Drawing Hickstead.

:( I am so sad about his death, you have no idea. I can't even imagine what it would be like to lose my horse, I have no idea how hard it must be for Eric and Hickstead's owners. So, I have decided to draw a picture of Hickstead and mail it to Torrey Pine Stables.

I think I will draw this:

I was so incredibly saddened to hear about Hickstead. Definitely among my top 5 favorite jumpers of all time! So tragic. My heart aches for Erik Lamaze. I can't wait to see your tribute. Are you going to do this in graphite pencil or as digital art?

It was so horrible to see, I feel terrible for everyone involved with him. He will be missed. Can't wait to see your picture, I'm sure they will love it too.

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

What a wonderful idea.

Just as a side note, I think that Eric was part owner of Hickstead. Not only his rider.
