  1. So sorry to hear Blaze has passed, he was such a beautiful boy. I think I understand why Courtney loves him so much because I am lucky enough to have one of his sons. My Bentley, aka Hes Hot N Handsome is a special horse too. Blaze passed that sweet personality on. Bentley is handsome, loving and showing him has always been so fun, he always gets noticed and is usually the most beautiful horse in the ring. But just being around him at home makes my day. I can’t imagine life without him so my heart hurts for Courtney. Rest In Peace Blaze.
