Just an addition this is what I mean by putting ''effort'' into his jumping...like over the standard.

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

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.

I was heartbroken when I watched the footage. What a horrible thing to happen.

I've never heard of that.. o.o At my last barn, my trainer had two stallions in their late 30s.
