Jean E Moyer (McCaw), age 69, of Gig Harbor, Washington, passed away January 10, 2020, from long term complications of type 2 diabetes. Jean was born on August 1, 1950 in Somerville, New Jersey. She spent a childhood in Mt. Penn, Pennsylvania, before marrying James Moyer on November 30, 1974. Together in 1977, they made the move to Washington State and made it their home. Her loving husband, James survives.

Jean’s unwavering passion for horses granted her a life well spent of adventures. As an equestrian rider and coach, she achieved pony club graduate level “A”, English BHSI certification, and Canadian Level III Coaching. She achieved international recognition as a legendary trendsetting coach of the equestrian sport of eventing. Within the 45 years of experience, using her keen eye and understanding of horse and rider, the Pacific Northwest eventing community was rewarded with many international medals and accolades, thanks to the innovating coaching of Jean.

Jean is survived by devoted husband, James, and a family of many friends, who cherish her memory. The halls of eventing, will forever echo her call of “GOOD GIRL!”, “GOOD BOY!”

A celebration of Jean Moyer will be held Saturday, February 8, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. at Aspen Farms, 15910 130th Trail South, Yelm, Washington. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to USPC-NW Region (www.northwest.ponyclub.org).

The 411 on Colic

As the season begins to turn, the temperature begins to drop, turnout time becomes more limited, schedules shift to accommodate the waning daylight and the possibility for a colicky horse increases. While the exact environmental causes of colic are not well understood, a commonly accepted theory is that any abrupt changes to a horse’s environment or schedule can increase the risk of colic.
