Our Horses

Our horses are the most important members of our team.  They must be safe, trustworthy and skilled at their job.  We take great pride in the horses of Complete Equestrian Vaulters, and provide them with the best of care.  They are turned out to pasture daily, have weekly therapy appointments, and are cross trained 3 days per week.

Dozer

2004     Dutch Warmblood    17.2hh     Gelding

Dozer is the newest member of our vaulting team.  He was imported from Prince Edward Island, Canada and made the long journey home to Colorado.  His personality and conformation could not be more well suited for vaulting.  He has quickly come along as an amazing mount for the international level vaulters, and we could not be more proud to call Dozer our own.

Rocky- Saying Goodbye to a Legend

Not every team is lucky enough to have been loved by a legend, but we were.  Rachmaninoff, or Rocky, was born in 1997 and he left us on February 5th, 2020.  In his lifetime, he touched the lives of thousands.  It was really his personality and athletic ability that stood out.  He was incredibly intelligent and motivated.  He loved to work and perform, often removing entire stall doors or barn walls at home or away to get to where the action was.  He was the most trustworthy horse imaginable.  In every situation, whether it was massive crowds, noise, fire and anything that most horses would shirk at; Rocky was born confident in himself and would always keep us safe.  He was an athlete, performing grand prix level dressage exercises.  He was a therapy horse for multiple programs; carefully carrying students with physical and emotional challenges through his great life.  He was a circus and renaissance performer; jousting, carriage rides, rearing, bowing, lying down and roman riding.  As a vaulting horse, he carried individual, pas de duex and squads faithfully for nearly two decades and for 4 clubs.  The legacy he has left behind are countless stories about how he made you feel brave and safe.  He was a massive boy, standing at 18hh and 2,000lbs.  To be on him, felt like you could conquer the world.  His eye was kind, and his ears always alert.  He was a beautiful horse, inside and out.  He had the spirit of a warrior, and he never gave up.  He beat cancer 2 times.  We often joked that during a nuclear holocaust, the last two things standing will be cockroaches and Rocky.  He truly was the solid rock and foundation of our club.  He helped build us into what we are today because of his talent and kindness.  We are sad that he has left us, but we rejoice in all that he gave Complete Equestrian Vaulters.  Good boy Rocky, we love you more than you could ever know.
