America's favorite pony was put to sleep today after an accident on the Team O'Connor eventing training center in The Plains, Virginia. Karen O'Connor's diminutive 14.1-hand Pan Am gold-medal winning sport pony (ArabxShetlandxThoroughbred) captivated eventing fans with his gravity-defying leaps and amazing athletic precision.
Teddy had been shortlisted for the upcoming Olympics this summer in Hong Kong.
Thanks to Squib Girl for this great photo of him in action. He was an action hero of the horse world, that's for sure.
