Foxhunter (1940–1959) was a champion show jumping horse ridden by Harry Llewellyn, best known for their part in securing Great Britain's only gold medal at the 1952 Summer Olympics (in the Team Jumping equestrian event).
Foxhunter and Llewellyn are the only horse and rider to win the King George V Gold Cup three times (in 1948, 1950, and 1953), and won 78 international competitions during their joint career.
Foxhunter died in 1959, and was buried on the Blorenge mountain, between Abergavenny and Blaenavon. A memorial plaque listing Foxhunter's achievements marks the site and a car park is situated nearby.
