A SAD DAY
Sorry to give you bad news, we lost another of our heroes over the weekend, Walter who was at least 35 passed away suddenly probably with a heart attack. He was in fantastic condition and nothing wrong with him other than extreme old age. We have had him for over ten years and he would have been put down without our intervention. This summer one of his old riders came to see him and told us how brave he was. The officer was at a Millwall football match on crowd control and there had been skirmishes between hooligans all afternoon she found herself alone with a few officers on foot between two groups of yobs, Walter turned sideways and without any fear shoved the Millwall group back with the weight of his body. Up until his last day he was never a horse to be trifled with. Walter retired himself at a festival in Hyde Park. He was much older than anyone realised and had had enough. He dumped his rider in a heap and took off out of the gates of Hyde Park leaving a trail of chaos behind him. He was a huge character and was very popular with the public, he will be so very much missed. A big thank you must go to Chris (Walt was his favourite) who made sure that Walter had extra big feeds, and that he never got cold or wet in his last few months. He was such a character and that tongue hanging out will never be forgotten. A very sad weekend
