|Death: ||Nov. 5, 2011, Italy|
Hickstead, one of the world's most beloved horses, collapsed at a show-jumping tournament in Italy.
Hickstead was a superhorse, carrying Canadian show-jumper Eric Lamaze to equestrian gold in the 2008 Olympic Games. He was 15 years old and still at the top of his game, completing a run at the Rolex FEI World Cup Sunday before trotting away from a 13-jump course which he finished almost flawlessly. Then, in front of a gallery of fans, Hickstead gave way amd collapsed. There are no necropsy results yet, but experts say Hickstead likely had a massive coronary.
