Heartbroken to write this post, but this morning I found Classy had died in the early hours.
I feel so privileged to have been given the opportunity to ride him and will be forever grateful to Olivia for choosing me to be his person for the last few years of his life.
The bestest horse anyone could have wished for. He gave me more than I ever expected and I’m so sad he won’t get to flick his toes as the 2* guinea pig at Blair this year (he would have loved being back at Blair!) but he went feeling good,happy and very much loved. His recent outing at the Royal Highland in the side saddle at 23yo just showed how he could turn his hoof to anything and was an absolute gentleman.
I get to keep him forever in my heart and he can watch over the others in his resting place.
RIP legend of a horse Classy Bear with the most amazing ears
