Hero stuff: Hickstead and Eric Lamaze

20 Nov

okay, so this has nothing to do with books or readings or ya stuff…I’ll talk more ’bout from “Zero to Hero” in another post.
But the word “hero” is a weighty word and got me thinking about who we call a ‘hero’. For those of you who know Eric and Hickstead’s stories, I think you’ll understand.

So,  I wanted to acknowledge Eric and the recently departed Hickstead. God he was an amazing horse.

There’s a saying that for every man there’s one horse, and for every horse, one man…Hickstead was for Eric as Eric was for Hickstead.

What I liked about this video was that it was posted right after their gold in Beijing; so, it was in celebration, not just in memory.

stand up, for the champions…
