"Prince" was the rare type of horse that took care of his rider while teaching them how to ride. Prince was a wonderful teacher, showman, friend and family member who wore many hats during his lengthy career in and out of the show ring. Prince has been a trainer's favorite, a beloved lesson horse, a lease horse and a sale horse. His quiet temperament, jumping talent and inner and outer beauty captured the hearts of many.
He taught us how to ride, compete, win and lose and what it means to be a team with a horse. Prince touched the lives of many and was a wonderful ambassador to the show world. Prince taught you to work hard and instilled in all of us a love of the sport and we are so honored to have had the privilege of sharing our lives with him. He will forever be in our hearts.
