Favorite Horse Athlete

What is your favorite horse of all time? It can be any discipline of riding like racing, English, western, halter, ect.. I would like to start it off with my favorite being Secretariat and Man o' War which are tied couldn't choose between those two. So just add your favorites from past or present!

I honestly don't follow many athletes (horse or human), but I'd have to say Blue Hors Matine hands-down.

I remember seeing ONE video of her Dressage performances and fell in love. Looks like she is floating through the entire performance.

I have to add Uncle Mo to my list too man if not for the issues he faced a triple crown in 2011 could have happened I think. As for dressage Ravel and Weltinos Magic are my favs. but like greenbryerfarms I had never seen that dressage horse before gorgeous animal!!
