Ottawa, ON, May 9, 2013 --- It is with great sadness that we mourn the sudden and unexpected passing of Jon Costin on Tuesday May 7th, 2013, at Joseph Brant Hospital in Burlington, ON, at age 44.
Costin, who trained with Neil and Cindy Ishoy for many years, was a several time Canadian World Cup League finalist, a USDF gold medalist, and, for three years, ranked top 60 in the World FEI/BCM Dressage standings.
