[More] Horse heroes…

21 Nov

In all of this very tragic news about Hickstead, and the abrupt ending of an incredible partnership with Eric, let’s not forget Big Ben and Ian Millar. That partnership dominated the show jumping world in the late 80s/early 90s, winning back to back World Championships in ’88 & ’89. I was lucky enough to see him twice: once at the Royal Winter Fair (where they had a double clear and helped the canadian team with the Nations Cup) and once at a show in Collingwood (where I was close enough to take pictures!)

Ben the tall, handsome super-star and, what more do you need to say about Ian than “9 time Olympian”! (That’s right: 9 Olympics!)
