RIP Blue Hors Matine!!!!

As some of you may or may not know, the dressage world was hit with the tragic death of super star Blue Hors Matine. She was one of the most (if not "the" most) dynamic movers I have ever seen perform. She broke her leg in a pasture accident and was euthanised. As with other horses who have tragically passed away (Barbaro and Theodore O'Connor to name a couple), I decided what better way to pay tribute to her than with this...

Wow I heard about that, how completely sad. Your drawing is beautiful, have you thought about sending it to the owner?

Beat me to it ;) That's gorgeous, Liz! I love the detail on the legs.  907

Lovely drawing, especially the swishing tail! Just so Matine!
