We are so excited that this painting has finally been unveiled! The idea to paint the legendary Hickstead and Eric Lamaze came from Philip Roson and John Anderson. Some might know John from the International Ring at Spruce Meadows and others because of his great show-jumping venue near Calgary – Rocky Mountain Show Jumping. Plans were put into place for this project in March of this year following the tragic death of Hickstead last November. In hopes to remember the great athlete and to carry his legacy on it was decided that proceeds from sales of the 550 limited edition giclees and artist proofs would go to two programs – JustWorld International, a program supported by many equestrians including Eric, is helping impoverished children in areas of South America. The second program is RMSJ’s own First Leg Up who’s goal is to give inner-city kids as well as young up & coming riders opportunities they would not otherwise have.
Eric Lamaze has been a well known name in the equestrian world for a long time now but his best known partner became a legend.
Hickstead, a stallion small in structure but big in heart teamed with Eric to bring home countless victories.
Among them were a gold medal at the 2008 Olympics, 2-time winner of Spruce Meadows prestigious CN International, and bronze at the 2010 World Equestrian Games where Hickstead also won ‘Best Horse’ after jumping clear rounds for all the riders in the famous ‘final four’.
Of course these are just a few of the many wins that won the hearts of many fans around the world!
