One of my legendary 4* winners and ultimate tryer! Master Monarch has never been out of the top 10 in a 4* competition during our career together which speaks for his never-ending will to perform. A truly outstanding character and very special horse.

If you now want to know which is the best horse I have ever ridden – I cannot give you an answer! They are and have been such different personalities, individual characters and each of them is and has been wonderful in their own way. The one thing I can say the more riding I do the more I appreciate my early horses - my knowledge 40 years ago was so limited and the horses were fantastic to support the “gaps”.
