Eric did a wonderful job of giving Harold a safe, sane round. Eric had not ridden him that much, it seems.

How horrible... I couldn't watch that entire video. Rest in peace, you were an amazing horse! I couldn't even imagine watching my horse die like that. So sudden. His jumping was amazing !

Hickstead blew the main aorta. When this happens, death is quick.

I feel so bad. ;( But why was Eric hitting him on the nose when he collapsed? To try to get him back up? Idk..I didn't really like that..

Hickstead had a history of colicing and I assume Eric thought that might have been the case and was tapping him with his crop, trying to maybe get him back on his feet? Then again who knows... when your horse is dying in front of you and you're not sure WTH is going on it's hard to say how anyone will act. It's not like he was doing it to be malicious.
