Beezie Madden on Cortes C

 

Sadly Beezie Madden's horse Cortes C aka Tiny sustained a tendon injury in yesterday's team show jumping competition in Rio. Thankfully he is expected to make a full recovery.

"We are heartbroken to announce that Cortes C sustained a tendon injury in yesterday's competition and will be unable to compete for Team USA today. We are confident he will be able to make a full recovery.

While we had hoped to do everything we could to help the USA towards a medal today, Tiny's best interests must come first. We are so thankful to our teammates, sponsors and most importantly, his owner, Abigail Wexner, for understanding that in this sport, sometimes winning means doing right by your best friend. We will be there today on the sidelines doing everything we can to support Kent, Lucy and McLain."
