Lexington, Ky.-
The United States Equestrian Federation mourns the loss of horseman R. Bruce Duchossios, who passed away on July 2, 2014 following  a long battle with cancer.  

“We will all deeply miss Bruce,” responded USEF President Chrystine Tauber at the news of his death.  “He contributed so much as a competitor, an owner,  a supporter,  and was perhaps one of equestrian  sports’ greatest enthusiasts.”

A popular competitor in the amateur hunter ranks, Duchossios was involved in many aspects of equestrian sport. With lifelong ties to the thoroughbred industry, he kept in active interest in racing. Additionally, Duchossios owned many of America’s top sport  horses, including Phillip Dutton’s Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event winner and 2008 Olympic Games partner Connaught.

Duchossios was actively involved in the administration of the sport including as a Trustee and Vice President of the USET Foundation and served on  several  USHJA committees, in addition to being a member of the Board of Directors of the National Horse Show. He was a lifetime member of the USEF and the USHJA  and was also a member of the U.S. Eventing Association and the  American Quarter Horse Association.
