Question Tracking down the owner of my old horse?

I rode a gelding when I was younger that I'd love to track down and see how he's doing...I know he's registered and I know his registration number (found it using, which gave an old owner, but it was definitely outdated) but can't seem to find updated info. I even contacted the breed association and they said they didn't know anything beyond 2006, which is also outdated.
I tried just a Google search of his registered name in quotation marks (keeps his name from breaking up in the search) and all I got was very old show results.

Any more ideas?

Riders aren't 16 and pregnant. Riders are 16 and arthritic.

He could be dead, or his owner may have retired from the show ring. If either are what happened, you're at a dead end.

You also need to tread very carefully. Some owners are not pleased when people from their horse's past come looking for the animal, and you're likely to find yourself on the receiving end of a rant.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

At this point, I agree you are at a dead end. Unless there may be facebook groups dedicated to this type of thing (I have heard there was but never checked them out.)

I have tracked down several people, from the people that used to own my horses, to the people who have horses I've sold. There has been a few people who never gave a response, but the majority of people are very happy to keep me updated or receive updates/pictures.
