Wednesday Video from KPP: Tour the Furlong Soundness Center with the Duttons

After suffering an injury at Pau last year and retiring from the highest levels of competition, Phillip Dutton sent his Tokyo Olympic mount, Z, to Furlong’s Soundness Center to begin his treatment and rehabilitation. Z has resided there for the past three months or so and has been a model patient. Now it’s time for him to come home!

Phillip and Evie Dutton recently took a trip up to Oldwick, New Jersey to pick up their boy and bring him back to their farm in Pennsylvania for the next stage of his rehab. Before loading him up, Dr. Brendan Furlong and Dr. Aja Harvey gave them a tour of the facilities and showed them what Z had been up to.

After such a heart wrenching injury, it’s wonderful to see Z looking happy and healthy and exciting to hear that he’s been doing so well — it sounds like Phillip is hopeful that he’ll be able to eventually have a lower-level career and I envy the young rider who may eventually get to pilot his around a course! Here’s wishing Z continued health and happiness in the next stage of his rehab!
