    Does anyone remember Lea Anne Neal? She had Suna for a short time and then seemingly disappeared.

    I know that Conrad Homfeld quit riding in his prime, but I think that he was forced into it by an injury.

    Linda Zang
    She has a nice show/sale barn in MD. She trains and has students...while I haven't seen her mounted personally...I would think she still "hops" at least for fun.

    Actually, Michael rode show jumpers, not eventers, and Rodney Jenkins made the same transition before him.

    I knew up to a couple years ago she came down to winter in Virginia at the Mellon's property in Upperville. I had a boarder that had been a student of her's when the boarder was younger and hacked over for a couple lessons. I got the impression that Torrance was still riding and training at that point.
    Grab mane and kick on!

    Didn't I read recently that Ellin Dixon Miller is now a horse show mom?

    There are lots of juniors that made it to the top of the equitation ranks, graduated from the juniors and then went in other directions in "real life". Do they count? I watched an old George Morris video with friends while waiting for midnight on New Years eve, and Francesca Mazzella (butchered that, I know) was the demo rider; I don't believe she rides any more, but I think that may have been another injury-related one? She sure was a lovely rider!

    Still trains though I think...he was coaching at the Pan Am's in '99, although I guess that is getting to be a long time ago now....
    I love cooking with wine. Sometimes I even put it in the food.

    Francesca sustained a head injury. She is a great person and was a gorgeous rider. Another from that era -- Jenno Topping -- is now a very successful Hollywood film producer.

    There are too many that retired due to age to list.

    I wonder about others who quit for reasons unrelated to age
    (basically, others in their prime)?

    Michael Matz may have evented some maybe but he was far more famous as a show jumping rider. Are you sure you aren't thinking of J. Michael Plumb?
    Talked to my mother today, the event her horse competed in was in Middletown, DE and it was probably back in 1974 or so and it was definitely Micheal Matz - if you want to argue with her go ahead but she still scares me
