Harrison Euthanized after Retiring on Preliminary Cross-Country


Aspen Farms, Yelm, Washington, 1 p.m., June 12, 2016: It is with great sadness that we announce that Harrison, ridden and owned by Amy Evans, was humanly euthanized after retiring on the Preliminary cross-country course at Aspen Farm Horse Trials in Yelm, WA on Sunday, 12th of June, 2016.

Harrison, a 13-year-old, chestnut, Thoroughbred gelding retired on course after fence 11, and was transported to stabling for further evaluation. Upon examination by the veterinary team, Harrison was diagnosed with a broken right fore and was put down.

The organizers and officials of Aspen Farm Horse Trials would like to extend their deepest sympathies to the Evans’ family.
