Sad death of Chris Willett
1st October 2017


Chris Willett's sudden death of a heart attack is a shock for the equestrian world. Based in the south east he was successful point-to-pointing, before turning his attention to showing.


He produced many champion lead reins, show ponies and show hunter ponies. His horsemanship and charm attracted many customers who enjoyed his enthusiasm and drive to win. However he was always ready to give kind word to an upset child or share a joke with those having a bad day.
