 14th place finish in the Advanced at Pine Top Horse Trials. The following spring they placed 12th at the Kentucky CCI4* (now CCI5*) and 16th that fall at the Burghley CCI4* (now CCI5*). In 2004, Bradley and From had their best five-star placing – finishing fifth at the Kentucky Three-Day Event. In 2007 the pair finished second at the Jersey Fresh CCI3* (now CCI4*-L) and were selected to the team at the Pan American Games in Rio de Janeiro where they would finish 13th individually and help the team win a gold medal. The Kentucky Three-Day Event in 2008 would be Bradley and From’s final appearance together – finishing in eighth place. Jane Jennings competed From in 2009 through the Advanced level and in 2010 Elizabeth Durden concluded From’s eventing career with great success at the Training level.

“From had a personality that was as big as his talent. I am so thankful to have been a part of his life and am grateful to everyone that made that possible,” said Bradley in a statement on his website. “Even when they were both competing at the highest level, From and Brandenburg’s Joshua were always turned out together and traveled together. Having them both going at the same time was one of the highlights of my career.”

From transitioned from eventing to the hunters with Tracy Mathews for the last chapter of his competitive career.

“From was so lucky to have Tracy Mathews caring for him for the past several years. While he was initially meant to be Tracy’s partner in the hunter ring, he made himself at home in her barn and never left,” continued Bradley.

Mathews shared, “From was a legend for sure, and hands down the nicest horse I have ever had the pleasure of riding. Many thanks to Stephen and Charlotte for entrusting me with this special horse for so many years.”

The USEA sends its sincerest condolences to all of From’s connections and fans.
