Dassett Eventing remembers Terry Horgan vet killed in car accident

Terry Horgan Death – Cause of Death :  Terry Horgan who lost his life in a tragic automobile accident that happened last weekend has been remembered by Dassett Eventing as a “very special, generous, hilarious, and overwhelmingly kind man”. Horgan was a Veterinarian at Terry Horgan Equine Vet.

“A full week on from the terrible accident that took him away from us all, we here at Dassett Eventing would like to remember a very special, generous, hilarious and overwhelmingly kind man. Our vet, our mentor, and above all else, our friend – Terry Horgan.
Terry’s exceptional horsemanship, positive influence, and unrelenting support has completely shaped the foundations of all that is Dassett Eventing. He started working with Kate over 20 years ago. To simply say he was “our vet” in no way does justice to the service received by both ourselves and our horses in his care.

Terry was an integral part of the team at DEHQ and was just as likely to be found watching Ella run up her Shetland pony, dispatching top tips for her next big trot up, as he was to be found in the barn examining the horse he had actually been called out to see! It was also a well-documented fact that if you were going to be called upon to ride a horse in the arena for him, you had better be prepared for one of his famous dressage lessons!! Never one to pass up an opportunity to share his breadth and depth of experience, his all-round horsemanship was second to none and many a DE jockey has benefited from one of his impromptu tutorials … as long as you could figure out what shape to ride when told to do a “shamrock” that is!!

Our thoughts are of course with his family during this incredibly difficult and painful time. Terry was a force of nature with a heart of gold and the void he leaves behind will be felt by many. We shall therefore aim to do him proud and to keep his wonderful spirit alive, by continuing to treasure and appreciate all he has taught us, as long as both horses and people alike are in our care.
Gone, but never forgotten and impossible to replace.

According to social media post made by Harry Horgan Terry’s funeral will be held at the Corpus Christi Catholic Church, Tring HP23 6BA on the 20th of December at 12 pm. They also request all those attending not to wear black tie but instead wear an item of colour. They also welcome those attending to join them at The Stag, Mentmore LU7 0QF. And for those who wish to make donations, instead of flowers, should make a donation to the Injured Jockey Fund.

Terry Horgan’s obituary will be released by his family.
