Top 20 event horses of the past 20 years: pics

  • Enjoy pictures of the top 20 event horses, based on British Eventing points, from the Horse & Hound picture archives

    While our most diligent readers will know the delightful Lenamore carries the most British Eventing (BE) points since records were digitised, how many of the other top 20 horses can you name?

    Check your knowledge against our gallery (above) of the top 20 brilliant event horses, based on BE points. These special equine athletes have represented their countries at international championships while competing successfully at the very highest level throughout their long and illustrious careers.

    As well as a number of iconic equines of the past, also well placed within the top 20 are a number of current eventing stars, who you can expect to climb up the leaderboard as their careers continue.

    Who would bet against Opposition Buzz or Nereo (currently equal 4th on 2151 points each), climbing above Over To You, (less than 20 points ahead)? And will anyone be able to challenge Lenamore’s impressive total of 2321? Only time will tell…
