"Wow, you’re holding your horse back!"
Yeah, every time I go to get my horse from the paddock, he looks at me with sad eyes and thinks about all of the great things he will never achieve because of me. Because horses do that.
this is a whole new level of white omfg
What/who did you sacrifice to get these socks so white
Heaven on earth here at the horse park
Orion got to have fun in turnout while waiting for the farrier.
Happy long and well deserved retirement, Celestial Halo. <3
Retirement announced on 18 September 2014.
The ten-year-old winner of six Grade 2 hurdle races and also a winner over the Flat, won the 2008 Triumph Hurdle and was runner-up in the Champion Hurdle in 2009.
Owner Andy Stewart said: "He has been a great servant and gave me my first ever Cheltenham Festival winner in 2008 when he won the Triumph Hurdle. It was a special day … He then looked like he was going to win the Champion Hurdle the following year, only to be narrowly beaten by Punjabi … He has been around the block and raced as a two-year-old on the Flat, and I said to Paul that if there were any signs that he did not want to do it any more, then we should retire him. So we have drawn stumps.”
