Maryland will miss trainer and eventer, Javier Corradini, who lost his battle with cancer on February 16. He was 38.
Relatives and friends may visit on Friday, February 24, 2017 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm at the Roy W. Barber Funeral Home, 21525 Laytonsville Rd., Laytonsville, MD 20882. A Funeral Mass will be held on Saturday, February 25, 2017 at 11am at St. Mary of the Mills Catholic Church, 114 St. Mary's Place, Laurel, MD 20707.
A native of Argentina and a lifelong horseman, Javier was the only civilian admitted to the Esquela Militar de Equitación for an 18 month course of equestrian studies where he rode six hours a day, six days a week, with an emphasis on three day eventing. After completing his education, he came to America, landing in Maryland, where he established a career as a trainer and a family. Former Equiery contributor, former manager of the Columbia Horse Center and now a best-selling children’s author, Nanci Steveson remembers Javier:
“Nothing prepares us for the loss of someone as young and vibrant as Javier Corradini — horse trainer, riding instructor, beloved friend, teacher of life, pusher of the hesitant, and most magnificently — dedicated family man. Javier spent 16 years as a highly respected trainer/coach at Columbia Horse Center. More importantly than what he did, was how he did it. He possessed a rare connection to horses; taught with clarity and passion; acted with deep compassion for the weary, and vision for those who needed his wisdom. He lived by his own rules, set highest standards for himself, and treated all people with dignity. Nothing mattered more to Javier than his beloved wife, Cate, and their daughter. After courageously battling cancer, Javier, 38, left his life the same way he lived it — full of grace, optimism, love and fireworks, with both his wife and mother at his side.”
A college fund has been set up for his daughters, Georgia Jean, age 2 1/2, and Charleigh Cristina, 8 1/2 months. www.gofundme.com/college-fund-for-Javier's-daughters ... See MoreSee Less
