Dressage: Anky Van Grunsven's Bonfire - no others need apply

Showjumping: Big Ben.. the old legend Hickstead, Cagney, Monopoly.

Oh my Big Ben is definitely one of my favorites. But Blu Hors Matine is my absolute favorite ever. After Phar Lap of course.

Horses are like therapy ~ and almost as expensive

Hmm, I do adore Zan Parr Bar and Two Eyed Jack. I've ridden lots of horses with that breeding and loved them all.

I think my all time favorite though is Metallic Cat. Not just because he's beautiful, but because he's crazy talented.
