I've ridden so many horses. Big horses and little horses. Baby horses and old horses. Horses straight from the kill pen and six figure hunters. It's been a life filled with horses, and I've enjoyed almost every one of them.
Still, a few shine brighter than the rest.
Regal Revenue was one of the brightest.
From our first ride...to our last...
Rev was always one of a kind.
He left hoof prints in my heart, a dent in my leg and a big scar across my collarbone. I have no regrets.
Last night I received a text from Rev's new family, letting me know that he'd broken a leg in a pasture accident earlier that day. It was not a reparable injury, so they made the sad decision to let him go. My heart breaks for the goofy red Arab and his girl, Grace.
My time with Rev was well documented on this blog, so I'm not going to rehash everything here. Instead, I'll leave you with some of my favorite Rev pictures. Godspeed, Regal Revenue. You will be sorely missed.
