Claire Davis, 17, was the victim of a Colorado school shooting on December 13. She was also an equestrian, a passion that was honored at her memorial ceremony yesterday.
From Erin Critz:
In a touching and tear-inducing gesture, Claire Davis was honored yesterday in a ceremony celebrating her life. Claire’s horse, Graphite, was the centerpiece of the ceremony. Graphite was led into the arena and untacked for the last time. Claire’s parents received the cooler Graphite was wearing and Claire’s saddle, and a candlelit vigil followed. In the face of such unspeakable tragedy, the celebration of Claire’s too-short life is a testament to the incredible support the equestrian community offers. Rest in peace, Claire.
