Jan Byyny and Task Force at Badminton Horse Trials
Task Force, owned by JC Chester of Washington, DC and ridden by Jan Byyny, suffered a catastrophic hind leg injury and was humanely euthanized Saturday during warm-up at Southern Pines Horse Trials II. Task Force, a 16-year-old Thoroughbred gelding, had enjoyed a successful career in eventing with Jan. We extend our heartfelt sympathies to Jan and the Chester family on the loss of this great horse.

Jan and Task Force's accomplishments include: a 14th place finish at Blenheim in 2003, an alternate spot on the 2004 Athens Olympic team, a 4th place finish at the 2005 Rolex CCI****, and a win at the 2006 Jersey Fresh CCI***. The pair also represented the USA as individual competitors at the 2006 World Equestrian Championships, and were the highest placed Americans at the 2005 World Cup in Malmo, Sweden.
