Arthur is my favorite eventer, Allison Springer's, main horse! He was foaled in 1999 and is a 17.0hh gorgeous liver chestnut Irish Thoroughbred gelding! Isn't he beautiful???

Headley Britannia, or Brit, is the main horse of Lucinda Frederick. She is small for the circuit she's in but is very fiery! She was foaled in 1993 and is a gorgeous mare standing at 15.3hh! Ain't she cute?

4. THEODORE O'CONNOR

Theodore O'Connor, or Teddy, is an adorable Thoroughbred/Arabian/Shetland cross foaled in 1995. He stands at 14.1 1/3 hands high so YES he is a pony!!! Despite his size, he was a dominant competitive horse! Unfortunately, Teddy had to be euthanized in 2008 due to a freak accident resulting in a bad leg injury. Rest in peace, big guy <3

3. BIG BROWN

Big Brown (that is my favorite picture above <3) is my absolute favorite male racehorse! He was foaled April 10th, 2005 and won the 2008 Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes! This gorgeous bay Thoroughbred is now in retirement (oh how I wish I could adopt him!!!!).

2. EIGHT BELLES

Eight Belles is my absolute favorite female racehorse of all time--just look at her!!! Foaled February 23, 2005, came in second to Big Brown in the 2008 Kentucky Derby. Sadly, Eight Belles collapsed after the race and had to be euthanized. (If only they'd stop racing them so young :evil:). Rest in peace, baby girl <3

1. MOORLAND TOTILAS

Moorland Totilas, or Totilas, is a gorgeous black Dutch Warmblood stallion standing at 17.1hh. I practically drool every time I see him perform! The picture above is currently my computer background! To me, Toto is hands down the best dressage horse in the world.



Well there you go! My top six favorite horses! What about you??? I really want to know! Why do you like them, what is their breed, height, occupation, etc. etc! Don't forget pictures!!!
