Lanson 16 "Lanny"
May 24, 1998-December 22, 2016. Lanny's lengthy life was full of exciting turns. Born with jumper blood bred into him, Lanny proved to not be talented in jumping and was sold to a vaulter in Germany where he became world champion in 2008. He arrived in the US in 2009 and competed with a Vaulting club until 2016 at varying levels. Then, he was mine (to lease) we did dressage together and attended a handful of shows and championships. 2017 would have been the year that we would have gone 1st level, but Lanny fell victim to "the most confusing case of colic [my vet] had ever seen" on December 19th. He was euthanized three days later after seeing no improvement and his chance of survival was slim. He will always be remembered as the goody, banana loving boy that could make everyone smile.
