Farwell to Mike Tucker (1944-2018)

A Service of Thanksgiving will be held to celebrate the life of Mike Tucker on Tuesday 10 April at 3pm, in Cirencester. Tucker – who in the UK was known as “the voice of equestrian sport” – passed away on March 28, at the age of 73.

Tucker had been Chairman of the Organising Committee of Olympia, The London International Horse Show, for the past two years and for over 30 years he was the show’s Senior Commentator.

Simon Brooks-Ward, Show Director of The London International Horse Show, said in a press release: “(…) Mike was a friend, provided wise counsel, and was professional to the last. He never ducked an issue that he thought needed raising and solving. Mike had huge integrity and was respected by all that had the privilege to know him. Furthermore, he was great company and had an immense sense of fun about him. He will be sorely missed by all of us. Olympia was only one of the aspects of the sport that he was involved in but speaking on behalf of the Organising Committee, the Stewards and the Officials we would like to pass on our heartfelt sympathy to Angela, Andrew and Emma.”

Tucker's popularity and recognition spread throughout the world, so a livestream of the service will be available for those who are unable to attend the service, but would like to be a part of the celebration of his life.

The livestream will be available from 3pm, and can be found on the Mike Tucker Memorial Page, in addition to the Olympia, The London International Horse Show website.
