I just learned of Stuart's passing this morning. I was also a student of his in the late 70's. What can one say about a man that had such impact on so many lives? He was my friend, and mentor. I had spoken with him in January and thanked him.
I would not be where I am today if it wasn't for our mutual interest in horses. I broke his filly, exercised horses on his farm, and shipped many horses with him. Everything he did he did so with passion and gusto. Which is why his classes were so interesting.
Stuart, thank you for sharing your life with us. We all shall cherish you in our hearts forever. Until we meet again.
