We were sad to report yesterday that three-time Burghley winner and eventing legend Avebury, owned by Rosemary and Mark Barlow and piloted by Andrew Nicholson, was euthanized. The list of accolades the son of Jumbo collected throughout his career was endless, and the sport was truly touched by greatness each time Avebury set hoof on the cross country course.
YouTube user Kate Atkin compiled this lovely tribute to Avebury following the news of his retirement earlier this year. Enjoy this look back at a star-studded career.
The EN team continues to send its condolences to the Barlows, Andrew Nicholson and all of those who were touched by this special gray horse.
