    That's awful. He was a really nice guy, and my thoughts turn to his wife and children.

    What happened?

    Equine Canada Mourns the Sudden Loss of Canadian Grand Prix Rider Jon Costin


    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.


    Jon was a well-respected professional dressage rider, training and coaching out of Jon Costin Dressage Inc. outside Toronto. His career highlights include competing at the 2001 World Young Horse Championships in Verden, GER with Rebel Rockstar and being short-listed for the 2006 World Equestrian Games in Aachen with partner Wholio his 17.1hh Hanoverian gelding sired by Warkant.


    On behalf of Equine Canada we extend our sincerest condolences to his family, friends, and colleagues. A funeral mass will be held at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Freelton, ON, on Tuesday at 11 a.m.

    Do not confuse motion and progress. A rocking horse keeps moving but does not make any progress.

    I think she means that the death was not caused by a horse related activity, and that the family has not released the cause

    My coach was good friends with him, she said he was the NICEST guy. Such a tragedy to go at such a young age and with four kids under the age of 16
