Nadeem was a warm, friendly presence at events who guided countless students toward accomplishing their riding goals from his Up-n-Over Stables in Bloomington, Indiana. In addition to competing through the three-star level in eventing and Prix St. Georges in dressage, he was a USEA Level 3 Certified Instructor and coached the Indiana University Equestrian Hunt Seat Team for over 20 years. Throughout his career he touched countless lives, and and his tremendous impact on midwestern eventing will not be soon forgotten.
In addition to being an accomplished horseman, Nadeem was a great friend to many as well as a devoted partner to his wife Sherry and a loving father to his son Nadir. Our thoughts and deepest condolences go out to his family in their time of loss.
Over the past few months, and especially in the past few hours, countless well-wishers have taken to Nadeem’s Facebook page as well as the Nadeem Noon Support Fund page to share words of comfort and celebrate his life by sharing their favorite memories and photos. Together, from all the myriad perspectives shared, they paint a powerful portrait of a life well-lived.
Rest in peace, Nadeem. Go Eventing.
