R.I.P. Call Again Cavalier.

Call Again Cavalier put down after Express Eventing fall



1 December, 2008


Mary King lost her Olympic partner Call Again Cavalier on Sunday afternoon during the Express Eventing International Cup at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.


The 16-year-old bay gelding fell late on the course after a wide, narrow corner fence called 'The Duck Houses'. He was taken from the arena in a horse ambulance under the care of Express Eventing vet John Killingbeck.

Though organisers have not released any official statement, H&H understands that the horse broke his femur and was put down.

Mary and Call Again Cavalier were the second last to go in a competition that had its ups and downs. The pair were on target to finish second to Oliver Townend. He fell at the second element of the Duck Houses, the 12th fence in a testing and up-to-height course.

Call Again Cavalier, owned by Eddie and Sue Davies and their daughter, Janette Chin, won the individual silver medal at the 2007 European Championships. The horse also took team bronze at the Hong Kong Olympics this summer.

I watched a lot of the Express Eventing videos on Horse Hero but I had no idea that Call Me Cavalier had died! Oh how horrible for this to happen to anyone! Express Eventing looks so incredibly hard! With only 6 actually finishing and a lot of blunders along the way I was awed but horrified at some of the things I saw. The sad thing being - Mary was doing so incredibly well too!
