"If you are inclined, as I am, to rate an eventer at first sight by how pleased you are to find it waiting for you at second horses on a Quorn Friday or a Beaufort Saturday, then inevitably King William would come out very near the top. Not only has he got terrific scope and physique, but also what is sometimes called 'the look of eagles', that is to say an imperious eye which, rather than focusing on his near surroundings, seems to be searching for a pack of hounds in the distant horizon....That, anyway, is the impression he gave me on the first occasion that I can condsciously remember seeing him, namely at the 1991 Badminton trot-up...." King William [1983-2002] was one of the living legend Mary King's great horses. He competed in two Olympics, in which she has competed at every single one since 1992, medaling 2x, as well as being a top, international competitor, on a variety of horses, since 1984.
