John Michel Durr sits on the committee for the USEA Young Event Horse (YEH) program where he’s worked to design guidelines and expectations for the courses presented for the 4-and 5-year-olds contesting these divisions. His guidelines present a variety of questions to the horse without being too much of challenge. The goal is to always allow the horses to walk away more educated than they had started. Additionally, as well as being properly evaluated for a future career in the sport.
Temecula, CA June 13, 2017 - Tamra Smith, in conjunction with The West Coast Dempsey Syndicate LLC, regretfully announce that the 9-year-old Dutch Gelding “Dempsey” was humanely euthanized yesterday due to unexpected postoperative complications while in recovery at the University of Montreal Veterinary Hospital.
The surgery, which took place Monday morning, was required to repair an ulna fracture sustained during cross-country competition at the Bromont CCI3* Event. Unfortunately, after a successful surgery and subsequent promising prognosis for a full recovery, Dempsey suffered complications while in recovery which would not have allowed him a proper quality of life.
