It is with great sadness that the Caber Farm September Horse Trials Organizing Committee reports that Rocket Man lovingly know in the barn and shown previously as Warrior, a 6-year-old Oldenburg gelding (W Revenue x Moon Legacy) ridden by Erin Grandia and owned by Erin and Julie McPherson, was euthanized due to injuries sustained after getting loose from the stabling at Caber Farm on September 4th, 2020. The veterinarian was on site and immediately tended to Warrior. The members of the Caber Farm Organizing Committee wish to extend their deepest sympathy and condolences to all those connected with Warrior.

If a horse doesn’t have a proven eventing record, those interested in finding their next eventing partner must use other criteria to evaluate a horse’s potential in the sport. Understanding and appraising a horse’s conformation can be a way to look into a crystal ball for that horse’s future suitability for eventing.
