It is with great sadness that we announce that the horse Visionary Patriarch, owned and ridden by Jacel Galloway of Covington, Georgia, was euthanized today following a fall on the preliminary cross-country course at Poplar Place Farm November Horse Trials. The event veterinarian attended the horse immediately but determined there was irreparable damage to the leg.
The USEA and everyone at Poplar Place extend their deepest condolences to Jacel on the loss of her horse.

Four years ago, Megan Weber was feeling discouraged about her event horse who didn’t seem to want to do the sport. She’d made the decision to find a new horse but found she was struggling to connect to the several she’d tried.
She reached out to a friend who had experience with adopting mustangs, and the idea of an untouched, green horse sounded like a fun idea.
