Who is this horse?

I'm doing a trivia contest, and I'm trying to identify this horse. Any help would be appreciated (even the breed of horse).

Thanks!

he looks like "Frans 289" that passed away in 2004. Go to this website www.toadstoolfarm.com/frans.html and be sure to read all the way down about him.

Don't know for sure, but it is a strong possibility

Thanks for the help so far. That's the only pic I have. If you click the link above it, there's a higher resolution version of it.

All the picture for trivia are printed in poor quality black and white, so it's hard to tell when or where it's from.

Probably. We won't know the actual question they'll ask about the picture until the actual contest (Feb 9-11). Usually the question will be fairly specific (ie, it might be the name of the horse and/or the person, or something about what they're known for), but occasionally it's more general.

It might be something more local too (maybe there was a Dressage competitor that was in the local paper). Otherwise it's probably either a famous person and their horse, or a famous horse (maybe in a movie?).

Thanks again everyone!
