The horse has been the long time partner of Kildare's Judy Reynolds.
Ireland's most sucessful sport horse, and partner of Kildare's Judy Reynolds, Vancouver K has been retired.
19 year old Vancouver K has represented Ireland in an Olympic Final, a World Championship Final, a European Championship Final and three World Cup Finals.
Vancouver K, regularly broke Irish Dressage records and currently holds all three Irish International record scores in Grand Prix, Grand Prix Special and Grand Prix Freestyle To Music.
Along with his noteworthy performances at Championship level for Ireland, Vancouver K scored major international wins at Achleiten and Fritzens-Schindlhof in Austria, Dortmund in Germany, and at Pennsylvania and New York in the USA.
Judy Reynolds says "I know I have always said that JP would decide when it was time to retire but I've had to make that decision for him.
This horse has more heart than anyone can imagine and at 19 he still tries to give me everything. Too much. I've decided that it's time to stop asking. "
