Poor Lamaze, he must have felt so helpless.

A ride a day keeps the worries away!

Absolutely horrifying.

Life seems mighty precious, when there's less of it to waste.

They did in fact collect semen and he has several foals, one of which is owned by Eric Lamaze.

Heartbreaking for the Canadian Equestrian's and Canada as a country. Hickstead was considered one of the best in the world. Eric Lemaze has lost his most important dancing partner. RIP Hickstead.

Glorious, glorious horse, and what a horrible way to lose him.

I feel terrible for Eric, and for all the people in that arena who watched this happen.

Yikes, it's so sad when a horse dies at a show. I was at an expo once and an arabian dropped dead in an english class. I would absolutely hate for any of my horses to die that way, I would feel so guilty.
