Goodbye to Land Vision
It is always hard to say goodbye but Mark posted this lovely tribute to Land Vision ( Ben) on his facebook page last night.
Very sadly had to say goodbye to this wonderful horse last night. Land Vision (Ben) was undoubtably one of the most talented horses I ever rode and to win Badminton for us at his first 4* as a 10 year old was amazing. Due to soundness issues we never got to see just how good he could have been. He has been a fantastic hack for Carolyn in his retirement. Huge thanks to Sir Peter Vela and NZ Bloodstock for giving me the opportunity to ride him and to all the girls over the years who have been his devoted carers. He was loved by everyone who had anything to do with him. A true gentleman!
