RIP Hickstead <3

Showjumping rocked by death of Eric Lamaze's Hickstead - Horse & Hound

So unfortunate for the sport to lose such a great horse.

I saw the video. It was horrible! I can't believe this has happened!

May you rest in peace. His hoofprints are forever engraned in all the hearts you have touched!

Oh no! How tragic! Hickstead was an amazing horse. I remember watching him on TV when he got the 4 clear rounds at WEG. He was a truly amazing and wonderful horse. RIP Hickstead.

Sigh, that's such awful news. What a tragic thing to happen to show jumping! Hickstead was right up there with Big Ben and all the other great horses. :(

I'm glad I missed the video. Thanks for the info, I did read the link. He was such an amazing horse. I'm wondering if he blew the main aorta going into his heart.
