Onward and Upward with Steady Eddie


After Rolex Kentucky last year I put Steady Eddie on the market. But ever since Eddie the Eagle heard he might be sold, he’s been proving to me that he is one of the best Advanced horses in the country.

I talked to my co-owners of Eddie, George and Gretchen Wintersteen, Denise Lahey and Pierre Colin, and we’ve decided to take him off the market and push on with him. After I competed in the Olympics last summer I think we all had a little wake-up call as to how important a great cross-country horse is. George and Gretchen, Denise and Pierre and myself have all agreed that we’ve come too far with Eddie to sell him, no matter what the price.

We’re aiming Eddie for Rolex this year and most likely on to Burghley CCI4* in September. If he keeps improving at the rate he has been for the past year I think he could be a contender at next year’s World Equestrian Games in Tryon, North Carolina.

I’ve contacted the chairman of the selectors, Bobby Costello, and let him know Steady Eddie is off the sales list and is available for selection.


After producing many four-star horses I have a clear understanding of how hard it is to find one that’s sound enough and has the desire to jump round the biggest courses in the world. Steady Eddie is one of them. I was so surprised he didn’t get sold, but in hindsight I’m glad he’s still with us and it’s onward and upward with “The Eagle”.

I’m thankful to his owners for continuing to support this horse as I feel he’s at a point in his career where he can really do well at some of the big international events.
