Pia Fortmueller & Orion

DK Saddlery sends their deepest condolences for the loss of Pia's great horse Orion.  Pia's latest statment from her blog:

Orion's light will shine on :-)

I am absolutely overwhelmed by the amount of condolences and messages I have received and I am sorry that I haven't been able to respond to anyone yet...but I must admit that it took me a couple days to even build up the strength to read through all the wonderful words so many people shared with me.  It's such a strange feeling because the reason why I avoided reading anything at all is because I didn't want to be overwhelmed with sadness again...and strangely enough...I feel just the opposite.  I am filled with hope, because after every message, caring word and hug that I received the pain of loss was replaced by a sense of inspiration.  I say inspiration, because, I now know, that Orion's life will always remain a shining light in my life.  The reason why I loved this horse so dearly is because he fought for me with his whole heart and I now know tha the best way that I can honour Orion's life, is to keep fighting, with my whole heart, just like a very special warrior, who is now dancing with the stars :-)
