Royal Kaliber, the stallion that took Chris Kappler to the Olympic team silver and individual bronze medals at the 2004 Olympic Games, is stable as he continues to recover from colic surgery performed in the Netherlands on Monday, Sept. 27.  Jack Snyder, DVM, PhD, Dipl. ACVS, a professor in the Department of Surgical and Radiologic Services at the University of California, Davis, and a director of the Olympic Veterinary Clinic during the Athens Games, and the veterinarian who performed the surgery, reports that Royal Kaliber is eating, sleeping, and drinking normally for this stage of recovery.


“Although there is still much concern and he is not out of the woods yet, all of Roy’s connections are very pleased with his progress at this point,” said Sally Ike, Director of Show Jumping for the USEF.
