Following the sad news that Little Tiger has been put down at the age of 18, Horse & Hound looks back through the archives at the diminutive mare’s impressive career.

About Little Tiger

By Java Tiger, Little Tiger (aka Frosty) started eventing in 2001 with her owner, Dr Polly Taylor, with Phoebe taking over in 2003.

The pair went on to complete six four-star three-day events: Badminton four times in a row (2007-2010), Burghley in 2008 — where she gained her best placing, 16th — and Luhmühlen in 2010.
