We already have a favourite famous horseperson - what about favourite famous horses?

Racehorse: Cigar - someday I will get to Kentucky Horse Park to see him . Also love Tiznow, Silver Charm, Istibraq, Moscow Flyer and Hardy Eustace

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

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

Eventing: Ready Teddy.

All other sports welcome, these are just the ones I thought of off the top of my head :-)

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

I loved Hickstead, There is a dressage horse I saw complete at devon that I loved, but I can't remember the name

For racehorses, I love Alydar just because he is my mares grandsire lol

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.
