Freeman 6YO Dressage Champion

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of David Johnson,Managing Director of Equine Construction & Equine Planning.


David was filled with endless optimism, passion and determination.  He was a larger than life personality and possessed a great sense of humour.  His tragic passing comes as a great shock to Sarah and the rest of his family, and we thank everyone who has already offered their support and condolences.


His eye for detail and passion for equestrianism shone through in each of Equine Construction’s projects in which he took great pride in personally overseeing.  The passion and love for horses didn’t stop at building their homes or training facilities but stemmed back through a lifetime of riding along with breeding and producing elite level dressage horses.  David’s love of dressage was clear for all to see through his continued sponsorship of British Dressage’s Advanced Medium Championships, Keysoe’s CDI Grand Prix and most importantly through the support of his own horses. 


2019 gave David the great joy of witnessing Freeman, under the expert guidance of Hannah Biggs, crowed British Dressage 6-Year-Old Champion.  Having followed and supported every step of his horse’s career, to be able to share in this victory was a very special moment for David, and wife Sarah.


Equine Construction & Equine Planning currently continue as ‘business as usual’ under the management of Sarah Johnson.
