Horse & Hound has commemorated the life of the Lionheart with a gallery of photos spanning his successful career with former rider William Fox-Pitt. While we are devastated that we will not get to witness the partnership between Lion and Allison Springer, this gallery reminds us how truly great this horse was.

The eventing community has rallied around Allison since she lost Lion on Sunday. She posted the following note of thanks on her Facebook page last night:

I cannot begin to thank everyone enough for all their love and support through this terrible time. Naturally my team and I are completely heartbroken. We feel blessed to have had Lion in our lives and know that he will forever be with us in our hearts. I personally am completely blown away by the outpouring of support. Your letters, emails, texts and voicemails have helped to keep me strong in a time when simply putting one foot in front of the other has been a huge challenge. Thank you for being by my side. Your friendship means the world to me and is the greatest blessing of all.

Rest in peace, Lionheart.
