Eventing unfortunately lost another Olympic great this week, Julie Richard’s Jacob Two Two. “Jake,” an Off-The-Track-Thoroughbred lived his last years peacefully at Richard’s parent’s farm in Newnan, Ga.Glynis Schultz introduced Jake to eventing and piloted him through the two-star level before Abigail Lufkin got the ride, and the pair were named to the 2000 Olympic team (Unfortunately they were not able to compete due to an injury). Karen O’Connor and Jake shared a partnership for a bit after this before he and Richards began their competitive career in 2004.
