Very sadly, Chloe Reid’s wonderful Codarco has passed away. On her official Instagram-page, Reid shared a tribute to the 11-year-old stallion yesterday – writing:

“Dear Cody,

The day I first sat on you was the worst trial I have ever had. I was so incredibly nervous and intimidated by your power that I couldn’t find a distance. I will never forget how we trotted into the combination and crashed out through the oxer, yet you continued to keep jumping and safely carry me around. While I’ve had numerous riders tell me over the years that they tried and passed on the opportunity to purchase you, I will feel forever fortunate that you choose me to be your rider. Even though you could have had way more success with any of the more experienced riders, I was the lucky one who got to take you home. 

Thank you for being my partner of a lifetime. 

You are leaving so many people heartbroken and one little girl who will never forget you. 

Rest easy my fluffy minion 
01.01.2007 - 02.06.2018 

Please respect his honor and my team to gather all the answers of why we lost him so soon."

Together, Reid and Codarco finished third in last year’s CSIO5* Grand Prix of Falsterbo, and they were also double clear in the Nations Cup at the same event for Team USA. The pair also jumped clear rounds in the Nations Cup in Sopot and Wellington for Team US last year, to mention some of their many good results together.

Our condolences go out to Reid and her team in this difficult time.
