Jack aka ‘Sprut’, died on 30th November 2022, at the age of 34. He was Britain’s most capped and medalled event horse of his day. He won two Olympic team silvers, a World individual silver and team bronze, and four European team golds.

A consumate professional, he was known for his courage and flair across country which made him the perfect team pathfinder; a true eventing legend. You can buy a copy of his biography HERE.

Jeanette retired Jack from competition at the age of 20, but he continued to be ridden at home until he had turned 30, nannying the young horses on the yard
