I was lucky enough to see Eric and Hickstead compete at Spruce Meadows multiple times this summer... An amazing team! So sad :(

Unbelievable. How old was he anyway?

I am truly shocked by Hickstead's sudden passing. Canada and the whole world has lost a horse of unparalleled greatness. There is an immense void in my heart.
