His funeral is tomorrow morning. Very sad day for the sport.
Equine Canada announced Thursday the death of Canadian Equestrian Team member Bryan Anderson, who passed away on Wednesday from injuries sustained in a riding accident. Further details were unavailable at press time.
“On behalf of the staff and volunteers of Equine Canada, I would like to extend our deepest sympathies and condolences to the Anderson family,” said Equine Canada President, Michael Gallagher in a written statement. “Bryan will be remembered as a gifted competitor, and his talent will live on through the successes of the horses and riders he trained with such dedication.”
Anderson’s success as an international rider began at age 16 when he, with mount Corrache, were members of Team Alberta who were silver team medallists in show jumping at the 1985 North American Junior Young Riders Championships in Wadsworth, U.S.A.
Utilizing his 35 years of equestrian experience, Anderson established the successful Bryan Anderson Show Jumping training facility in southern Alberta.
