"I have many memories of Liz Toothe who taught me to ride & care for a horse. Lesssons about hard work, patience & perseverance in mastering the sport. She taught us about growing up & created a wonderful childhood community for us. Even though I've moved on from the Bahamas the things she taught me remain indelibly stamped in my psyche forever. People at  stables & hunt clubs often asked me where did you learn to ride like that, Those moments are dedicated to her, and the rock solid foundation she built. RIP"

"One year gone and your spirit lives on. Limbo and Bismark are both doing well and have settled right in to our routine, They are a permanent reminder of your work. Little Bismark has overcome his initial shyness and is quite content.He has started to go out to the beach and thoroughly enjoys those outings. It is as though he has been doing it all his life."

I knew you my whole life and you have taught me so many things about life, horses, horse riding, just everything. Your stories will be remembered for the rest of my life. I missed you while you were here and now will miss you even more. I hope you are happy, riding gorgeous horses. <3"

"Dear Liz, it is hard to believe that you have left us. I will always value your friendship. You were so generous to all although appreciated by only a few. I am sure you are now reunited with King, Holly Diana and all your beloved animals. We miss you!"

This tribute was added by susan smith on 26th July 2012

"Dear friend, how we all miss you ! You were way too good for those of us here, but you chose to stay and try to pass on your knowledge and deep understanding of the horse world, often unappreciated. But nothing stood in your way and you battled on until the end. You affected so many lives, more than you could ever  have known.  Now you are free to ride the green pastures on the other side,"
