Hickstead Fundraiser

Saddened by the heart-breaking news in November of Hickstead’s passing, the OEF wanted to create an initiative that would honour his memory in support of a worthy cause. 

In 2008, following the Summer Olympic Games, the OEF commissioned equine artist Debbie Goldring to create original pastel head studies of each of the horses on the silver medal winning team. Debbie did an exquisite job and the original portraits were proudly presented to the horses’ riders in recognition of their incredible results at The Games.  Among the portraits was a beautiful study done of Hickstead, a copy of which graces the cover of this issue of WHOA!  

Eric has kindly signed his copy of Hickstead’s portrait and copies will be available for sale exclusively through the OEF Office.  All proceeds raised from these sales will support therapeutic riding in Ontario. To purchase your copy please complete the purchase order form located on the OEF website. Copies will be high quality prints appropriate for framing and retail for $30 each (includes shipping).
