This horse has taught me so much which I’m very grateful for and wouldn’t be where I am today without. He’s impacted my life in so many ways and I honestly love him with all my heart, but good things always come to an end and even though this isn’t exactly the end, I’m so happy that he’s going to continue teaching and helping riders achieve their goals like he did with me. He is a completely different horse than when I first entered his life and he couldn’t be more perfect💕
Don’t know why, but I absolutly love this image and the editing on it :D

I love him! His suit at the Badminton trot-up last year was 😏😏
I miss Danza so much. Mainly because of how high I was able to jump. At once point I was maxing out the 4ft standards.

The most successful horse in the history of the Cheltenham Gold Cup, Golden Miller.
Born on 30 April 1927 in Ireland and bred by Laurence Geraghty, he was sired by the unraced Goldcourt, out of Miller’s Pride, an ex-hunter who was placed and also the dam of the good steeplechaser, May Crescent.
Golden Miller was first trained by Basil Briscoe, later by Owen Anthony, and owned from 1931 by Dorothy Paget, the British Flat Racing Champion Owner of 1943, and the Leading National Hunt Owner in 1933-34, 1940–41 and 1951-52.
He made his steeplechasing debut in 1931 at Newbury where he finished first, only to be disqualified for carrying incorrect weight. On 30 December he won the Reading Chase, and landed the Sefton Steeplechase on 20 January 1932.
As a six-year-old in 1933 and winner of two Cheltenham Gold Cups, he started as the 9/1 favourite in the Grand National, but fell at the Canal Turn.
He returned to Aintree for the Grand National again the following year, where he not only won, but also set a new course record of 9 min 20.4s f.
By being the only horse to win five Cheltenham Gold Cups, from 1932-1936, he also is the only to have won the Cheltenham Gold Cup and the Grand National - Britain’s premier chases, - in the same year, in 1934.
Golden Miller was retired in 1939, with a record of 52: 29-7-6.
He died in 1957, and is buried at Elsenham Stud.
A statue of Golden Miller was erected near the parade ring at Cheltenham.
