Allie Sacksen and Sparrow’s Nio. Photo by Leslie Threlkeld.

Still so devastated and sad for Allie Sacksen who lost her friend Sparrow’s Nio yesterday. Nio was a spicy Connemara who Allie has shared a long partnership. At 15.3-hands, he might not have been as big as other five-star horses, but he had one enormous heart. Their partnership inspired many riders around the country, and if there’s one thing I’ll remember about them, it might not be their many competition accolades, but their rock solid friendship. “A girl and her pony.”
