Jasper was 25 years old when he was PTS in August 2019.
In his prime he was one of the best event horses in the world.
He retired at 16 with an impressive 1407 BE points, he spent his retirement fit and happily, he continued to live life as an Olympian, showing Sharon’s Niece Aimee, the ropes. He was adored by many.
“Jasper really was the most wonderful horse, to whom I owe everything. I wouldn’t be where I am now without him and I am eternally grateful for his patience and belief in me as his rider.“
Together Sharon and Jasper completed over 50 Advanced & CIC 3* classes, 11 being CCI 4* (old system), 4 of which were long format. 7 consecutive Badminton’s including 5th & 6th placings, represented their country at the World Games and finished 9th, not to mention the Olympic Games in Beijing, where they won a team bronze medal, then going on to win Luhmuhlen CCI 4* in 2010.
RIP Tankers Town . A true legend.
