History
Shunzo Kido was on the Japanese Equestrian team at the 1932 Summer Olympic Games held in Los Angeles, California. He was leading the steeplechase event, but noticed that his horse, Kyu Gun, was fatigued and dropped out of the race rather than risk injury to the horse. Two years later the Riverside Humane Society dedicated a plaque to Kido on the Friendship Bridge in Riverside, California.
