Jordán Linstedt’s four-star event horse RevitaVet Capato was euthanized after he shattered his pastern in a pasture accident on Oct. 18. 

Capato, a 15-year-old Hanoverian gelding (Contendro I—Annabelle, Amoroso), was incredibly spooky when he came to Linstedt. But Linstedt saw something in him, and her insight paid off through their 10-year partnership as she brought him from training level to advanced. Their biggest win came at the 2017 Pedigree Bromont CCI*** (Canada), where they led from start to finish. They completed the Rolex Kentucky CCI**** twice, in 2015 and 2016, and won the 2016 Twin Rivers CIC*** (California). Most recently they were second in the advanced division at the USEA American Eventing Championships (Colorado) in 2018.

Capato and I were made for each other and shared a long journey through many highs and lows,” Linstedt wrote in a Facebook post on Oct. 25. “When I said goodbye to my sweet boy, I let go of a piece of myself. Capato was a horse of a lifetime, and I am grateful for everything he gave me; with him the biggest goals and dreams became achievable. We believed in each other and persevered when others doubted us. Capato will forever be with me.”
