Hickstead was just inducted into the Jump Canada Hall of Fame on Sunday night.
It is Royal Winter Fair time again and I remember the sadness last year when the news spread. I remember the lines to buy those armbands. I remember Eric participating in what is now the Hickstead International FEI competition. I remember the supporting crowd when he came into the arena.
Hickstead (and Big Ben) are the only horses that the general Canadian public knows....
Probably a difficult day for Eric, but he knows how Hickstead has touched everyone.
