Battling ill health, Eric Lamaze takes break from showjumping

Canadian Olympic showjumper Eric Lamaze is stepping back from competing while he contends with serious health issues.

For the past three years, Lamaze has been undergoing treatment for a brain tumor and continues to battle the condition with the support of his medical teams in Brussels, Belgium, and Paris, France.

Lamaze says he is taking “a sabbatical” from the sport, and fellow top-level rider Beth Underhill will join his Torrey Pines Stable and take over his rides when the horses relocate from their base in Brussels, Belgium to Wellington in Florida in December.
