Lexington, Ky. – Dec. 19, 2017 – The National Horse Show is saddened by the passing our beloved friend and loyal patron, Hunter Harrison. Harrison served as the National Horse Show Chairman of the Board of Directors from 2012-2017 and facilitated the longtime partnership of Canadian Pacific Railways as the title sponsor of the National Horse Show.
Harrison was as prolific in the sport horse industry as he was in the railroad business. As the owner of Double H Farm, Harrison purchased horses that are recognized as some of the best horses in modern show jumping history, including two-time gold medal winner, Sapphire, under the guidance of McClain Ward. Ward is also the pilot of HH Azur as well as the recently retired HH Carlos. Currently being operated by Harrison’s daughter, Cayce and her husband Quentin Judge, Harrison’s legacy is continued through the excellence of their program.
“The National Horse Show is deeply saddened by the loss of our dear friend, Hunter Harrison,” remarked Mason Phelps, President of the National Horse Show. “Mr. Harrison’s wealth of knowledge and depth of experience is irreplaceable and will be missed by all of us who were gifted with the opportunity to work alongside him in any capacity.”
Our sincerest condolences go out to the Harrison family and team at Double H Farm.
