Kayty, I'm both commented on facebook & mentioned it in a reply on PM.

But, your literally the most inspiring horse owner. If my horse was in a situation like you were in with Hugo: I can only hope that I too am able to put my horses needs before my own. You have truly done the right thing.


Sir Success. Eventer.

So very sorry for your loss. He sounded like such an incredible horse and it is a true shame that he previous career had such an effect. You sacrificed a lot for him, and I am sure he is thankful for all you did for him.

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky

I can't see the pictures as I'm in work, so subbing to see when I get home.

RIP Hugo and big hugs to you Kayty xxx

The video that the photographer put together for me. Such perfect song choice, it suits him to the T. Making me bawl though :(

• Horses: 2 heart goes out to you. You did what needed to be done for your beautiful boy and that took more courage than I can imagine. You are most definitely a horseman that many of us should emulate. RIP lovely Hugo.

Allison, I currently look like a puffed up toad after watching that video a few times. It's so beautiful, but I kind of wish I hadn't watched it while it is all still so raw.

That was a beautiful video, Kayty. I can't imagine how it feels but you have great memories.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.
