Unfortunately Havarah lost one of it’s teammates today, and Kim Parisan lost a very dear friend.

Brio belonged to Kim Parisan, Maddie’s mom, and they, together galloped around many cross country courses and shared many wonderful eventing memories.

Brio was a chestnut, quarter horse, gelding with a big old white blaze. Although dressage was always a little bit of a struggle, Kim and Brio could dominate in the jumper ring and galloped cross country with ease.

In fact, at the Cecil County Fair this past summer, Brio and Kim racked in the ribbons!

As horse-lovers, we all know that a time like this is more than losing a pet, it’s losing a best friend. That being said our hearts go out to Kim and we all have you and Brio in our thoughts.

Brio passed away this afternoon. The cause is unknown but we believe it was quick and he didn’t suffer. I’ve attached some photos of Kim and Brio’s career so everyone could remember him fondly.
