R.I.P. Cuan, The international pony jumper

My student, who is originally from Norway, had her favorite pony, Cuan, passed away at age 43. His Irish name was King Kong. Anita was on the Norwegian pony showjumping team and showed around Europe. *R.I.P. Cuan, may you gallop forever in green pastures.

Anita, I know you are heartbroken that your old partner is gone, but you and your family gave him a long and fruitful life. HUGS to you, my friend!

So sorry to hear that Allison. What a stunner of a pony! 43 is pretty darn amazing though.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

He was.
Too bad America doesn't give much credibility to pony jumpers. They are very serious about them in Europe and even field national showjumping teams for them.

That's a shame. We used to go to the Haflinger shows in Berrien, MI to watch for fun. Some of those little buggers could really jump!

My sister did well with her 13hh quarter pony jumping on a smaller level though his little tank butt could clear the 6 ft round pen when he felt inclined! I took him 4 ft once and decided that was enough, he was like riding a rocket. Talk about launch!

wow 43!! I know ponies tend to live longer but still! Amazing. Oh and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the pony jumpers :) Im a fan of ponies, and luckily am small enough to train them. I've come across quite a few that could have possbily done the pony jumpers! They have such heart! I do wish it was more popular here too.
