Endurance horse Hero, who helped Britain win a gold medal at the 1990 World Equestrian Games, died on 2 May, aged 30, at his retirement home in Ash, Kent.

He had been looked after for the past 10 years by Kay and Alan Anstey.

Joy Barling Loyla partnered the 15.1hh palomino in most of his career successes. The pair picked up a gold award at the 25th anniversary Golden Horseshoe Ride at Exford and represented England three times in the Home International, as well as winning numerous other rides including the Red Dragon and Breamore.
