It is with an incredibly heavy heart that we announce the passing of our rider, volunteer, trainer and dear friend Cliff Uber. For ten years he has graced us all with his beautiful presence, infectious smile, sense of peace and patience and a wonderful sense of humor. The grief we are experiencing can not be described.
Cliff was a shining light to everyone he met. One of the things said about him in his nomination for Adult Independent Rider of the Year Internationally, was that he has taught all of us way more than we were ever able to teach him.
Cliff was never seen without a smile on his face and encouraged people he didn't even know he encouraged. This year he received a letter from a former rider that had seen him in his early years. She told him he had changed her life and he never even knew it.
This world was a better place with him in it, and saying he will be missed dearly just doesn't even touch the tip of the iceberg of love we have for him. Rest in Peace our dear friend...
The family has requested that In lieu of flowers, memorial donations be made to Hearts and Horses. Details can be found under the giving tab on our website www.heartsandhorses.org
