After a bit of cross-country trouble at Fair Hill CCI3*, Caitlin Silliman and Remington XXV re-routed to the CCI3* at Galway Downs. Remington was aboard a plane bound for California, but unfortunately he was unable to complete the trip.
From Caitlin, courtesy of athletux:
“Unfortunately Remi was not shipping well once we had him in flight to the West Coast. Because of this, when the flight stopped to re-fuel in Lexington, we made the decision to let him off the flight and take him back to PA rather than putting him though the stresses of the remaining travel. He is an incredible horse, and I will always put his best interest ahead of my wants. Although we are extremely disappointed, he is completely fine and we will look forward to 2014 together. Thank you to his incredible owners and all of the people who rallied together at the last minute to send us to Galway Downs, it was yet another reminder of how lucky I am to have the support system I do! Also a huge thank you to Alandra and Aubyn who were on board the flight with Remi for their help. Wishing everyone competing at Galway a safe ride and the best of luck. “
