Last September, ConMoto Crazy Cato had suffered a severe tendon injury which incurred just at the ConMoto Championscup show jumping during his home tournament in Harsum. Now, his rider Friso Bormann has informed us that Cato’s recovery is progressing well. He is enjoying the best of care at his homestead, spending 30 to 45 minutes a day in the horse walker and an additional 15 to 30 minutes of strolling on the halter. In good weather, he is also given the possibility to move around freely in his 6 by 25 meters of paddock.
The Hanoverian may take his time to get well again. According to his rider, this is the top priority. In 2019, Cato will not go back onto the course under competitive conditions. He will slowly be reintroduced to the sport. Therefore, Cato may spend this year on the range by telling the four-legged show jumping offspring about the tournament vibe in Aachen and Salzburg. Maybe he will also give them an account about his achievements at the international championships in Verden, Nörten-Hardenberg and Braunschweig?
We at ConMoto are keeping our fingers crossed for our Crazy Cato. Especially in difficult situations, sponsoring and support are crucial. We sincerely hope that we will be able to admire him again on the show jumping court. The same applies to four- and two-legged creatures alike: health is more important than success.
