Wilson purchased Double Jigger, registered with The American Remount Association as 7/8 Thoroughbred and 1/8 draft, in March of 1989 from an advertisement in the Chronicle. He last competed in 1995, at age 18, at the advanced level. He led a happy retired life as a pleasure horse after that point.

“We had just celebrated 19 years together,” said Wilson. “Jigger was a kind southern gentleman, a four-legged guardian angel. He taught me how to trust and strive for the best. I could always count on him to be there for me regardless of jump size or situation. He will be missed by all who knew him.”
