Helen Langehanenberg and Damon Hill - Grand Prix at London 2012

Helen Langehanenberg and Damon Hill – Grand Prix at London 2012

The Global Dressage Forum put out a request for the best dressage horses in history for the 15th Forum to be held in the fall 2015.  You can see the top 8 listed here and vote on your favourites.

This got me to thinking, who are my favourites and how do you think they would rank in competition against each other?  Here are my top ten favourites in history – and it was hard to choose only 10!

Marzog ridden by Anne Grethe Jensen

Piaffe ridden by Liselotte Linsenhoff (I have never seen video, just photos but he looks cool!)

Rusty ridden by Ulla Salzgeber

Rembrandt ridden by Nicole Uphoff

Bonfire ridden by Anky van Grunsven

Gigilo ridden by Isabell Werth

Totilas ridden by Edward Gal

Valegro ridden by Charlotte Dujardin

Damon Hill ridden by Helen Langehanenberg

…and I need a Canadian in there too! Dynasty ridden by Cindy Ishoy

Who is your favourite dressage horse in history?
