If you read Horse & Pony magazine as a child you could not avoid being under the spell of British show jumping legend Milton aka Everest Milton., Milton, owned by the Bradley family and competed by John Whitaker, wowed the crowds in a career that spanned twelve years. The grey horse that could had a huge personality that won him an army of fans who stuck posters all over their walls, collected memorabilia and cheered him on over every fence.
* The gospel was ‘Horse and Pony’ magazine and Freddie the chestnut pony was god. The posters covered every inch of your wall, the free stickers ended up on every school book and some of you might even remember the day the magazine went from black and white to colour!
* You wanted to ride and own Downlands Cancara the black stallion who was the Lloyd’s Bank mascot and Milton the ultimate show jumping gelding
