In Memory of Molokai

As we say goodbye to one of the greatest Eventing horses from the long format era, we must pay tribute to the glory that he posessed in his heydey. Here was a horse that was immortalized on the front of the Wheaties box, a horse that won the inaugural CCI4* in 1998 at Rolex Kentucky, and earned an individual silver at the World Equestrian Games in The Netherlands in 1994. Mo was responsible for bringing Dorothy Crowell to the top levels of the sport, taking her to England to complete Burghley and Badminton in the top ten, and then back to Kentucky again.

Luckily for us, Dorothy’s husband John has just posted a collection of old videos from the 1990′s, when Dorothy and Mo were competing regularly at the CCI4* level. Included in the videos are his 1998 winning cross country round from Rolex Kentucky, an up close interview with the two of them from 1996, and his retirement ceremony in 1999. I’ve attached two videos here, but if you want to see the whole playlist, click HERE.
