Not sure if there is already a thread on this, but just thought I'd put it out there.

Early Sunday morning, Canada lost arguably the greatest equine athlete there ever will be. Hickstead, the 15 year old Dutch Warmblood stallion was walking out of the ring (at a major competition in Verona, Italy) when he collapsed and died of an apparent heart attack, although the necropsy is yet to be performed. Eric Lamaze and Hickstead took individual gold in the 2008 Beijing olympics and helped team Canada win silver. He was truly a horse in a million, and the entire equestrian community mourns his loss.
