Relive some of the greatest moments in the life of Big Ben, widely considered one of the greatest show jumping horses of all time.
Part 3 of 6
"This cavalcade of grace now rests.
He spoke in silence.
His story was our land.
Where in this world can manfind nobility without pride, friendship
without envy, or beauty without vanity?
Here, where grace was laced with muscle,
and strength by gentleness confined.
He served without servility.
He fought without enmity.
There was nothing so powerful...nothing less violent.
There was nothing so quick...nothing more resilient.
He carried Canada's hopes upon his back.
Our success was his industry.
We are his heirs.
He, our inheritance.
Big Ben was..."The Wind Beneath Our Wings."
