    Default Didn't know if anyone else saw today, but Rhythmical crossed the rainbow bridge...

    One of the greatest jumpers of all time...

    Nona posted this on Facebook earlier...

    He was such a good horse. Really a freak of nature.

    And how could you not like a horse with his back story- traded for a truck load of used washing machines, or whatever it was.

    I heard this earlier this evening.

    I know Nona posts here, so I would like to extend my condolences. It was so exciting for me a young rider to walk into the barn and see a horse as special as Rythmical. He was such a character, and larger than his small body in so many ways. He will be missed.

    I watched him go in one of his first GP, amazing horse. His ability was a true talent and gift, so sad to hear that he left this earth. This world is not as brillant without him.

    SO sad that he is gone. But how brilliant that you found each other and we are eternally thankful that you did not name him Frigidaire or Whirlpool.

    How sad. He was one of my all time favorites to watch. And with the washing machine connection to top it all off.

    How old was he? It seems both like just yesterday and forever since we saw him go. RIP.

    According to USEF, he was 27. He had a good run.
