Very sadly, Guy Williams' Depardieu van't Kiezelhof has passed away. 

The British rider shared the sad news on his official Facebook account earlier this week, stating: "Losing any animal is hard, but losing a work mate of nine years has been devastating. Zak has been a brilliant horse and has won so much for us. I'm heartbroken writing this and so sorry for Lindsay, Zak's owner. RIP Depardieu."

The 14-year-old gelding by Thunder van de Zuuthoeve x Latano has had a successful career under Williams, and this year the two won a CSI3* Grand Prix at the Sunshine Tour in Spain. Depardieu van't Kiezelhof also has international victories from Birmingham, Hickstead, London, Béthune and Lons Le Saunier on his record with Williams in the saddle.

Our thoughts go out to Williams and his team.
