The EN team is extending its condolences to Emily Resinyak, whose lovely mare, Reatta HW, broke her leg in what appears to be a pasture accident last night. Reatta HW was transported to Auburn University this morning for evauluation, but unfortunately it appears that the injury was too extensive and the mare was euthanized.
Emily and Reatta had just completed their CCI3* together at Fair Hill, finishing in 37th place. This pair worked with Julie Richards, and Emily has brought the dark bay Oldenburg mare up through the levels since starting out at Training level in 2012.
Emily posted on her Facebook page that “she’s not just a horse, she’s my best friend.”
We’ll update this post with more information as we receive it, but in the meantime, please keep Emily and all who knew and loved her wonderful mare in your thoughts during this difficult time.
Rest in peace, Reatta.
