Foxhunter's memorial on the Blorenge
Foxhunter's memorial on the Blorenge
Foxhunter was Sir Harry Llewellyn's mount between the late 1940's and early 1950's - an exceptional showjumping horse whose big heart, bravery and drive, when matched with Sir Harry's skill, flair and insight saw both scoop many of the major equestrian awards, prizes and medals of their day, including most famously Olympic Gold at Helsinki in 1952 - an unparalelled achievement for Great Britain in that sport at that time. Foxhunter lies buried on the Blorenge - part of his turf. Sir Harry farmed and owned land at Lanvihangel Gobion down in the Usk valley at the time.
