We are so sad to share that Frankie Thieriot Stutes has withdrawn Chatwin from the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event presented by MARS Equestrian. She posted to her Facebook page that Chatwin sustained an injury in their last outing, the Advanced CT at Twin Rivers, which they won.
“The Universe has other plans for us, I have no idea why, but I am sure eventually I will figure that out. I have my horse, and luckily for me, he means much more to me as a partner than the ribbons or accolades we have earned and will earn together,” she said.
We know these two will be back stronger than ever, and we wish Chatwin quick healing in the meantime.
