Sad news about Metheringham Upton Hamlet Shire Horse of the Year Champion

By 02:28:00 , , , ,

HOYS are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Metheringham Upton Hamlet, owned by Paul Bedford.
'Hamlet' was the Shire Horse of the Year Champion at HOYS three times in 2011, 2014, and 2015. He had also won the prestigious King George V Trophy on three occasions as well as winning at many county shows.
Hamlet was out of Kerrial Hester, a daughter of Walton Supreme and one of the fifth generation of Philip Shipman’s home-bred mares. Hamlet was sold as a foal to Geoff Robinson, who named him. The following April, Paul was visiting Geoff while he was turning out horses. Paul took a shine to Hamlet and took him home the same day. As a yearling Hamlet was never beaten in his class, and went on to win the end-of-season championship at Marchington. 

We would like to offer our condolences to Paul Bedford, his family and his breeder Philip Shipman.
