We are devastated to report that Jordan Linstedt’s four-star partner Revitavet Capato was euthanized after shattering a pastern in his paddock on Thursday, Oct. 18, in Duvall, Washington. He was 15 years old.
“He was running and playing along side his best friend and big brother, Jack. Capato must have taken a wrong step, resulting in a shattered pastern. When I said goodbye to my sweet boy, I let go of a piece of myself. I watched his stoic strength finally come to an end,” Jordan said.
“Capato was a horse of a lifetime and I am grateful for everything he gave me. With him the biggest goals and dreams became achievable. We believed in each other and persevered when others doubted us. Capato will forever be with me.”
Jordan produced “Capato,” a Hanoverian gelding (Contendro X Annabelle, by Amaroso) she owned with Barbara Linstedt, from a 5-year-old after he was imported from Germany.
He finished in the top 10 in 18 of his 25 international runs, including winning the Twin Rivers CIC3* in 2016 and the Bromont CCI3* in 2017. Jordan and Capato competed at the Kentucky Three-Day Event for three consecutive years in 2015, 2016 and 2017.
In addition to his success at international level, Capato most recently placed second in the Adequan USEA Advanced Gold Cup Final at the American Eventing Championships in Colorado.
The EN team sends our deepest condolences to all who knew and loved Capato. He was an extremely special horse, and our hearts are broken for Jordan and her team.
