Who is your favour showjumper (horse)?
For me, Milton, with Sandro Boy a close second.

Pennwood Forge Mill - I remember being allowed to come down stairs to watch him compete on TV when I was little.
Honourable 2nd to Boomerang...
I also remember loving Stroller and Ryans Son when I was tiny.
From the modern era I was always impressed by the consistency of Shutterfly at the top level.

I always liked Joe Whittaker's Desdamona. I saw them win at Towerlands a few years ago. She's small but really feisty!

Oh and Robin Hood. I saw Him and Ben Maher as well. I've never seen a horse with a jump like that. You'd think he could fly!

Milton definitely and because he reminds me of Milton (in his jump, and something in his expression) Arko.
When I was very wee I was obsessed with Anglezarke. He was just such a big, sturdy, reliable horse. I liked him a lot.

Yes everybody loved Anglezarke - even when he had his Towerlands prefix..
Does anybody remember Jeff McVean and Claret? Top horse in late 70s, no bigger than a pony and Jeff used to jump out of the saddle over every jump.

Ryan's Son .
Because he was so not what a typical show jumper should be , and yet he was amazing .
And Milton because he was just beautiful .
ExitPursuedTheRoyalPrude · 22/02/2014 22:43
Yes yes yes to Penwood Forge Mill
And Boomerang a close second.

Anglezarke was fabulous as was Ryan's Son. Shame I can't think of any modern day show jumpers. Oh and David Broomes Philco.

The one and only Boomerang with the best horseman that was Eddie Macken. He had the best hands. Those were the days!

I'm going to go right back and say Stroller. It was that little horse that ignited what turned out to be a life long passion
